Type of posts

There are four ways to work at Frontex:

  •  temporary staff (also known as temporary agents)
  • contract staff (also known as contract agents)
  • seconded national experts (SNE)
  • trainees

Temporary and contract staff are selected through an open recruitment procedure. An employment contract will be offered for a period of five years, with a probationary period of nine months. The contract may be renewed.

The total remuneration package of all EU staff consists of a basic salary and family and other allowances, where applicable; the package is also influenced by a correction coefficient (for most Frontex posts, this is 68.6% for Poland, to account for the lower cost of living compared to Brussels).
