All applications will be assessed against the requirements indicated in this vacancy notice. Candidates who meet these requirements most closely will be contacted by the hiring manager directly for further consideration and assessment.
INTERPOL does not discriminate on any grounds and candidates will be treated under conditions of equality.
A confidentiality vetting inquiry will be carried out on behalf of the Organization prior to confirming any selection. By accepting this offer, you give the Organization expressed consent for completing this inquiry.
If selected, you will be required to produce a certificate of non-criminal records (including spent and unspent sentences pronounced by justice) from your country of nationality and from any other country in which you have resided for more than 12 months in the past five years. If you are considered at a further stage of the selection process (interview) we advise you to familiarize yourself with the procedure for requesting such documentation in the concerned countries so that, if accepted, your arrival to the Organization is not unnecessarily delayed.
