Hammond starts search for Mark Carney at Bank of England | Business News

The Chancellor is starting the process of finding a new governor of the Bank of England as Mark Carney's extended tenure near its end.

The Treasury said in a statement for the job, which carries a salary of £ 480,000 a year along with a host of perks, would be posted on Wednesday morning.

Mr Carney has been in the role since post-crisis July 2013 and is due to go down on 31 January next year.

His tenure was twice extended to ensure stability ahead of Brexit.

The Canadian Sky News in an interview earlier this month there was "absolutely no" chance to stay beyond the 31 January date, rather than uncertainty over the UK's departure from the EU.

In the job description for the role, the Treasury said it offers "irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disability".

It said they must be ready to commit to an eight-year term.
