The European Commission's department for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations regularly recruits specialised staff to be deployed on the field. This field staff, comprising both technical assistants (humanitarian experts) and locally recruited national staff, makes up the department's field network. The field network consists of 155 international humanitarian experts and 298 national staff members located in seven regional offices and field offices in over 40 countries.

The main functions of the network are to get the latest humanitarian and disaster information from the ground and support the delivery of assistance to crisis areas. In addition to their main functions, the network also regularly monitors relief efforts undertaken by the Commission's humanitarian partners and helps coordinate joint actions in the field.

In order to become a technical assistant, interested candidates need to apply via an online system as explained in the 'Call for Applications'. Selected experts are then included in a database. Once listed in the database, experts can apply for the vacant posts in the department's field offices. See below the list of the latest vacancies.
