Money is obviously a big factor for UK and Ireland but the main reason is the second language and that its just a big block for UK and Irish potential applicants to have to go and acquire another language at B2 CEFL level in basically a year starting from scratch.

The Epso eligibility criteria will have to change as it not even really clear what will happen with the border of Northern Ireland and the republic which is still a border of Europe.

Many people in the Police sector and Military dont speak a second language to the level of B2. To my knowledge anyways but sure I could be wrong.

That is not surprising though. I'm pretty sure there have been A LOT more applicants from Romania and Spain than there has been from the UK. The main reason being (in my opinion and based on my information) that the Frontex salary and other benefits just aren't that inviting for the people from more developed EU countries.
The simplest and most logical explanation would be that the Romanians and the Spanish were just better than other applicants, no offence intended for other nationalities

Well i don't know.I have never been paid by Frontex before.But i believe that this might be a classified information.And i think that the total amount depends on whether you are on a mission or not.

Thanks for sharing 5200.
In fact, Wuga, European Agencies, when they are in the recruitment period, should try to achieve a staff as homogeneous as possible in reference to the nationalities of the selected candidates (this is not a guideline, but rather a guide of good conduct for the recruiting agencies).

I am surprised that there are only two nationalities for what I am saying in the paragraph above, but at the same time I am not surprised because the economic conditions should not be equally economic for the candidates of each country, and something that can serve as a guide is the correction coefficient that is applied to European officials according to the country where they work, that is:


CORRECTION COEFFICIENT

As you can see, the coefficients are lower in Bulgaria and Romania, which means that the purchasing power and the cost of living there is much lower than in the other member countries, so for them this job opportunity is much more interesting than for a national from the UK, Finland, France, Denmark. What do you think?

Perhaps, in order to make the job offer ATTRACTIVE and achieve a greater European diaspora, the correction coefficients should not be applied to the economy of the destination country, but to the economy of each candidate's country of origin (although this would generate enormous salary differences and a very good work environment)

No leave days would be allowed during the 4 months deployment. That being said you would be allowed to visit your home country twice per year. I thought this was interesting to know.
Petawas, then;
What happens after those six months?
Will the rotation principle, established in the job offer, start to be applied at that time?

I don't remember well if it was on Finkedin, facebook or Twitter, but in the comments that were generated after an Fx post, a British guy asked the Agency if he, in his situation and anticipating the approaching BREXIT, could run for office and be eligible.
Frontex replied personally confirming that YES he could run, as nothing changed with respect to British nationals in relation to BREXIT.

Simply note that the correction coefficient is no longer 68.6, as it has been updated to 71.1

Does anyone know what is the difference between the two steps regarding the money?Why is the step 2 better paid? Does the years of duty matter or what?

They have explained that you will be deployed for a period of four consecutive months (no pause between) at a given place, after that you will be positioned at Warsaw for two months, and again will be deployed for a new period of four months at a different place (thus the rotation principle aplies) and again two more months in Poland, etc... The have also mentioned that you won't be deployed at your home country...

That's why I didn't say they're not developed. I used the terms "more developed" and "less developed". Obviously I was referring to the country's economy.
