Digital forensicsDo you have what it takes… to fight fraud for the European Union?

The European Union (EU) comprises 28 Member States and serves a population of over half a billion people. It has 24 official languages and an annual budget exceeding €140 billion. The role of the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) is to protect the EU's financial interests by investigating fraud, corruption and other illegal activities; to ensure the professional conduct of the staff of the EU Institutions; and to support the development of EU anti-fraud policies.

OLAF needs highly talented, experienced specialists in the fields of:
• digital forensics (16 positions)
• operational analysis (16 positions)

Interested applicants should have a university-level diploma in a related discipline, or professional training / professional qualifications of an equivalent level relevant for the duties involved that is approved by a recognised body (for example a police college, a customs academy, the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists, the International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners). You should also have at least six years' additional experience as a digital forensics examiner or an operational analyst working in a national or international law enforcement agency, as well as proven IT intelligence skills.

English is the main language used by digital forensics experts and operational analysts working in the area of anti-corruption and/or financial crime in an international context. A good command of English is therefore essential.
