Job description

The Senior Research Manager will have the following responsibilities:

  • Conduct own research to contribute to an ambitious Bank-wide research agenda, and disseminate research outputs internally to senior stakeholders to inform the Bank’s policy and externally to inform the wider debate, including through presentations at academic conferences and publications in top journals.
  • Support effective operation of the Research Hub by managing its research secondment programme and maintaining an oversight of all the projects.
  • Act as a research adviser by helping to set Bank-wide priority topics, catalysing new research projects in designated priority topic areas, and providing effective feedback on research proposals.
  • Organise world class, high-impact conferences and developing strategic partnerships with external researchers and research institutions.
  • Contribute towards Bank-wide initiatives to strengthen the research function and enhance its impact on policy.

Job requirements

The applicant must have both a proven track record of delivering high-quality, policy-relevant research and managing research projects.  Specifically, we are looking for the following experiences and qualities:

  • Proven track record in publishing own research in world-class journals and influencing policy debate through own research, combined with a strong interest in conducting future research in areas that are relevant to central bank policy.
  • Strong personal and intellectual leadership to help shape the Bank-wide research agenda and to inspire, guide and lead less experienced researchers to deliver high-quality research projects that inform the policy debate and have strong external impact.
  • Excellent interpersonal, team working and stakeholder management skills, with an ability to manage a number of internal and external relationships, work in international teams, and achieve desired outcomes through effective collaboration with others.
  • Intellectual openness, willingness to challenge conventional thinking, creativity and diverse interests, with a strong ability to identify new research fields, make connections between different disciplines and methods, and catalyse and engage with research projects across all topics in central banking, supported by good existing knowledge across a range of central banking topics, including monetary policy, macroprudential policy, microprudential policy and supervision.
