Make of this what you will…
Good old @tnteachertim over on Twitter drew my attention today that there was a job listing on http://www.publicjobs.ie for a vacancy with the Central Bank of Ireland for a “Assistant Production Controller Mint, Central Bank of Ireland”
I had a quick look at it and it’s an interesting job including such tasks as: “supervision of all operations involved in the production, authentication and destruction of Euro Coinage”. It makes one wonder with all the discussion about quantitative Easing or “printing more money” if this is what is anticipated.
My inquisitive nature got the better of me and I decided to have a look at all job vacancies on the site. There were only 79 in total which is not surprising with all the public sector cutbacks and recruitment freezes. What was surprising is that 10% of these were for jobs with the Central Bank of Ireland. I don’t have any overall recruitment statistics but I would hazard a guess that this percentage is relatively high.
Below is a list of the vacancies:
- Head of Credit
- IT Process and administration manager
- Liquidity Policy Manager
- Senior auditor
- Banking Policy Professional
- Deputy Head of General Insurance Supervision
Of course this could also be a sign of staff churn with the Irish Central Bank and could actually be a good thing. As I said above “make of this what you will…”
