A list of all available positions and their current status is available on our ERA (Electronic Recruitment Application) site.

All applications must be submitted through ERA for consideration. 

We recommend using ERA with Google Chrome. The site is available in English, but you can use Google Translate if needed.

In order to guide you through the process of creating an account in this new system and applying to the vacancies you are interested in successfully, we include a video with the steps to follow, as well as guidelines with information about every step of the process. This information can be found on the right side of this page.

For more information, once in ERA, please click the name of the vacancy announcement you are interested in and review all the information about it, such as duties, qualifications, and requirements.

If you are selected for tests and/or interviews, you will receive an e-mail from ERA. Please make sure you enter your e-mail address correctly, and remember to check your spam folder (some notifications may go there). The Embassy receives a large number of applications, so it cannot confirm it has received each and every one of them.
