Central bank secondments to the BIS Asian Office

Since June 2013, the BIS Representative Office for Asia and the Pacific has offered a secondment programme for central bank members in the Asia-Pacific region to foster closer working relationships with BIS shareholding central banks. The programme is part of the BIS's general secondment programme offered to candidates from member central banks.

Programme details

Eligible candidates should be experts working in a mutual area of interest to the BIS. The secondee may be asked to write a report or contribute to the monitoring of financial markets. 

The programme is flexible in terms of duration, which can be from several weeks to 12 months. We will also consider arrangements in which the secondee continues to work in his or her home institution but occasionally visits the BIS Asian Office as required by the project. 

If the secondee stays in Hong Kong SAR, the expectation is that the employee will continue to receive a salary from their home institution, but the BIS will also provide a monthly allowance, as well as housing accommodation, reimbursement for economy airfare between the home country and Hong Kong, and health and accident insurance.
