We are looking for an experienced Data and Information Governance Officer to help enhance the organisation-wide development, implementation and coordination of data and information governance related policies, procedures, initiatives and activities as part of the Corporate Governance and Internal Policies division within the Secretary General’s department.
The Corporate Governance & Internal Policies division leads a wide range of governance-related functions across the ESM, including the ESM internal control framework, the ESM data governance framework, and the continuous development of the organisation’s information management policies and practices (e.g. confidentiality marking of documents, records management, and archiving). The selected candidate will report directly to the Head of Corporate Governance and Internal Policies.
The European Stability Mechanism (“ESM”) is the permanent crisis resolution mechanism for euro area countries. It provides financial assistance to Members facing financing difficulties. European leaders have agreed to an expanded mandate for the ESM, which it will implement in the years ahead. The ESM will have a stronger role in the analysis of financial stability risks and design of policy measures in programmes, jointly with the European Commission; it will provide the Single Resolution Board with a financial backstop to support effective and orderly resolution of banks. In the context of the current Covid-19 crisis, the ESM has established a precautionary credit line as one important element in the joint European response to the pandemic.
The ESM is a unique place to work with around 210 individuals from around the world committed to making a difference to the future of the euro area. It recruits talented professionals of any nationality from both the private and public sector.
Contract duration: two- to three-year fixed-term contract, with possibility of extension
