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 in the Supervisory Technology Section you will:
  • shape and advance the digital agenda of the SSM by challenging the status quo and proposing improvements;

  • prepare briefings, speeches and presentations for diverse audiences;
  • engage and collaborate with strategic partners and counterparts in supervisory authorities and other organisations, including start-ups and academic institutions.

The position offers you excellent opportunities to gain experience in the SSM while engaging with stakeholders across Europe and around the world. You will be exposed to cutting-edge developments in supervision and learn about emerging technological trends, collaborating with experts in the field and acting as a catalyst for innovation within 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.
