OrganisationRoyal Philips N.V.
Salary / RateEuro 70.000 - 85.000 + bonus


Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands
is a diversified Health and Well-being company,
focused on improving people’s lives through

lifestyle and lighting, Philips integrates
technologies and design into people-centric solutions,
based on fundamental customer insights and the
brand promise of “sense and simplicity”.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, Philips employs
approximately 133,000 employees in more than 60
countries worldwide. With sales of Euro 27 billion
in 2007, the company is a market leader in cardiac

As the Head of Risk Consulting you provide
functional guidance to the Sectors and
Businesses with respect to identifying possible
FX related risks and providing sophisticated
FX related risk mitigation advise.
You will be helping implement BoM decisions,
measure Philips' performance, set company-wide
standards and drive corporate initiatives. But in
every case, your activities will touch those of
colleagues throughout Philips, as well as customers
and stakeholders outside.

The Head of Risk Consulting reports directly
to the Global Head of Risk Management and is
a strong sparring partner to her in many
day-to-day issues. Since the department Risk
Management is a fairly new department we seek
to find a highly pro-active Head of Risk Consulting
that is able to work in an independent fashion and
help further develop the growth of the department.

You will liaise with people high up in Philips'
hierarchy but are always responsible for the best
solution for the Philips Group as a whole, superseding
the various perhaps conflicting Sector interests.
This is a delicate and not always straightforward
position that requires strong communication and
influencing skills, besides the obvious
technical knowledge.
