Faced with the changing needs and objectives of the country to definitively initiate a sustainable economic recovery, the Banque de France is drafting its roadmap. A roadmap that is under the sign of long-term recruitment. Indeed, this recognized institution plans to recruit significantly new employees within its teams. However, the recruitment process will not be interview-based, as usual.

For its recruitment, the Banque de France relies above all on the skills and working spirit of the candidate profiles. Thus, to join its ranks, candidates will have to pass a competition. The competition then gives access to a wide range of professions to be filled within the Banque de France.

Some examples: Economic and Financial Information Analyst; in charge of business relations; over-indebtedness case manager; public relations officer; Banking Systems and Services Manager; assistant controller; an accounting assistant; assistant economist or statistician…

These different missions allow the institution to have a 360° look and to be a little more part of the evolution of its activity. In addition, the recruitment campaign, which began on November 2, is aimed at young graduates at the Bac+2 and Bac+3 levels. The goal by the end of the year for the Banque de France? Recruit 135 new employees.
