Information on ECDC's recruitment procedure

Please note:

  • ECDC values diversity and accepts applications without distinction on the grounds of age, race, political, philosophical or religious conviction, sex or sexual orientation and regardless of disabilities, marital status or family situation.
  • Due to the large volume of applications received, only candidates selected for interviews will be notified. Candidates can check the status of their application in the e-recruitment system.
  • At a later stage, candidates may be requested to supply documentary evidence, in original, in support of the statements made in the application.
  • Should a position be offered, candidates are required to undergo a mandatory medical analysis and physical check-up with our selected medical service.
  • Prior to appointment, the candidate will be required to make a declaration in relation to the interests that might be considered prejudicial to his/her independence. The Director will examine such declarations and take measures if necessary. Similarly, after appointment, the jobholder may be required to make such a declaration and may be asked to divest himself of any interests deemed by ECDC to pose a potential conflict of interest.
  • The standard contract length of posts at ECDC is five years but ECDC also has project posts that have a shorter contract length.

ECDC conducts a structured recruitment process to select candidates that best match the requirements of the vacant post. Candidates may be reimbursed for travel costs related to recruitment.

Detailed information on the recruitment process and rules on travel expenses are described in the internal procedures and candidate guides below.
