Friends –

I hope all is well!

Please see the job ad below (note the tight deadline). I wonder whether
this is of interest to some of your students or others from your networks.

I think this is going to be an exciting job – the Bank is pouring
significant resources into this work, and the group is pretty empowered to
really take this agenda and run with it. I would love to see them recruit
someone top-notch. The one caveat is that they will be looking for someone
quite a bit of work experience.

Happy to talk if you know someone.
