  • Drawing up well-structured and clearly detailed quality assurance review reports following the conclusion of quality assurance reviews;
  • Pro-actively following up and supporting functions to address any issues identified during the course of such reviews;
  • Supporting and guiding functions to achieve streamlined and effective documentation that is aligned with the Authority’s Policies and Procedures Governance Framework;
  • Working with other support functions and the supervisory functions to enable the implementation and launch of new supervisory cycle management systems;
  • Supporting functions to prepare for ESA Peer Reviews, where required;
  • Collaborating with, and / or managing outreach to, external stakeholders, including local and foreign Competent Authorities and European Supervisory Authorities;
