The world of Legal & Compliance
All of ING’s legal-related business lines provide legal support and advice to all departments. The Legal department makes an active contribution to ING’s strategy by fostering stable and healthy organisational growth. As a financial institution, ING is monitored by external regulators and other supervisory bodies. The bank also takes the necessary steps internally to ensure that it stays within the boundaries of the legislation and regulations.
Legal is a partner in business
As ‘partners in business’, ING’s paralegals work very closely with bankers and risk managers to ensure that the bank’s activities take place under optimal conditions and with minimal risk.
All of ING’s products have a legal aspect
ING is a paralegal’s dream come true; there is a legal aspect to everything the bank does and everything that happens within it, plus the company offers a very wide range of products and activities, an international setting and the opportunity to further develop as a paralegal. ING Legal provides ambitious yet pragmatic paralegals with a unique work environment in which they can carve out a successful career, both in the legal world and also beyond if they wish. The diversity of ING’s corporate business products and the scale of its international network add to the bank’s uniqueness in the Netherlands.
The type of paralegal ING is seeking
ING is looking for smart paralegals who feel at home in an international environment, who use their knowledge and experience to help the business achieve its goals, who devise creative solutions and who are not afraid to take a critical approach. In return, ING offers a fun and inspiring work environment.
At ING, the work of a compliance officer is not restricted to the corporate Compliance department. Instead, there are compliance officers covering every part of ING, including all the business lines, staff departments and each office abroad. ING is committed to conducting all areas of its business properly and with integrity. The compliance officers are there to analyse and advise, guide and inform their colleagues in all areas. Above all, they ensure that the whole organisation is –and remains– fully aware of the importance of ‘keeping to the rules’.
Conducting business properly and with integrity
With the entire financial sector currently under tight scrutiny, compliance is receiving more attention than ever before. It is a dynamic area that is constantly witnessing new developments, requiring lots of flexibility and the ability to adapt quickly. ING has made compliance one of its top priorities, because conducting business with integrity is quite simply crucial to the organisation’s future.
