Call for Tender: European bank sector social partners looking for external expertise for second phase EU-funded project on impact of regulation on employment

Monday 25 February 2019

UNI Europa Finance and our European social partners in the banking sector – EBF, ESBG and EACB – have launched an EU-funded follow-up project on ‘The Impact of banking regulation on employment: Analysing best practice at European, national and company level and developing joint approaches through European Social Dialogue’, which will run for 2 years (24 months) from February 2019 to January 2021.

This follow-up project has 3 key objectives: (1) to further analyse the results of the 2016-2018 mapping exercise; (2) to exchange and collect European, national and company level good practice on how Europe’s banking sector reacted to this increasing regulation; and (3) based on these findings, to develop and present a joint European Social Partner approach on how to commonly benefit from regulation whilst mitigating any negative impacts, in order to ensure a sustainable banking sector for the future.

The European Social Partners are subcontracting external expertise to support us in our work on the above project objectives, for the 24-month duration. Specifically, we will require an external consultancy to carry out further research and analysis on the impact of regulation in Europe’s banking sector, assess and bring together best practice examples from the social partners at the European, national and company level in dealing with the impact or regulation and work closely with the project steering group to bring all these areas of research together to draft the final project report and help contribute to the development of the joint European Social Partner approach.
