Who We Are

Our agency

The SRB is the central resolution authority of the European Banking Union. Our role is to protect the public interest and act as a safety net to ensure that the price to pay when a bank fails does not fall first on the taxpayer.

We are a dynamic EU agency which was established in early 2015. The SRB currently has just over 300 staff, but forecasts a staff of 400 by 2021.

Working at the SRB gives you a unique opportunity to take part in guiding resolution policy and resolving banks in Europe. We seek high-calibre candidates who possess the highest levels of integrity, team spirit and motivation to work for the European project. We employ professionals of all ages, backgrounds and disciplines with expertise not only in banking resolution, but also in human resources, communications, legal, ICT and other fields.

What we value

At the SRB, we believe diversity creates excellence – more diverse staff members mean a wider range of opinions, leading to better and more robust teams.

We aspire to be an organisation in which diversity is welcomed and appreciated. Enabling diversity is vital to our institution to deliver the best possible outcome for our staff and for the Banking Union. The facets of diversity include – but are not limited to – gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, age, cultural background and disability.

The SRB supports our colleagues with disabilities to ensure that their work-related needs are accommodated to the best extent possible, and also provides help to disabled job applicants during the recruitment process.
