Arrestation illégale d'un membre du personnel par l'Iran


FAO : Director General Director-General INTPA Mr. Koen Doens

Dear Koen :

I hope you are keeping well.

Like many, we learned of the imprisonment of an INTPA staff member in Iran. The HRVP article indicates that Mr Johan Floderus (normally assigned to Kabul) has been illegally detained for over 500 days which is alarming.

This is clearly of great concern to all colleagues and as the CLP HU, we would like to convey our solidarity with this colleague and his family and receive assurances from INTPA , the Commission and the EEAS that all is being done to secure his release as soon as possible.

Any information that can be shared is welcome and we understand the sensitivities around this issue.

We hope for a rapid solution to liberate Mr Floderus.

President CLP HU

EEAS Internal Competitions: launch of first set of competitions on 3 April 2023

(note from DG Di Vita dated 30/03/2023)

Dear colleagues,


As part of the EEAS recruitment strategy announced by the Secretary General on 01 February 2023, the EEAS is organising a series of internal competitions to retain in-house talent and offer career perspectives to our staff.

As a first step, on 3 April 2023, the EEAS will launch the application procedure for three internal competitions covering the following grades: AD 9, AD 10 and AD 12. Please note that, as required by the Staff Regulations, these competitions will be open to AD officials and temporary agents in the AD function group only, subject to eligibility criteria that will be detailed in the Notices of Competitions published on 3 April 2023.

The period of application will run from 3 April until 5 May, 12:00, CET. Late application will not be accepted.

A second set of competitions, open to officials, temporary agents and contract agents, will be launched in the autumn and will cover grades AST-SC2, AST 2 and AD 6. These grades have been selected to allow contract agents to be eligible as per article 82.7 of the Conditions of Employment of Other Servants. More information regarding these competitions will follow in due course.

The number of quotas on the reserve lists have been carefully calculated to match the prospects of the EEAS to replace retiring permanent staff, while also recruiting laureates from EPSO competitions.

News regarding the Notices of Competitions will be posted on the Intranet on Friday 31 March 2023, with the application links, which will be activated on Monday 3 April. A set of Frequently Asked Questions will complement provisions laid out in the Notices of Competition. Furthermore, dedicated functional mailboxes (one per competition) will be available for additional information.

On behalf of the Secretary General and DG RM, I wish all candidates the best of luck!
