Description de la fonction

Belfius Bank is looking for someone to join its Market Validation team. This is a newly created position that comes into effect in 2022 to supplement a team that already has three members.

The team has the responsibility of checking the quality of the mathematical models developed by the dealing room to value the products it handles and to manage the risks involved.

Guaranteeing this quality is essential for the bank, given the financial stakes linked to market activities: even a small error can cause losses running into millions of euros.
“Market” models are very complex. Mastering them requires highly developed mathematical skills, including stochastic calculus and advanced numerical methods. A validator also needs to understand the various markets on which the dealing room is active (rates, inflation, shares, forex, etc.), as well as the products being traded (swaps, futures, options, etc.) and to keep abreast of regular developments in modelling techniques. Finally, programming skills are required so that the models proposed can be replicated and tested.

Validation provides the ideal environment for developing and extending “market” modelling skills and knowledge. The technical level required is the same as that required for developing and the work provides time for reflection: you have to be able to fully understand the strengths and weaknesses of the models proposed and to compare them with possible alternatives. 

To fill this position, the bank is looking for a junior or moderately experienced member of staff. Previous experience (2 or 3 years) in the field of “market” modelling would be an advantage but is not totally essential provided the candidate is able to show that his or her background and personal capabilities will enable him or her to rapidly acquire the skills needed. The same applies to the programming languages involved: knowledge of C++, R or Python would be a plus, but again this is not a deal-breaker if the candidate is experienced in other languages.

The person we are looking for must also display an ability to become part of the Market Validation team and, more broadly, of the Validation department, where operations are characterised by:
  • high standards, both technically and in terms of personal commitment;
  • an organisation based on trust that encourages autonomy and initiative;
  • an interest for new ideas;
  • a collaborative mindset;
  • particular attention paid to the quality of human relationships.
In practical terms, our new validator will be required to:
  • Validate each model put forward. This involves:
    • examining the proposed methodology;
    • ensuring that the model is in line with intended purposes and complies with regulatory requirements;
    • analysing its strengths and weaknesses;
    • verifying its implementation;
    • giving an opinion as to its acceptability and proposing ways of making improvements;
    • interacting with the various stakeholders (developers and market risk teams) to obtain the required information, then sharing with them the conclusions;
    • documenting his or her work and conclusions, as well as presenting them to the management.
  • Contribute to the thought process about the organisation and optimisation of the development and validation processes.


  • Master’s degree in engineering, mathematics, actuarial science or physics. A PhD is an advantage.
  • Previous experience with modelling or validation is an asset.
  • Good knowledge of English (written and spoken) is essential. Knowledge of French or Dutch is an asset.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills.
  • The ability to communicate simply and concisely on complex subjects.
  • Mastery of one or more programming languages. Experience with C++, R or Python is a plus.
  • Constructive, team spirit but able to work autonomously, critical mindset.
