The European Labour Authority
The European Labour Authority (’the Authority’ or ‘ELA’) is a new Union decentralised body in the area of cross-border labour mobility, currently in its initial start-up phase.
Its aim is to facilitate access for individuals and employers to information on their rights and obligations; support cooperation between EU countries in the cross-border enforcement of relevant Union law, including by facilitating joint inspections; and mediate and facilitate a solution in cases of cross-border disputes between national authorities.
The European Parliament and the Council recently adopted the Regulation establishing the European Labour Authority. The text currently awaits publication in the Official Journal of the EU.
The Authority should reach its full operational capacity by 2024. The European Commission is responsible for the initial set up phase until the Authority is sufficiently staffed and ready
to fulfil its mandate.
1 Depending on the availability of the new offices of the ELA in Bratislava, the successful jobholder may be required to take duties for a limited period of several months in Brussels, hosted at premises of the European Commission.
2 This estimate takes into account the coefficient of correction applicable to Slovakia, currently equal to 78.5% (compared to Brussels). Additional allowances, as well as deductions for the community tax, contributions for medical insurance, pension and unemployment insurance are not included in this estimate.
Further information on the Authority is available on:
The European Commission, on behalf of the ELA, is launching a vacancy notice with a view to
establishing a reserve list of Temporary Agents for the position of Procurement Officer3
How to apply
You must apply through the EU CV Online system6
. Only complete applications registered via EU CV Online before the deadline will be considered. Applications must include a motivation letter and a CV, both submitted in English to be considered.
Please note that this selection procedure is published in parallel with selection procedures for other profiles at the ELA. You are encouraged to apply for the positions(s) that best
suit(s) your profile and experience. To be able to apply via EU CV Online, you must first create an account or sign in to an existing account. If not done already, you must first fill in
the electronic CV. Once the CV is completed, you may choose and apply to the call for expressions of interest of your choice. You are advised to fill out all relevant fields of the
application. All technical questions concerning EU CV Online must be sent through the contact page of EU CV Online.
Before applying, you should carefully check whether you meet all the eligibility criteria.
It is your responsibility to complete your online registration in time. We strongly advise you not to wait until the last few days before applying, since heavy internet traffic or a problem
with the internet connection could lead to your online registration being interrupted before you complete it, thereby obliging you to repeat the whole process. Once the deadline has
passed, you will no longer be able to register.
No supporting documents are required at this stage - these will be required later from candidates invited to interviews/ tests (see section 5.3).
On completion of your online registration, you will receive on screen a registration number, which you must note. Once you receive this number, the registration process is finished. This
will be your reference number in all matters concerning your application. If you do not receive a number, your application has not been registered!
6 EU CV Online is the tool used by the European Commission for recruitment of staff on temporary basis.
An acknowledgement of your application will be sent to the e-mail address indicated in your application. It is your responsibility to verify that you provide the correct e-mail address.

Commission and you will be by post. In this case, you must enclose with your application a certificate attesting your disability, issued by a recognised body. You should also set out on a
separate sheet of paper any special arrangements you think are needed to make it easier for you to take part in the selection.
