Recruitment: European Border and Coast Guard Standing Corps
In mid-May 2020, the first 280 selected candidates were offered jobs by Frontex to form the EU’s first uniformed law enforcement service. This newly established European Border and Coast Guard standing corps will consist of Frontex border guards and national officers from EU Member States and Schengen-associated countries. It will carry out border control and migration management tasks in order to assist EU Member States, e.g., identity and document checks, border surveillance, and the return of persons illegally staying in the EU. The newly recruited officers will begin their jobs in June 2020 with an online training programme followed by a physical training programme later this year.
