Would you like to be part of ensuring that Nordea is being data driven in sanctions compliance? We are now looking for a Data Steward to ensure the data used for sanctions screening is well governed and allows our controls to perform at their best.


At Nordea, we’re committed to being a partner our customers and society can count on. Compliance and integrity go hand in hand. Joining us means you’ll have an impact on how we do banking – today and tomorrow. So bring your ideas, skills and unique background. With us, you’ll be in good company with plenty of opportunities to collaborate, grow and make your mark on something bigger.


About this opportunity


Welcome to the Sanctions Data function within the Sanctions Data & Analytics team. We add value by ensuring that the data for managing sanctions risk is well governed and can be reliably used for sanctions screening and other risk management processes, while also providing insights and analyses to support further improvements to our sanctions capabilities and data usage. As a Data Steward you’ll play a valuable role in ensuring the data used for these important processes is well understood and in the best possible shape.


What you’ll be doing:

  • Identifing and documenting critical data elements relevant to sanctions, following the Nordea standard Data Governance Framework.
  • Defining, implementing and managing data quality measures to secure proactive management of data quality in screening.
  • Mapping and documenting data lineage to ensure control of how the data is flowing through systems.
  • Providing expertise for team members and projects in understanding how to locate and use relevant data to achieve good business outcomes.
  • Interacting closely with colleagues and stakeholders across the bank to achieve improvements to the data, and increase our common understanding of dependencies and collaboration opportunities.


You’ll join a team of data-minded colleagues who leverage the unique skills and knowledge of each team member to increase the collective understanding of a complex data environment. The role is based in any of the Nordic countries or Estonia.


Who you are


Collaboration. Ownership. Passion. Courage. These are the values that guide us in being at our best – and that we imagine you share with us. 


To succeed in this role, we believe that you:

  • Have strong analytical skills and a curious mindset to proactively identify important details in data and turn it into actionable insight.
  • Thrive in a dynamic environment where the only constant is change, learning and adapting to a complex data and IT landscape that connects across most parts of Nordea.
  • Are structured, result-oriented and set a good example for others. You enjoy and have experience of building strong stakeholder relationships to support your work.


Your experience and background:

  • Experience in the Financial or IT/Technology industries and familiarity with common banking industry concepts and processes, experience involving customers or transactions considered a particular advantage.
  • Experience working with SQL and databases, as the role involves writing SQL scripts as a part of the work. At minimum requires willingness and realistic ability to learn or improve skills rapidly.
  • Advanced English spoken and written communication in a very international and diverse team environment.
  • A subject-relevant degree or equivalent work experience.
  • Familiarity with data governance and data concepts such as data quality measurement is a strong advantage.
