Faced with the need to develop a pool of referenced experts, ECES has, since its foundation, created a Roster of Electoral Assistance Experts with proven track records in electoral-related fields ready for rapid deployment to implement projects according to EU values and EU procedures.

ECES’ Roster of Electoral Assistance Experts was established based on the accumulation of more than 20 years of knowledge, experience, and professional networks of the ECES founders in different EU institutions and international organisations implementing electoral assistance and election observation.

Although the field of electoral assistance is a niche in the development cooperation context, ECES Roster is very comprehensive and includes CVs of Project Directors, Project Coordinators, Finance and Operations Managers, Procurement experts, and experts specialised in all steps of an electoral process such as legal framework, electoral operations, electoral budgeting, voter registration, delimitation of boundaries, training and capacity development, civic-voter education, transmission of results among others.

ECES has provided support to different electoral stakeholders in the countries where it has operated or has completed projects. One of the most important added values is ECES' capacity to mobilise rapidly highly qualified expertise through its Roster. ECES procedure for the mobilisation of expertise is mostly based on the consultation of this Roster and exchanges with donors and beneficiaries, as well as establishing a Human Resource Plan for each project together with donors and beneficiaries.

  1. In all implemented projects, the biographies of the core team of experts to be mobilised are referred to when the project documents are submitted.
  2. During the implementation, the Roster is used to provide categorised experts matching the expertise needed and detailed ToRs, all of which form a Human Resource Plan.

ECES advertises staff vacancies on its website when new positions are open. If experts and personnel for HQ and projects are not found within the Roster, ECES encourages high-level professionals interested in joining our team to submit a spontaneous application or to apply for an open position.

The database of ECES Experts is regularly updated when announcements are published on the Vacancies page of ECES or ECES’ projects’ websites.

Applicants are kindly requested to send their CV and Letter of Motivation to recruitment@eces.eu , providing details on their past experiences with special emphasis on their work in the electoral support field.
