Testimonial by Marie Vander Donckt - Statistician – National and Regional Accounts and Business Cycle


As a student of economics I was soon attracted by the prospect of a career with a national or international institution devoted to the public interest, so I obviously seized the chance to apply to the NBB. I work in the National Accounts Service of the General Statistics Department where I help to compile the real accounts for financial institutions and NPI sectors. The job is very interesting in many ways, and I work with a congenial team of people.

Compiling economic statistics gives me the chance to gain a better insight into their implications. It is very varied work, with numerous projects such as the major challenge which we know that we face when we switch to the new European System of National Accounts around 2014. In the longer term, the Bank offers good career prospects which I hope to be able to make use of: ample training facilities, various specialist fields inside the Bank, and the chance to work abroad for a time in connection with the Bank’s membership of the Eurosystem.
