We are looking for new talented colleagues who would like to combine their quantitative background with consultancy and risk management. Are you eager to learn, take on responsibility and make an impact? 

Join us as a Manager in Credit Risk Modelling in Frankfurt! 

Context

Zanders is an international consultancy specialised in Risk, Finance and Treasury. The company has its roots in the Netherlands with regional offices in Europe, United States and Asia. Zanders recently acquired Private Equity backing and further expanded into several key locations globally. We have now opened our doors in Frankfurt am Main and are looking to expand the ‘Financial Institutions’ team. The team’s core focus is on credit risk and asset & liability management (ALM). Over time the focus will expand to include also climate change risk and blockchain technology. As a Manager you will have the opportunity to gain work experience in all these topics. Typical clients include banks, insurers, and asset managers. You will advise our clients surrounding their risk models, policies, and governance.  

Your role 

As a Manager you will work on a variety of quantitative credit risk projects in multidisciplinary teams to solve complex challenges and establish workable models that the client can put into practice.  

You will be advising clients, managing smaller projects independently and working in teams on larger projects. You will have your own specific role, clear responsibilities and will be the direct point of contact for the client. Every project offers a new challenge, new stakeholders and new complexity. Your impact on the business will be significant. Due to the “start-up phase” we will have in the first few years, you will be given considerably more responsibility than in other consultancies by contributing to develop the business from day one. 

Furthermore, Zanders offers a broad range of internal trainings, knowledge sharing opportunities and personal development.

  • A large network and connections in German banking industry. 
  • Regulatory understanding and preferably experience with TRIM missions, IMIs, OSIs etc. 
  • Strong knowledge of programming tools (e.g. R, Python, MatLab, SAS).
  •  Ambitious, entrepreneurial, innovative and analytical thinker. 
  • Flexible to travel. 
  • Fluent in German 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, mobility budget and a Zanders bonus scheme. But there is more to look forward to.

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

  • Opportunity to establish yourself as a credit risk expert in the financial industry. 
  • Challenging assignments and responsibility within a varied project and client portfolio with plentiful opportunity for personal development. 
  • Opportunity to advise and work with a variety of well-recognized (global) financial institutions. 
  • Varied and personal training to elevate your consulting skills and content knowledge.
  • Ambitious, service-driven work environment where innovation is key. 
  • Brand new office in Frankfurt am Main with an opportunity to (partially) work from home. 
  • A lively and entrepreneurial team, an organization that encourages, motivates and focuses on its people.
  • And on top of it, enthusiastic and helpful colleagues, good coffee, an annual Zanders trip to a (surprise) location in Europe and other social activities.
