KYC/CDD Analyst (0,8 / 1,0 FTE)

Stibbe currently has a vacancy for a KYC/CDD Analyst for its Client Onboarding Team.

Dutch proficiency is required for this position.

Some of your duties:

As a KYC/CDD Analyst, you will identify, together with the lawyers and civil-law notaries, who our clients and prospects are, how their ownership and control structure is organised, what risks are associated with those clients, who the UBOs are, and what services they require.

It is of great importance to Stibbe to know with whom we are doing business and what risks we as an organisation face in providing our services. As part of our Risk & Compliance department, you are a key facilitator in Stibbe's client acceptance and review process, and an important source of knowledge for our lawyers and civil-law notaries.
To determine whether our clients are ethical and trustworthy, we need to get to know our clients well.

Your duties will include the following:

  • Conducting a risk-based investigation of new cases at Stibbe and identifying risks related to the client and the service requested;
  • Verifying data based on your impression of the client, reliable public sources, and the information received from the client and from our lawyers and civil-law notaries;
  • Acting as a sparring partner for our lawyers and civil-law notaries to identify risks related to potential transaction;
  • Conducting further investigation, including into the client's geographical and other activities, its ownership and control structure, and its UBO(s), where identified risks are reason to do so, and alerting lawyers and civil-law notaries to these risks, possibly after consultation with the Risk & Compliance Officers;
  • Checking existing files as to whether they are still up to date, and actively contacting lawyers and civil-law notaries;
  • Carrying out risk analyses in areas such as money laundering, terrorist financing and sanctions, and discussing these with the responsible lawyer or civil-law notary. You will take additional measures where necessary and record them meticulously;
  • Actively contributing to the continuous improvement of policy, processes and systems;
  • Monitoring the latest developments in the field of anti-money laundering, the prevention of terrorism financing, and sanctions, and sparring with other specialists in this field.

The team

The Client Onboarding Team (COT) consists of two data officers, two KYC/CDD Analysts and a COT manager. The KYC/CDD Analysts report to the COT manager. The KYC/CDD Analysts have the Risk & Compliance Officers as sparring partners.

Who are we looking for?

You have an HBO (college) diploma, preferably in a legal field, and an excellent verbal and written command of both Dutch and English.

Other qualities:

  • You are accurate and structured;
  • You have sufficient powers of persuasion and are pleased to spar with all stakeholders in terms of content;

  • You have an affinity for developing and taking the organisation forward with vision.
