Up to 70 Central Bank staff members are on secondment at any one time to international bodies, such as the European Central Bank.

The regulator is looking for a relocation specialist to provide assistance to staff taking up or returning from temporary transfers at the institutions, which can also include the European Banking Authority, the European Securities and Markets Authority, the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, as well as those taking up or returning to their own country from a secondment in Dublin.

"The Central Bank of Ireland attaches great importance to both inward and outward secondment and is committed to supporting mobility within the Eurosystem," the bank said in a tender document. "At any time, there can be up to 70 individuals on secondment to the European Central Bank, other national central banks or relevant international institutions."

The figure is roughly equivalent to 4pc of the Central Bank's near 1,800 headcount. The Central Bank said it was also committed to supporting incoming employees.

"In some circumstances, incoming individuals may need to relocate to Ireland from overseas to assume their new role. The Central Bank provides appropriate relocation assistance."
