The Bank for International Settlements is an international organisation which fosters international monetary and financial cooperation via wide-ranging banking, economic research and policy coordination activities.

The BIS seeks to appoint a Head of Credit Analysis. In this key position, and reporting directly to the Head of Risk Management, you will be responsible for maintaining the exceptional credit quality of the Bank's $400 billion balance sheet, and for developing the necessary risk framework and policies for its international banking business.

Join us, and contribute to the Bank's overall success as a core member of the senior risk management team. Leading a 10-strong team of credit risk professionals, you will act as the reference point on all credit risk-related matters for the BIS's Banking and Finance Departments, as well as the Legal Service and Management. In addition, you will maintain relationships with the Bank's counterparties, rating agencies, and risk management peers in central banks, international organisations and commercial institutions.

We would like to meet candidates with at least 10 years of experience in a relevant role, combined with a quantitative background and an advanced degree in an appropriate discipline. You will have broad knowledge of financial risk management and measurement. Your written and spoken English is excellent; fluency in another major language would be a further asset.

This is your opportunity to work at the hub for central bank cooperation. We offer competitive conditions of employment and the chance to work in an international environment together with colleagues from more than 60 countries.

All new staff members are recruited on a fixed-term basis (in this instance, 3 years) without expectation either of any contract renewal or conversion. The contract may however be extended or converted to an open-ended one at the end of the term, subject to organisational needs and individual performance. The BIS is fully committed to equal opportunity employment and strives for diversity among its staff.
