Global Business Continuity & Crisis Management Manager

Location: Netherlands, Amsterdam
Company: ING

The ING Global Center of Expertise BCM & CM is a recently established, small and dedicated team which sits within the Chief Information Security Office (CISO). The objective of the center is to provide oversight and to support local countries by among other things, providing global tooling and facilitating the exchange of good practices. More specifically the center is responsible for (a) standardization of all local BCM and CM practices; (b) providing oversight on quality and performance of local BCM & CM capabilities; (c) supporting senior management with managing global major incidents and crises and (d) taking care of the immediate regulatory reporting process of business disruptive events.

Since the Center of Expertise BCM & CM was only recently established and the ambition level is high, ING is looking for a seasoned BCM & CM manager that is able to further embed the center within the organization. A two year roadmap approved by senior management gives direction to the activities that the center carries out. But there is enough room for your own vision and ideas.
