The FSB is currently seeking a new Secretary General–one of the lesser known, but critical jobs in global financial regulation. Here are some details from the FSB:
The Financial Stability Board (FSB) has launched a public recruitment process to find a successor to its current Secretary General, Svein Andresen, who will be leaving the position at around the end of 2017.
Positioned at the heart of international financial policymaking, the successful candidate will lead the FSB Secretariat in its mission to maintain global financial stability and prevent future financial crises.
Reporting to the FSB Chair, the successful candidate will support the FSB membership in identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, developing and implementing policy, and fostering collaboration and cooperation within the FSB membership. They will manage a highly effective 30-strong Secretariat, and represent the FSB at G20 meetings and in other international fora.
We seek candidates with deep experience in policymaking at national and international level. The successful candidate will be in a senior position in an international organisation, in the public, private or non-governmental sector and will be expert at influencing and representing at the highest levels. They will be capable of executing international financial sector policymaking, adept at efficiently and effectively organising the work of the FSB and, in conjunction with the Chair, capable of developing a strategy for the organisation as its work evolves.
