VIVAT is looking for an experienced risk professional for its Model Validation Team!


Medior Modelvalidator


This function provides you with perfect insight into a broad range of activities of the insurer. As model validator you have a central position with close contacts in- and outside the insurer (model developers within ACTIAM, Balance Sheet Management and Risk , 2nd line Risk Management, auditors and regulators etc.).


The Model Validation team contributes to enhance VIVAT’s Model landscape by:

  • setting the standards and frameworks for model risk;
  • assuring that models are reliable, appropriate for intended use and compliant with in- and external regulations;
  • increasing the understanding of a model’s limitations and weaknesses;
  • contributing to the Risk Function holder on assessing model risk (e.g. ORSA).


The scope of validated models is: all relevant models of VIVAT and its subsidiaries, e.g.

  • insurance, market and credit risk models;
  • valuation models for assets and liabilities (e.g. actuarial projection tooling);
  • business and capital steering models.       


As a model validator, your key responsibilities are:

  • analysing risk, value and steering models, understanding their limitations and weaknesses;
  • technical review of risk models, including performing quantitative analyses;
  • delivering high quality validation reports to senior management, DNB and other stakeholders;
  • translating relevant regulation (e.g. Solvency II) into validation standards and policies.



  • You have a MSc or PhD degree in Econometrics, Actuarial, Mathematics, Physics or a related field.
  • You have experience with model building and/or model validation in a financial institution.
  • You are familiar with financial risk management, actuarial tooling or valuation of financial instruments and products;
  • You have Solvency II knowledge;
  • You have programming experience in e.g. SAS, MATLAB, VBA, Prophet or AlgoFM;
  • You have excellent communication, writing & reporting skills in English and Dutch (preferable).


Competences and ambitions:

You dispose of a critical, though constructive mind set. You are accurate and methodical. You are an independent expert, pro-active, have high quality standards and work according to the planning. Furthermore, you are convincing, like to interact with model developers on a professional level and build positive relationships. You are willing to further grow within VIVAT.


What can you expect from us?

You’ll enjoy excellent employment conditions, of course an outstanding salary, a year-end bonus and plenty of room for training and development. We are an informal organisation, with a casual working environment. We have opted for a good balance between work and leisure time (such as the New World of Work). You’ll be given a lot of responsibility by us too. More information about our employment conditions.
