The Central Bank of The Bahamas is seeking to recruit a Balance of Payments (BOP) Consultant for a period of one (1) year, to develop the necessary frameworks to facilitate the implementation of the International Monetary Fund’s BPM6 reporting methodology for its BOP statistics, and to supervise the development of International Investment Position (IIP) statistics for The Bahamas.

Job Description

The Consultant will work with a small team of BOP compilers under the supervision of the Manager of the Research Department and will be responsible for managing all aspects of the BPM6 and IIP implementation programmes.
