At BNP Paribas Fortis, the country’s number one bank, employees enjoy continuous career growth in a rewarding and flexible work environment.
Allowing Credit to our Customers is and remains a Key Function of every bank. The way how this will occur in the future will change thoroughly considering the Web and Mobiles evolution we are submitted to. Besides this challenge we keep also looking for efficiency increases in our Credit area.
IT, and to be more precise the IT-Architecture department, will play a key role in all this.

The change and transition starts with you so to speak.

  • You check your proposed  solutions regarding the impact they have on information provision, the organisation as a whole, the processes, infrastructure and security, and of course also regarding the financial aspects.
  • As a result of this you will defend your solution in one or more architecture committees. When approved, or after amendment,  the project team kicks-off  starts the project based on your design. 
  • You will be staying in touch with the project teams, and provide them with clarifications wherever needed. Updating  solution documentation is your second nature.
Highlight your strengths!
