The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova has the honour to invite EU Member States (EU MS) to nominate candidates to fill core seconded posts available within EUBAM. The available posts are the following ones:
- Head of EUBAM Office in Ukraine

The respective job descriptions are here attached. Seconded experts are international experts seconded by the mandated body of the EU MS (i.e. Customs and Border Guard/Police services of the EU MS) to work for EUBAM for a period determined by EUBAM in close cooperation with EU MS.
EUBAM is a European flagship project in the area of border assistance initiated in 2005 at the request of Ukraine and Republic of Moldova. EUBAM’s activities and its success in the border segment between Ukraine and Republic of Moldova are best acknowledged by the repetitive extension of EUBAM mandate and operations for the past 13 years.
In this regard, I would be grateful if you could kindly ensure a wide circulation of the enclosed note and annexes to the attention of national customs and border police/guard and police administrations and other relevant national services in your country.
Applications for seconded posts should be sent, together with detailed Curriculum vitae in English language (see Annex IV – Curriculum vitae template) indicating no more than two preferred job profiles through the relevant national administrations of the EU Member States to the EU Delegation in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and copies to: email@example.com with reference “Application for seconded post in EUBAM”.
Application files for seconded posts shall be received by 15 January 2018 at the latest.
Candidates shall indicate in a cover note what post they are applying for, whether their national administration would accept the secondment and whether they would accept to be considered for a different post within the Mission. Short-listed candidates may expect to be contacted for further information and interview.
The Delegation wishes to thank the EU Member States in advance for their support in this important joint endeavour.
Who we are?
The European Union Border Assistance Mission to Moldova and Ukraine (EUBAM) was launched in 2005. The legal basis for EUBAM is the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the European Commission and the Governments of Moldova and Ukraine on 7 October 2005.
The current Mission’s mandate is valid until 30 November 2020.
EUBAM promotes border control, customs and trade norms and practices that meet European Union standards, and serve the needs of its two partner countries.
What we do?
The Mission works with Moldova and Ukraine to harmonise border control, and customs and trade standards and procedures with those in EU Member States. It helps to improve cross-border cooperation between the border guard and customs agencies and other law enforcement bodies and to facilitate international coordinated cooperation. EUBAM assists Moldova and Ukraine to fulfil the obligations of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), which both countries signed as part of their Association Agreements with the EU. It also contributes to the peaceful settlement of the Transnistrian conflict through confidence building measures and as a monitoring presence at the Transnistrian segment of the Moldova-Ukraine border.
Where we work?
The Republic of Moldova-Ukraine state border is 1,222 km long, consisting of 955 km of “green” (land) border and 267 km of “blue” (river) border.
The Mission is headquartered in Odesa (Ukraine) with two country offices (in Chisinau – the Republic of Moldova and in Odesa – Ukraine) and six field offices in its area of operation – three on the Moldovan side of the common border and three on the Ukrainian side.
There are 67 border crossing points along the Moldovan-Ukrainian border, including 25 at the central (Transnistrian) segment.
The administrative boundary line between the two banks of the Nistru river is 411 km long. Nine customs posts are located along it, within which MDCS representatives perform the customs control duties, supported by MoIA representatives. Six BMA subdivisions, in which foreigners can voluntarily register or de-register, are also located on the boundary line.
