Bank of England

KANALCOIN NEWS – The central bank of the United Kingdom, the Bank of England (BoE), has reportedly opened seven new job openings related to the issuance of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). The available vacancies range from solution architect to senior manager.

Reported by Kanalcoin.com from Cointelegraph, the Central Bank of Great Britain, the Bank of England, or BoE, still stated that it was actually still unsure about the future of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).

However, the UK’s highest bank authority is still looking for people to work on the CBDC project which will soon be implemented. At least, there are seven CBDC-related job positions opened by the BoE at this time.

The list of job vacancies recently appeared on the BoE’s official website in the job vacancies section. One of the most interesting positions is stakeholder analyst for Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).

As stated on the BoE’s official website, in addition to stakeholder analysts, the UK-owned central bank and its surroundings are also looking for project analysts, solution architects, technology analysts, senior managers, senior enterprise architects, and a senior CBDC policy analyst.

All vacancies will be oriented to work on the BoE’s CBDC project. The site at the central bank posted a list of jobs they were looking for on Tuesday (27/4/2021) and Wednesday (28/4/2021).

“Like many other central banks, the Bank of England is actively exploring whether they should develop and issue a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC),” the BoE said in a statement on its official website for stakeholder analyst jobs.

“No decision has yet been taken on whether a CBDC is required in the UK or not, but this is an important topic and needs to be understood by the Bank,” the BoE said in a statement.

The post mentions a number of specifics about the job openings, as well as the BoE’s focus on conducting surveys and research related to the issuance of CBDCs in the United Kingdom.

Recent reporting earlier this month indicated that the Royal Treasury, Her Majesty’s Treasury (HMT), and the BoE are jointly working on CBDC-related research by launching a CBDC task force.

CBDC have indeed become a hot topic in the last year or so with central banks acting quickly and in a variety of ways. Several countries that have also discussed CBDC are China, the United States, and Indonesia.
