Taking Stock - Since when was USA a part of Europe?

Job advertisements published in several continental European newspapers on behalf of the European Central Bank have been brought to the attention of Taking Stock. The ECB has recently been seeking accountants to fill existing vacancies in the prestigious organisation. To our astonishment and confusion, ECB ran advertisements in Belgian and German newspapers for the post of chief accountant and suggested that the ideal applicant would be a member of American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Confusingly the ECB’s website states that ‘candidates must be nationals of a member state of the European Union.’ Now, TS’ geography isn’t that hot, but we’re sure the United States of America is not one of the 15 European member states or even part of Europe. Or is it that European accountancy standards are not deemed suitable?
