Traineeship in the field of macroprudential policy and financial stability

We are looking for trainees who want to become part of a multicultural team that strives for continuous innovation to make a positive impact in the life of European citizens through its contributions in the fields of macroprudential policy and financial stability. You will be part of the Directorate General Macroprudential Policy and Financial Stability (DG/MF). Our Directorate has approximately 100 staff members providing analyses and policy advice on issues relating to macroprudential policies, financial stability, financial regulation, and financial stability arrangements. In particular, we are working on identifying and measuring systemic risks, assessing the impact of regulations and macroprudential measures, and responding to the challenges facing the banking and non-banking sectors. In the area of financial stability, we analyse developments in the banking sector and the broader financial system in the euro area and the European Union (EU) from a systemic risk perspective. In the areas of financial regulation and financial stability arrangements, we monitor developments and analyse relevant policy issues from a financial stability and financial integration perspective. In relation to macroprudential policies, we are responsible for preparing European Central Bank (ECB) macroprudential policy decisions and liaising with ECB Banking Supervision and the ECB’s decision-making bodies, as well as with the relevant national and international authorities. To this end, we also provide information and background studies that support and inform the corresponding policy processes. We also support the activities of the European Systemic Risk Board and contribute to policy discussions at the European and international levels. To further enhance the diversity of our team, we particularly encourage applications from female candidates.

As a trainee you will:

participate actively in the general work of one of the DG/MF divisions; this may include: (i) preparing data for regular internal and external publications, such as the Financial Stability Review and the Macroprudential Report; and (ii) helping to prepare presentations for management and senior management;
contribute, through data collection and research assistance (including code programming), to specific analytical projects - such as the development of tools for macroprudential policy analysis and systemic risk identification - by (for example) performing network analysis, financial econometrics modelling and agent-based modelling, and carrying out impact assessments of financial regulation and macroprudential policies;
contribute to the maintenance, updating and further development of databases for monitoring macroprudential policy actions and financial and real sector developments;
contribute to the development of user visualisation tools by programming efficient data processing and facilitating user access to complex datasets;
develop models and tools for assessing the impact of systemic risks on the financial sector and the macroeconomy, using macro and micro data.

As a trainee in DG/MF you will discover the business area through different tasks and projects that will support you in your transition from student to successful professional. You will be assigned your own supervisor and have the opportunity to work alongside committed and qualified colleagues and leaders in the field of financial stability. You will be able to develop your potential and quickly have a real impact on the work we do. As a trainee you will have access to the ECB’s library, as well as computing, programming and statistical resources.

The recruitment process for this position may include a telephone or a Skype interview.
