As Risk & Compliance Officer (0,5 FTE) you have an independent function within EPS. You will be responsible for stimulating, monitoring and controlling the (trends in) laws, regulations, internal rules – including the Code of Conduct – and ethical standards that are relevant to the integrity and, hence, to the reputation of EPS. Exact Payment Services (EPS) is incorporated to deliver payment initiation and account information services to Exact’s customers. EPS has a license as a payment institution from the Dutch Central Bank (DNB), specifically for rendering services 7 and 8. To ensure that we continuously comply with laws and regulations applicable to payment institutions, EPS is looking for a Risk & Compliance Officer.

The Job

You will be responsible to ensure as much as reasonably possible that EPS and its employees comply with the relevant laws, regulations and ethical standards, and to provide reasonable assurance thereof to the Board. To this end you will be:

  • Formulating policies on sound and ethical business operations, including client due diligence and transaction monitoring
  • A trusted advisor of the board for risk and compliance

  • Identifying changes in legislation and regulations that have an impact on the product proposition and the business operations
  • Providing risk & compliance training and awareness
  • Supporting the organization, management and employees in managing risks, for example by supporting the board in setting up, maintaining and executing EPS’s control framework;
  • Maintaining contacts with regulators (e.g. DNB, AFM and AP) industry associations and the like.

You will act independent from the first line business operations, including IT, finance and commerce. To be able to perform your work you will have access to all information, information systems and people that he/she deems necessary to have access to for a proper performance of the function. You will report directly to the chair of the board of managing Directors of EPS.

As EPS is still in its start-up phase, the function is currently a part time (0.5 FTE) position. 

Your personal profile is characterized by qualities of discretion, objectivity, independence and professionalism. You build relationships naturally with all levels in the organization. You have experience to remain effective and are a trusted advisor in a dynamic organization. You can evidence organizational skills and are able to prioritize high volume mix of steady tasks and ad-hoc cases.
