Recruitment policy

The EFTA Court has two categories of staff; professional staff and general staff. Staff may be appointed on regular contracts or on shorter, temporary contracts. Employment contracts are normally for a fixed period of three years. Depending on the needs of the EFTA Court, a renewal for three years may be offered, but normally not more than once.


In addition to its staff members, the EFTA Court has a limited need for trainees for a period of two to four months. Persons interested in becoming a trainee may approach or apply to the EFTA Court.


While staff members are normally nationals of one of the three EFTA States party to the EEA Agreement, the Court will also consider other applications, primarily those of nationals of the other States that are party to the EEA Agreement. At present, the staff comprises 7 nationalities.


Salaries, Benefits, Allowances

The EFTA Court offers attractive remuneration packages and benefits. Starting salaries are based upon academic and professional qualifications, as well as the level of the post. The salary scales are set by the ESA/Court Committee.
