Human resources policy
The conditions of employment of the Bank's permanent staff members are, for the most part, laid down in the CEB's Staff Regulations. In particular, these define the provisions for staff appointment and evaluation, the rights and duties of staff members, the working conditions and procedures to be followed in the event of a dispute.
Furthermore, an Ombudsperson/Mediator is in charge of informal conflict resolution by seeking friendly settlements to the disputes referred to him/her. He/She acts as an impartial intermediary between CEB agents and the administration of the Bank.
The system of remuneration of the CEB's permanent staff members is structured around:
Emoluments of Appointed Officials, Governor and Vice-Governors, range from 21 447 to 28 192 euros per month for 2011.
The post-employment benefits the Bank offers its permanent staff members are, for the most part, laid down in the CEB's Pension Scheme Rules. In particular, these set forth the conditions that must be met in order to be entitled to a pension and the methods for calculating the amount of benefit.

How do we recruit?
Vacancies for permanent posts open to external recruitment are published in official vacancy notices containing a description of the post and the qualifications and experience required of candidates.
A shortlist of candidates is drawn up on the basis of their qualifications, skills and other recruitment prerequisites.
Shortlisted candidates are then invited to come for one or several interviews. Certain expenses are covered by the Bank.
Candidates called for interviews may, in certain cases, be required to take tests (a language test for secretarial positions, for example).
Candidates to whom no immediate job proposal is made may be put on a reserve list, valid for two years.
The same posts may also be advertised, either simultaneously or at a later date, in the international press, for example.
Unsolicited application are also examined after reception of a letter and a CV, in French or in English.
As the Directorate for Human Development & Internal Services already receives a high number of unsolicited applications, please note that no form of acknowledgement will be sent. If your experience meets our needs, the Directorate for Human Development & Internal Services will be contacting you within the next two months. Should this not be the case, your file will be kept for a period of two years.Traineeships
Each year the Bank takes in a number of trainees, for a maximum period of 6 months, within the framework of a course of study in relation with the Bank's activities: essentially finance and economy.
