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 assessment, the rights and duties of staff members, the working conditions and procedures to be followed in the event of a dispute.
 
Furthermore, a Mediator is in charge of examining complaints referred to him/her and of contributing to finding a friendly settlement to any dispute submitted to him/her. He/She acts as an impartial intermediary between CEB staff and the administration of the Bank.
 
The system of remuneration of the CEB's permanent staff members is structured around:
a basic salary scale
a series of benefits and allowances
a performance bonus

Emoluments of Appointed Officials, Governor and Vice-Governors, range from 21 941 to 28 840 euros per month for 2013.

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 and in the Second Pension Scheme (staff members having taken up duty on or after 01/01/2014). 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.
 
 
Recruitment
 
Who can become a member of the Bank's staff?
 
Any national of one of the Bank's Member States may send in an application. Nationals of countries that have joined since 1994 are particularly encouraged to apply.
Candidates must have a perfect command of one of the two official languages, French and English, and have a very good working knowledge of the other. Knowledge of one or several other European languages is a particular asset.
Within the framework of its rules on equal opportunities, the CEB aims to ensure fair representation of women and men among its staff, per category and per grade. In accordance with these rules, in case of equal merit, preference shall be given to the candidate of the under-represented sex (at the time the Selection Committee makes it recommendation).
 
What type of candidate profile does the CEB look for?
 
The main areas of expertise in which the CEB seeks to recruit include: preparation and monitoring of loan projects; technical advice (sustainable development, education, housing, etc.) and procurement; treasury and funding; economy, but the CEB also recruits in the fields of human resources, auditing, IT, etc.
 
 
How do we recruit?
 
The conditions of employment for the Bank’s permanent staff are for the most part laid down in the CEB’s Staff Regulations. The recruitment policy and its implementation are laid down in Part II and Appendix II of the Staff Regulations.
 
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.

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 one year.

The same posts may also be advertised, either simultaneously or at a later date, in the international press, for example.
 

How to apply?
 
Applications must be submitted via our online recruitment site.
 
Applications may be drawn up in either French or English. Applications submitted in any other language will not be considered.
 

Unsolicited applications

Due to a very large number of applications received, the CEB can only accept applications for advertised vacancies. Unsolicited applications will not be taken into account.

Each year the Bank takes in a number of trainees, for periods ranging from 3 months to a maximum 6 months, within the framework of a course of study in relation with the Bank's activities: essentially finance and economy. Applications must be sent to: candidature@coebank.org
