Local Employment in U.S. Embassy Tirana

LE Staff are foreign nationals and other locally resident citizens (including U.S. citizens) who are legally eligible to reside and work in the country.

Individuals interested in becoming LE Staff must be legally eligible to reside and work in Albania. This mean having a work permit, residency permit, and other documentation required under the Albanian labor law. Employment is based upon merit, qualifications, and equal opportunity.

Application and Selection Process

Mission’s policy is to post LE Staff vacancies on the embassy website. Each announcement provides a short position description, minimum required qualifications, closing date for application submission, other recruitment terms, conditions and procedures.

Applications that fail to explicitly address all requirements specified in the vacancy announcements will not be considered.

The Embassy Human Resources Office does not/not maintain an applicant database and collects applications when a certain position is open for recruitment and a vacancy announcement is posted. Applications submitted before/after the job announcement dates and/or not specifying the announcement code are not subject to review.

Once the application period is over all documents are reviewed for eligibility and against the minimum qualification requirements announced. The employing office short-lists the most qualified applicants, conducts interviews, and selects the best candidate for the position. Only the interviewed and tested candidates are notified by email of the final status of their application.  Please assume that your application has been unsuccessful if you have not heard from us within six weeks of the closing date.
