Influence Financial Regulation in Brussels on Behalf of Treasurers and the Real Economy

The EACT has established a strong reputation in Brussels for the quality of its response to regulatory and legislative initiatives that impact the treasury profession. This work has been and remains particularly important in dealing with the financial regulatory responses to the financial crises. We now plan to strengthen our capability by appointing a Policy Director to work with our existing Permanent Representative in Brussels. We are looking for someone with:

  • significant senior experience in treasury and risk management
  • understanding of the legal and political context in which regulation is developed in both the EU and the wider international arena
  • intellectual ability to deal with complex policy issues
  • enthusiasm for focusing on how these affect treasurers and companies.

We need someone who is a confident and good communicator, able to engage with and influence the thinking of the European Commission, MEPs and Member State representatives. Candidates must also demonstrate interest in and support for the work of national treasury associations. The successful candidate will need to be able to spend significant amounts of time if not actually reside in Brussels. The role, which is remunerated, could be part time if required and might appeal to someone seeking to move towards the semi-retirement whilst remaining substantially involved in challenging work. Fluency (spoken and written) in English is essential as well as in either French or German. A detailed job description is available by clicking here >>

If you would like to be considered for this role please send a short CV and a supporting statement to secretary@eact.eu. If you would like further background information please contact the EACT Chairman, Richard Raeburn, on chairman@eact.eu
