Eurojust employs two different types of staff:

  • Temporary agents classified in two functions groups, Administrators (AD) and Assistants (AST), depending on the nature of the duties involved.
  • Contract agents classified in four functions groups, I, II, III and IV, depending on the nature of the duties involved.

The usual duration of contract is 5 years for a temporary agent and 3 years for a contract agent. Both may be renewed once for another fixed period and if renewed for a second time, the contract will be for an indefinite period. Other durations of contract may be offered depending on the needs of Eurojust.
