To protect our customers and society as a whole, we dedicate our best minds and latest technologies to stop money laundering, financing of terrorism, bribery and corruption and other financial crimes by denying the criminals access to the banking system. Our scope is international, as we are the leading bank in the Nordic region with activities around the world, and we must be always up to date on the lookout for new threats and proactive responses. The task is exciting and intellectually rewarding. Are you up to the challenge? 

The offer

As a Senior Data Steward you’ll join Group Financial Crime Prevention (GFCP) at Nordea’s Centre of Excellence in Tallinn, where we continuously work towards our vision to have Nordea known for its excellence in protecting customers and society from financial crime. Our key focus points are Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Sanctions area solutions and improvements. We ensure on-going compliance with regulatory requirements and deliver solutions and services that help proactively and effectively fight financial crime.  
Your primary objective will be to support the Transaction Monitoring Data Asset Owner in planning, supervising and controlling the management and usage of data within Group Financial Crime Prevention unit through implementation of data governance structures, routines and processes. You have several years of senior experience in data management tasks in banking and financial institutions and will be able to adapt to Nordea’s own definitions and systems in no time.  
Your tasks include, but will not be limited to:  
  • Documentation of data standards, including definitions, business rules and data quality controls;  
  • Alignment and mapping of data asset -specific standards (data dictionary, data quality and other business rules);  
  • Supporting IT architects and projects in mapping of technical tables and fields to data asset -specific standards;  
  • Measuring compliance with the data standards and defined data quality targets; 
  • Liaising with data owners, Data Protection Office and other departments. 

Who are you

Collaboration. Ownership. Passion. Courage. The four key values that guide us in being at our best and that we expect all our colleagues to be committed to. We imagine that you enjoy learning and are excited about bringing your ideas to the table. You’re dependable and willing to speak up – even when it’s difficult.  
Your profile and background:  
  • You have strong previous experience in working with data and databases. Concepts / query languages as SQL, etc. are not strange to you. You have also tried a bit of VBA programming, Python or something similar. At the same time, you are not a quant person – the challenge to work with describing the data, communicating with stakeholders, mapping processes, developing quality standards etc. is more appealing to you than pure mathematical work with data;    
  • You have previous experience in AML area, preferably in Transaction Monitoring, at a senior level. You are well familiarized with different reports / monitoring scenarios banks apply to detect unusual / suspicious transactions. You have also good understanding about how data flows in a bank between different systems;  
  • You have academic degree in Economics, Finance, IT and/or Computer Science or Engineering;  
  • Excellent English. You will be expected to freely communicate with and present to colleagues and managers at various levels of seniority;  
  • Good interpersonal and stakeholder management skills. You will do well if you enjoy collaboration in diverse and multicultural environment;     
  • You are reliable with strong commitment and sense of ownership for your tasks and responsibilities; 
  • You have experience leading your peers while being able to take a hands-on approach to delivering results. 

Job location will be Tallinn, Estonia, in our modern offices in Ülemiste City. The position is likely to require some travel to other Nordea international sites.
