Your team

We are looking for highly qualified and motivated candidates to join ECB Banking Supervision and to contribute to its work as part of the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM). The SSM is the system of banking supervision in Europe. It comprises the ECB and the national supervisory authorities of the participating countries.  

In your role as a Supervision Analyst, you will be part of one of the ECB’s teams working in the areas of horizontal supervision, supervisory strategy and risk, on-site supervision, and governance and operations, which work in close collaboration with bank-specific supervision functions.

The ECB is an inclusive employer and we strive to reflect the diversity of the population we serve. We encourage you to apply, irrespective of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or other characteristics.  


Your role

As a Supervision Analyst, you will be expected to contribute to the implementation, further development and enhancement of banking supervision policies, methodologies and practices through several of the following tasks: 

  • Performing risk-based surveillance, and contributing to off-site and on-site supervision; 
  • Developing, maintaining or up-grading datasets, analytical tools, standards and methodologies;
  • Analysing trends and developments in relatively complex data sets, and performing ex ante and ex post reviews and consistency checks;
  • Conducting analytical and policy work, including horizontal analyses, reviews, presentations and reports, notes and policy proposals for submission to the decision-making bodies. 

The position offers you an excellent opportunity to gain experience working in the SSM while engaging with a number of stakeholders both in Europe and around the world. This role offers you a great opportunity to develop further your banking knowledge and experience and to contribute to the core supervisory tasks, processes and output of the SSM and to be actively involved in the different areas of banking supervision. You will network with experts in the field and will become a catalyst for communication in the SSM. You will be part of a multicultural team that strives for continuous innovation to make a positive impact on banking supervision and the lives of European citizens.

You engage collaboratively with others. You pursue team goals and learn willingly from other people’s diverse perspectives. You signal any need for change by explaining it and proposing alternative solutions. You analyse complex information effectively and can evaluate different views to arrive at solutions. You know and anticipate stakeholder needs.

You are motivated to contribute to the ECB’s mission, to serve the citizens of the EU as a member of a public institution and to work with colleagues from all over Europe.

You are motivated to be part of our team and to use your skills and competencies to achieve the objectives of this position.


Working modalities

Working for European banking supervision can involve spending periods of time abroad for on-site visits, on-site inspections or training. The ECB promotes a diverse working environment in which well-being and a good work-life balance are fostered. Playing a role in European banking supervision also entails collaborating in multinational and multicultural teams and operating in the context of different national frameworks, for which a strong ability to use different EU languages for business purposes is an asset.

We are willing to discuss part-time arrangements.


Further information

Temporary appointments may be extended or made permanent subject to organisational needs and budgetary constraints. This may result in a staff member with a non-convertible fixed-term contract being offered a convertible contract in accordance with the ECB Conditions of Employment.

Some of the contracts will be convertible into permanent contracts after three years subject to individual performance and organisational needs.
