CEPOL offers challenging appointments in a stimulating multi-cultural workplace. As an international organisation focused on developing the network, staff members engage in current, meaningful issues of security and development. They are personally committed to the mission of the Agency, and their dedication is reflected in the continuing communication and networking among police in Member States and beyond.
The paramount consideration in the recruitment and employment of staff is to secure employees of the highest standards of efficiency, technical competence and integrity. The Agency is a multi-national environment, and prospective staff must be tolerant and able to cope with cultural differences and different approaches to problem-solving and decision-making. Besides having well-balanced personalities and good communication skills, they should enjoy cultural diversity. Prior experience in a cross-cultural work environment is an asset.
