About the Bank

The Bank of England is the central bank of the United Kingdom. Standing at the centre of the UK's financial system, the Bank exists to ensure monetary stability and to contribute to financial stability. The Bank’s network of Agents across the UK plays a key role in supporting both of those core purposes by gathering and using business intelligence to brief policymakers, and to represent the Bank in the region. Their work contributes directly to the formulation of monetary and financial policy in the UK.

Two vacancies have arisen, one in the Bank's Agency in the East Midlands and one in the Yorkshire & Humber Agency.

About the role

By speaking to businesses and other organisations in their regions, the Agencies assess and report on economic conditions to support the Bank’s monetary and financial stability objectives. Working closely alongside the Agent, you will visit a wide range of contacts, analyse and report on the intelligence gathered to help both the MPC and the FPC make well-informed decisions. You will represent the Bank in the region, including presenting the Bank’s key policy messages and analysis to a range of audiences.

While delivering these key outputs, the Deputy Agent will also support the Agent by: (a) helping manage the Agency team and resources; (b) contributing to exercises aimed at developing and maintaining a contact base that is representative, regularly refreshed and fit for purpose; and (c) contributing to the broader work and development of the Agency network.

You will develop effective working relationships with the Bank’s policymakers. This includes providing intelligence and hosting visits to the regions that, together, help inform their policy decisions.

About you

This role would suit people from a range of backgrounds who are confident in, and have a strong interest in economic topics and business. You will need the ability to:

  • Demonstrate a good understanding of the Bank’s approach to monetary and financial policy and its policy framework more generally – or be able to show you have the ability to gain this understanding.
  • Keep pace with Bank of England policy developments and key data.
  • Establish and develop relationships with board level members of the business community, 3rd sector organisations and other bodies active in the regional economy in order to gain good quality intelligence about conditions and activities in the real economy.
  • Use that intelligence effectively within the Bank to assist policy makers and other colleagues in their understanding of economic conditions, and thus facilitate good decision making.

A full driving licence is required. Management experience would be helpful. Knowledge of the East Midlands / Yorkshire economy and business community would be helpful but is not essential.

The opportunity

As a unique institution, we have a reward package which sets us apart from other organisations. It includes a competitive salary, but also a much wider offering, including a defined benefit pension and comprehensive flexible benefits. We also offer a working environment which fully supports individuals through flexible working, private medical insurance and wellbeing initiatives including an on-site medical and dental unit. This role is open to job shares, flexible and part time working patterns
