Applicants are strongly advised not to wait until the last day to submit their applications since heavy internet traffic or a fault with the internet connection could lead to difficulties in submission.

The ETF cannot be held responsible for any delay due to such difficulties.

Applications sent by fax, email or ordinary mail will not be considered.

After successfully submitting your application, a confirmation message will appear on your screen. You will also receive an automatically generated email as an acknowledgement of receipt, sent to the email address that you provided in the form. All future communications will be sent to the same email address.

We regret that due to the volume of applications, only applicants short-listed for interview will be contacted further.

Please note that a selection process may take up to three months to be completed and no information will be released during this period.

Once a selection process has been completed, its status will be displayed on the job vacancies page.
