About the Role
Leading a team of ten, this is a high profile management position, presenting regularly to the policy committees of the Bank (MPC and FPC), and shaping the Bank’s assessment of the outlook for, and risks to, the economies and financial systems of the US, China, Japan and Emerging Markets. This is an established, high achieving team in the International Directorate that works closely with other divisions within the directorate to develop key strategic global narratives.
As manager of the Global ex-Europe team, you will be front and centre in forming and selling a view on some of the biggest issues the Bank faces, from US monetary policy normalisation to prospects for Chinese financial stability. Combining analysis of both macroeconomics and financial systems, central outlook and tail risks, this job covers a very broad waterfront of potential shocks to UK monetary and financial stability. You will have a team of ten behind you, and you will need to ensure that they have the tools and skills necessary to assess their economies and financial systems, and to convince the MPC, FPC, PRC and the top of the Bank of their view. You will also need to keep a close eye on the UK policy debate to spot where developments abroad can shed light on domestic puzzles.
The successful candidate will also be expected to play an active role in managing ISD, and to work with the other managers in ID to ensure a smooth running and high performing directorate.
Qualifications, Skills & Experience
For this post you will need:
- Strong applied macro and finance skills – ideally with an international component.
- Experience managing a diverse team – the ability to develop and motivate a team with a broad range of skills and experience levels, ensuring that they achieve their potential.
- The ability to think strategically – in terms of forming a view about where different parts of the global macro and financial system are going, knowing when and where putting that view to use will be most effective in helping to achieve monetary and financial stability, and ensuring that the team continues to be in a position to guide policy-makers’ thinking in years to come.
- Strong organisational skills –the ability to prioritise and ensure delivery of high quality analytical work across the team’s very broad waterfront.
- Good interpersonal and communication skills – the job requires not only a credible dialogue with policy makers, the rest of the International Directorate and other parts of the Bank, but also the ability and confidence to represent the Bank externally.
- And a keen interest in the policy debate across the Bank / PRA
About the Bank of England
As a place of work, the Bank feels different from most other organisations. The atmosphere is relaxed but highly professional, research-driven and also very much connected to real events in the economy. While organisations in the private sector are focused primarily on profits, the ultimate objectives for the Bank are always the quality of their thinking and the rigour of their analysis.
That makes for an unusually satisfying place to develop your career. Whichever area of the Bank you join, you will almost certainly be working on high-profile and high-impact projects. The issues you will deal with on a daily basis can be seen in the news headlines, and have implications for everyone in the country. For many of their employees, this sense of contributing to the public good is one of the most rewarding aspects. The environment they offer is extraordinary too. Their historic building is located in the heart of the City, and combines rich tradition with up-to-date technology and facilities. Just as importantly, they have a strong culture of support that exists both within each of our teams and across the organisation as a whole. For more information see: Bank of England Careers
