Financial economist to work with monetary policy

Abstract icon Are you keen to work with analysis of financial markets and monetary policy? Then this job in the department of Economics and Monetary Policy may be for you.

The job

Danmarks Nationalbank is looking for a new colleague for a unique position in the section for monetary and macro-financial analysis in the department for Economics and Monetary Policy. Here, you will work with analysing the Danish fixed exchange rate policy, monetary policy, and financial and macro-financial developments.

As part of a team of six working in a field where economic and financial developments frequently change the agenda, your tasks vary and may include:

  • Conducting analyses of money markets, fixed income markets, equity markets and derivatives.

  • Analysing capital flows and financial market participant behaviour to monitor the FX market developments and analysing the implementation of the fixed exchange rate regime.

  • Assessing the transmission of the monetary policy to financial markets and the effect on the broader economy.

  • Following developments within theoretical and applied monetary policy, including technological innovation such as digital currencies.

Many of the above tasks contribute to the decision-making process in respect of our monetary policy and Danmarks Nationalbank’s policy recommendations to the domestic economic policy. A key element in the work of the section is the preparation of the Monetary and Financial Trends analysis published two times per year.

We work closely and informally as a team in an environment that is welcoming to different opinions and backgrounds. We also work in close collaboration with colleagues from other departments and are on a journey to increase the outreach to the financial sector and to peers in other central banks. For example, we host an informal event for external financial economists following the publication of the Monetary and Financial Trends, we have regular dialogues with colleagues from the other Nordic central banks and a history of employees working abroad at, e.g., the European Central Bank as part of their career development.

We are currently only Danish speakers in the section, but are ready to welcome you and switch to English. Over time, you are expected to learn Danish. We have many non-Danish-speaking colleagues in the Economics and Monetary Policy department, and the working language of the department is English.   

Working at the bank
