The European Central Bank has launched a new traineeship campaign in Banking Supervision: https://talent.ecb.europa.eu/careers/JobDetail/Traineeships-in-banking-supervision/3287
Traineeships in Banking Supervision
You will be joining one of the following three Directorates General (DGs):
- Systemic and International Banks;
- Universal and Diversified Institutions;
- Specialised Institutions & LSIs.
Within ECB Banking Supervision these DGs are responsible for the ongoing supervision of significant institutions (SIs) and for overseeing the supervision of less significant institutions (LSIs).
As a trainee you will be part of a dynamic international team of experts in one of the areas below.
- Direct supervision of SIs as part of a Joint Supervisory Team (JST), composed of members from the ECB and the relevant national competent authority (NCA). The JSTs carry out the annual Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP) as well as many other supervisory tasks.
- Indirect supervision of LSIs as part of a country desk, also dealing with crisis cases.
- Horizontal banking supervision projects with the involvement of the DGs above.
As a trainee you will have the opportunity to:
- analyse financial accounts and monitor market perceptions of supervised banks;
- analyse the legal and regulatory frameworks for financial institutions in various jurisdictions;
- assist with collecting and analysing data and generating tables, charts and reports;
- work independently, under the guidance of a mentor, on projects relating to the implementation of supervisory practices and standards.
These traineeships offer a unique opportunity for anyone wanting to start a career in banking supervision, finance, accounting and related areas. You will be working in a challenging and inspiring environment together with international experts in the field of banking supervision. You will be part of a multicultural team that strives for continuous innovation to make a positive impact on the lives of European citizens. Your assigned mentor will help you develop your technical skills and navigate the multicultural setting. Training courses, workshops and conferences will enable you to acquire state of the art knowledge in economics, finance and banking.
