We are a specialist consulting firm with an established reputation in the field of risk consulting and are keen to deliver high quality consulting services that exceed expectations.

The team combines the knowledge and experience of 220 colleagues who are based in one of the six other Zanders entities. Our FRM consulting business focuses on quantitative risk-related projects for banks, insurers and asset managers and includes a team of more than 60 consultants, which are currently mainly based in our Dutch and Swiss offices. We are therefore expanding this team beyond these two 'home offices' in line with our ambitious growth plans.

  • You proactively research market and product developments.
  • You have a close cooperation with your colleagues in Scandinavia and other Zanders offices to strengthen our Nordics business line.
  • You will participate in activities such as presentations, customer events and networking. 

Skills to be successful

  • A proven track record in the field of Financial Risk Management with knowledge on best market practices, current topics and regulation.
  • At least 5 years of relevant experience at financial institutions or consultancy firms, more experience is very welcome.
  • A network within Financial Institutions in the Nordic Area.
  • Strong interest in building and maintaining client relationships.
  • Ambitious with an entrepreneurial mindset.
  • Fluent in Swedish and English. 

We offer in return

At Zanders you will of course enjoy attractive conditions of employment: a good salary, a nice number of holidays and a Zanders bonus scheme. But there is more to look forward to.

Will you be working at Zanders? Then we will offer you:

  • A good balance between work and free time in combination with a healthy work from home ethics and wellness policy.
  • A unique opportunity to set up a new business, where you will be responsible for business development and people management.

  • Opportunity to advise and work with a variety of well-recognized (global) financial institutions.
  • Challenging assignments and responsibility within a varied project and client portfolio with plenty of opportunities for personal development.
  • Varied and personal training to elevate your consulting skills and content knowledge.
  • A lively and entrepreneurial team, an organization that encourages, motivates and focuses on its people.
