Organisation and staff

The Commissioner responsible for the IAS is Frans Timmermans,  First Vice-President, in charge of Better Regulation, Inter-Institutional Relations, the Rule of Law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights.



Our Director General is Philippe Taverne, formerly the Commission's Chief Accountant.

As part of the Commission's commitment to transparency, Directors-General publish information on meetings held with organisations or self-employed individuals.

The IAS is divided into three Directoratesjpg(69 kB) Choose translations of the previous link  .

Within each Directorate, different units have responsibility for specific Commission departments and agencies.


The Internal Audit Service aims to recruit staff who are:

  • qualified to the highest professional standards, or
  • keen to continue their studies towards a professional qualification in auditing.

We also recruit a small number of administrative and secretarial staff.

We welcome applications from all qualified applicants. The same rules apply as for any other jobs with the European Commission.

Recruitment as a permanent EU official is based on a system of open recruitment exams ('competitions'). For more information, visit the European Personnel Selection Office.
