Your Team

We are looking for up to 15 highly talented recent graduates with a postgraduate degree, preferably a PhD, for the ECB’s Graduate Programme.

You will have different ages, backgrounds and interests and will find intellectual challenges, varied opportunities and a people-centred working culture that gives you a voice and the chance to make an impact – for Europe.

We will give you challenging one-year assignments in two different business areas, matched to your fields of expertise, your interests – which you can indicate during the application process – and our organisational needs. This gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge in new ways. You can find information on our job profiles below, in the “Further information” section.

Your successful completion of the programme will be assessed by the Graduate Programme Committee on the basis of performance reviews and your project paper, which you will prepare and submit before the end of the second year.

The Graduate Programme offers you excellent development opportunities, valuable experience and an insight into the ECB’s tasks and working methods. It could be your starting point for an exciting career at the ECB.

The ECB is an inclusive employer and we strive to reflect the diversity of the population we serve. We encourage you to apply, irrespective of your gender, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability or other characteristics.

Your Role

We will assign you an experienced colleague as a mentor to provide you with support, advice and guidance on participating successfully in the programme. You will also get a tailor-made training programme that includes a number of in-house and external training opportunities. You will be part of a multicultural team that strives for continuous innovation to make a positive impact on the lives of European citizens.

Qualifications, Experience and Skills

• a master’s degree or PhD completed between 1 February 2017 and 31 January 2019; alternatively you may be due to complete a PhD in 2019 (in this case the master’s degree can have been obtained before 1 February 2017) – candidates with a PhD, or who will obtain their PhD in 2019, will have a distinct advantage;
• qualifications in a field of interest to the ECB, e.g. economics, finance, statistics, accounting, financial/commercial/EU law, data science, political science, European studies, international relations, business administration, journalism and communications, psychology, information technology, civil engineering, engineering, mathematics, languages, human resources, physics, chemistry or facility management;
• a general interest in European affairs, central banking, banking supervision and matters of relevance to ECB business areas;
• advanced command of English and an intermediate command of at least one other official language of the EU.

• a minimum of one year’s working experience in the field of data science (this could be programming, data management, big data tools, data visualisation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, data processing)

You engage collaboratively with others. You pursue team goals and learn willingly from other people’s diverse perspectives. You signal any need for change by explaining it and proposing alternative solutions. You analyse complex information effectively and can evaluate different views to arrive at solutions. You know and anticipate stakeholder needs.
