We are an international organisation promoting global monetary and financial stability and a bank for central banks. We have recently embarked on a new strategy that includes expanding our range of products, widening our investment universe and extending our customer outreach.

Your contribution to our mission You will support us by formulating proposals and recommendations for credit ratings and associated limit structures. You will monitor compliance with credit rules and limits, and authorise temporary limit extensions. You will help develop new financial products and contribute to the specification and testing of IT solutions for measuring credit risk. You will help develop and maintain the general framework for credit analysis, including infrastructure and credit processes, as well as enhancements to the Bank’s internal rating methodology.

Your qualifications and experience You will have a university degree and at least five years’ experience as a credit analyst specialising in non-financial corporate institutions. You will also have excellent written and spoken English and a proven track record in drafting credit recommendations.

What you can expect in return We offer a unique, highly rewarding, international work environment, giving you exposure to a range of state-of-the-art technologies and business areas. Furthermore, Credit Analysis has a presence in our Asian Office, which may offer a future opportunity to work in Hong Kong SAR. You’ll receive a competitive compensation package, including full relocation and health insurance. And because of our status as an international organisation, we are able to hire globally and welcome applications from candidates of all nationalities.

All new staff members are recruited on a fixed-term basis without expectation either of any contract renewal or conversion. The contract may however be extended or converted to an open-ended one at the end of the term, subject to organisational needs and individual performance.
