The Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) at the European University Institute (EUI) is seeking to recruit a Programme Director who will act as Deputy Director for the Florence School of Banking and Finance (FBF).
The Florence School of Banking and Finance is one of the newest training and policy debate initiatives at the Centre and is a priority for the EUI. The FBF, which started its activities in January 2016, is a European platform that brings together practitioners and academics from the Banking and Finance sector to develop a common culture of regulation and supervision in the European Union. It does so through training and policy dialogue, in close interaction with a network of EU institutions and agencies and with leading academics.
The School’s objectives are: (1) to provide a European forum for independent and critical thought and informed debate by bringing together scholars and the world of practice; (2) to support professionals in keeping up-to-date with European developments in this rapidly evolving field and (3) to provide access to academically robust and praxis-relevant knowledge from a multidisciplinary perspective.
The School’s training courses – which form the bulk of its activities – currently focus on four thematic areas: (1) Statistical and Econometric Methods, (2) Risk Management, (3) Financial Stability and Macroprudential Policy, (4) Bank Regulation, Supervision and Resolution. The courses are multidisciplinary, covering in particular economic and legal aspects. As of today, the FBF has trained more than 1000 people coming from over 40 countries.
The Programme Director (Deputy Director FBF) will be responsible for the overall direction and administration of the training offer of the FBF, the reporting and the dissemination of the training activities. In particular, the successful candidate is expected to shape, design and implement the FBF’s executive training offer (approx. 20 training sessions per year) in its varying formats (residential, in-house and online) with a multidisciplinary approach.
The EUI is an equal opportunities employer and takes into account the importance of balance in gender, geographical and minority representation.
Interested applicants should consult www.eui.eu/vacancies for further particulars.
Deadline for receipt of applications: 16 April 2018.
