Job applicants need to meet several conditions. Apart from qualification, they also need to have experience in the given field and speak foreign languages.

Moreover, the first meeting of the body administered by ELA is scheduled for October.

The agency’s supervisory board will be comprised of the representatives of all EU member states. Slovakia will not run for its chair, but probably for the post of deputy chair, Richter said back in June, as reported by TASR.
