Careers

Come and join our 1,000 staff in both policing and support services who help us to fight international crime!

We aim to provide a diverse and respectful working environment that attracts, develops and retains talent.

The General Secretariat employs approximately 1,000 staff members from 100 different countries. Staff are based at the main building in Lyon (France), the Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore, or in one of our satellite offices.

Approximately one-quarter of staff are police officers seconded by their national administrations; three-quarters are international civil servants hired under contract directly by the Organization.

Our staff in 2018

We accept applications from nationals of all our member countries to ensure that the Organization remains truly representative. Staff work in our four working languages (Arabic, English, French and Spanish) but a working knowledge of English is required for most posts.

Our staff values are respect, integrity, excellence, teamwork and innovation. The actions and behaviour of all officials should be guided by these values in their daily activities.
