Wat verwachten we van jou?

As IFRS Expert within the IFRS Centre of Excellence you will in first instance have a specialized content role. For example, you give advice on the current IFRS standards in response to a planned transaction or in the context of the quarterly closing. In addition you monitor IFRS developments closely and translate these to the specific impact on the KBC Group. The intention is that you will gradually become an expert in specific IFRS material and within KBC become the contact person for all questions and advice related to your area of expertise. As such you will come into contact with various departments and subsidiaries of the entire KBC Group and you will have regular meetings with our auditor.  

Currently a number of new standards are being implemented which will have a major impact on financial institutions such as KBC (e.g. IFRS 9 regarding financial instruments and IFRS 17 regarding insurance contracts). A project structure has already been established for these new standards. Next to that a number of other changes are upcoming like IFRS 16 (lease), for which an impact assessment is to be performed. The purpose of this is to ensure that the entire KBC Group is ready on time for the application of these new standard. As IFRS Expert you will cooperate on the implementation of these changes within KBC. As such close cooperation with and understanding the business is a must. 

Within KBC we have also established an IFRS Community together with the IFRS experts at the various KBC entities in Belgium and abroad. This Community aims to share knowledge and expertise and to create a platform for discussion throughout the KBC Group. You will help shape this Community by organizing IFRS theme days, contributing to the IFRS newsletter, giving training, and so on.
