  • an advanced command of English with proven drafting ability;
  • a good working knowledge of at least one other official language of the EU.


You will also bring the ability to communicate effectively with multiple stakeholders, influence others and build relationships, combined with critical and analytical thinking.

Working for ECB Banking Supervision comprises working for short periods of time abroad in the context of regular business travel, training or on-site visits.

Therefore, a strong ability to use other EU working languages for business purposes is an asset.
