Default Frontex Border Guard

Hey all,

So I thought I create this thread so everyone who has applied and going for the Border Guard position can come and speak to other people going through the process. Here we can hopefully answer each other's questions, encourage each other as we are training to get fit and share updates as we go through the process so everyone can stay up to date. I am 37 years old and served with the Metropolitan Police as a police officer in London for over 10 years and currently on a career break and residing in Greece.

Good luck to all,
G

Does anyone know if, besides the salary that will be multiplied by 0,68 because of the lower cost of living in Poland, there is also a "per diem"? Or is this dependant on where you will be sent?

Hi. I dont think there is a per diem. But are you telling that the value thats on the grid as net still has to be multiplied by 0.68? I thought it was payable salary as they say “(after all deductions...)

The selection notice says the following:
The remuneration is expressed in EUR, after the compulsory deductions set out in the Staff Regulations or in any implementing regulations is weighted by the correction coefficient for the place of employment which is Poland (currently 68.6).

Meaning, I suppose, the remuneration is 68% of the amount quoted in the salary grid...
Or would that only be applicable to other allowances like household payments etc..? This is not really clear, since the sentence DOES say: "after the compulsary deductions the remuneration is weighted by the correction coefficient". And the deductions only apply to the salary, in my opinion. For other allowances there are no deductions.

But maybe you are right, the salary in the grid might already have been weighted by the correction coefficient. I hope so.
