„Eesti Pank is a good place to develop as a specialist“

„A good thing about working at Eesti Pank is that you are always dealing with current topics and the latest economic figures. This means you can see better how you can contribute yourself and what areas should be researched. A big plus is that the work leads to contacts with economic researchers in other countries in the European Union. The international network means we can study and learn better and work with people from other countries in our research.“

„Eesti Pank cares about each and every employee“

„Eesti Pank is a state institution, but there is a more academic atmosphere here than in many other state institutions. I have worked as the assistant for three Governors of Eesti Pank and during that time my work has changed constantly and offered new challenges. There is an exciting contradiction within central banking between being involved in changes while remaining a conservative institution. Working conditions in Eesti Pank are good and everybody here is cared for. Here you can work with real professionals in your field.“

„I find the variety of topics covered at Eesti Pank fascinating“

„I am part of the team that monitors and analyses political events that have a major impact on the Estonian and euro area economies. The variety of topics in Eesti Pank is amazing, and we analyse, write and present many different things. Hot topics around the world are always crossing our desks, and there are people in Eesti Pank to discuss those topics with, and who we can ask for advice if we need it. Such an environment is inspiring and encourages development.“

„Eesti Pank offers excellent training opportunities for young specialists starting out in their career“

„My job is to analyse the Estonian financial sector, and this analysis is used in setting macroprudential policy. Working at Eesti Pank you feel you are dealing with subjects that are important and full of responsibility. The stable operation of the financial system plays an important role in all our lives. Unlike in typical large hierarchical organisations, is very easy at Eesti Pank to speak to specialists of any level. Eesti Pank offers excellent training opportunities for young specialists starting out in their career. This helps them to become real experts in their field.“

„My work is great because I can see how the result of it is that my own friends and other Estonians in their everyday life start to use new and better ways of transferring money that work even all the way to the other side of Europe“

„It is my job to make sure that consumers and companies can use payment solutions that work well for transferring money, paying in shops, and shopping online. In my work at Eesti Pank I like the flexibility and the responsibility that it has been entrusted to me. It does not matter where I do my work, whether it is at home, in Frankfurt, at the airport or on the plane. I like being constantly able to develop further, for example you might spend some months on secondment in an international organisation, knowing that when you return you can use the new experience in your old job. This gives a feeling of security and helps you to become a real professional in your field.“

„Eesti Pank is a family-friendly employer, where work and private life are kept in balance“

„Monetary policy and analysis at the central bank are not possible without good quality statistics. It is my job to produce statistics on credit institutions, manage the data quality, and develop the methodology. Statistics from Eesti Pank are widely used by central bank analysts and monetary policymakers, and also by students, economics researchers, domestic and international organisations, and corporate analysts.

I like my work because it allows me to develop and become better, and the work is interesting and responsible. As well as dealing with numbers, I also have to communicate a lot with other people in my field in Estonia and abroad. It is important for me that Eesti Pank supports its staff in having a healthy and sporty lifestyle and in shared activities, in which family members can also be involved where possible.“

„It is fun to work here. Eesti Pank is no ordinary working place, as each specialist has their own unique profile.“

My job is economic research, which is used to set the positions and policy of the central bank on issues of the economy and monetary policy. Economic research is exciting because you never know where it is going to lead you.

I remember that when I came to Eesti Pank, it was one of the few places in Tallinn where people walking in the corridor held doors open for people coming up behind them. This care, politeness and attention has always been a part of Eesti Pank. Eesti Pank is an organisation of specialists, and its work is defined very much by the expert knowledge of the staff.“

„It is good that at Eesti Pank you never have to just hang around, and I can always feel that I am useful.“

„My job is to analyse the payment behaviour of people and how the use of cash in society changes, and from this I can plan the cash stocks for Eesti Pank so that we can issue the right amounts of cash into circulation.

I came to Eesti Pank looking for new professional challenges, and that has worked very well because there are many and very different tasks to be done here. Eesti Pank has a professional team and an open working environment, where it is easy to get in touch with any other member of staff and talk to them.“

„Everybody who works at Eesti Pank is valuable and is valued.“

„My job is to help draw up the Eesti Pank plans and budget, and later to analyse the data and compile the information needed for management decisions. After 10 years at Eesti Pank I still find it exciting and I have managed to steer what I do in my job. As an employee I feel that my opinion counts and is listened to. This is a very good feeling and makes me happy to come to work.“

“I believe my job is certainly one of the most exciting in Eesti Pank”.

“My job is to manage and invest the Eesti Pank reserves. That needs to be done so that the financial independence of the central bank from the government can be guaranteed and we can carry out monetary policy. For me this means monitoring all the financial markets and what is happening in them. The goal is to invest the Eesti Pank reserve in the best way possible to make sure there is enough liquidity and constancy and that we can also earn income.

It is my work that has kept me at Eesti Pank. Financial markets are full of changes and there is always something happening there. Although Eesti Pank as a central bank takes quite a conservative approach to financial markets, I like it that portfolio managers still have a relatively large amount of room to follow their personal vision. I also like how that part of the work is fairly quantitative, meaning it can be measured in money terms and I can directly make my own small contribution to the national budget. Eesti Pank is an employer that is obviously stable, so whether you keep your job here depends on you yourself and not on winds blowing through the economy”.
