We design, implement and operate IT security solutions and carry out information security governance tasks.

We are currently working on supporting the organisation in the adoption of cloud solutions. 

In your role as a trainee in one of our IT security teams, you will help to protect the IT assets of the ECB and the European System of Central Banks. This will involve working closely with stakeholders in the ECB’s Directorate General Information Systems, Directorate General Market Infrastructure and Payments, and other business areas, as well as with the EU national central banks. 

The ECB is an inclusive employer and we strive to reflect the diversity of the population we serve. We encourage you to apply irrespective of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or other characteristics.

Your role

As a trainee in the Digital Security Services Division, you will:

  • support the second-line activities of TARGET Services by reviewing (cyber) threats and developing threat scenarios, in particular assessing information security controls and the cyber resilience status of the Eurosystem’s market infrastructure, such as T2, TIPS and T2S.

In both divisions, you will:

  • work within a team under the guidance of a mentor;
  • establish and maintain relationships within and outside your team to expand your knowledge and skills;
  • participate in horizontal team activities;
  • contribute to tasks by bringing your ideas and taking initiative.

The position offers you excellent opportunities to apply state-of-the-art concepts and methods to protect information assets and gain experience across a range of information security topics. You will be part of a multicultural team that strives for continuous innovation to make a positive impact on the lives of European citizens.

Qualifications, experience and skills


  • a bachelor’s degree or higher in the field of computer science, IT engineering, mathematics or another relevant field;
  • good IT and analytical skills;
  • familiarity with one or more information security or cyber resilience concepts, such as IT risk management, identity and access management, network security, threat intelligence, security assessment and vulnerability management;
  • a good knowledge of the Microsoft Office package;
  • an advanced (C1) command of English and an intermediate (B1) command of at least one other official language of the EU, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

  • programming or scripting skills relevant to security engineering or data analysis;
  • a sound understanding of cloud computing and relevant technologies;
  • knowledge of operational risk management frameworks (only for the traineeship in the Market Infrastructure Support Division);

You are curious and eager to learn, and want to further develop your ability to analyse complex information. You are keen to collaborate with others, pursue team goals and learn from other people’s diverse perspectives. You strive to know and anticipate stakeholder needs, and will signal any need for change and propose alternative solutions.

You are motivated to contribute to the ECB’s mission, to serve the citizens of the EU as a member of a public institution and to work with colleagues from all over Europe. You are keen to be part of our team and to use your skills and competencies to achieve the aims of this position.
