Wanted: new Latvian financial regulator

The search for a new head of Latvia's financial regulator is underway with the government on July 12 announcing a competition for the post.

The new situation vacant comes after the resignation of Peters Putniņš as chairman of the Financial and Capital Markets Commission, as previously reported by LSM.

According to the official listing for the post, candidates need to fulfill a range of criteria including speaking good English, being a Latvian citizen and having at least five years of experience in the financial and capital market or its supervision or in the field of money laundering and the prevention of financing of terrorism and proliferation - a requirement likely to narrow the field considerably.

The successful candidate will also need to have an "impeccable reputation" but in return she or he will take home a monthly salary of 9,000 euros (before). 

Applications close in one month's time on August 12, so it's time to get that CV in order if you fancy applying.
