Date: 26 July 2018

On 4th July 2018, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) sought candidates to represent the interests of all types of financial markets stakeholders as members of its Securities Markets Stakeholders Group (SMSG).

The SMSG helps to facilitate consultation between ESMA and its stakeholders on ESMA’s areas of responsibility and provides technical advice on its policy development. This helps to ensure that stakeholders can contribute to the formulation of policy from the beginning of the process.

The successful candidates will take up their roles in January 2019.

Each Member of the SMSG serves for a period of two and a half years and can serve two consecutive terms.

Application process
Relevant documents for the application can be found here.

The applications should be accompanied by a CV, preferably in the Europass format. Candidates are also invited to provide a letter of motivation, clearly stating the reasons behind the application.  

Selection process
The details of the selection process are in the Call for Expression of Interest.

The final decision on the composition of the SMSG is expected to be made by the ESMA Board of Supervisors in November 2018.
