The Special Tribunal for Lebanon has now fully transitioned to the new Electronic Recruitment System (eRecruitment) launched on 20 June 2012.
The complete list of vacancies may be viewed down below.
The new eRecruitment system requires the applicant to complete the form online and to submit it likewise via the eRecruitment system where no hardcopy applications or applications received via e-mail will be accepted. More detailed instructions are also available through the menu on the left.
The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) offers a broad range of work opportunities in the field of criminal law, international and humanitarian law, social sciences and administration. The working languages of the Tribunal are English, French and Arabic, but in some cases, knowledge of Dutch, the language of the host country, is beneficial.
The STL employs staff from all over the world. The paramount consideration in the appointment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity. Selection of staff members is made without distinction as to race, sex or religion. So far as practicable, selection is made on a competitive basis.

Important notice for applicants who are currently employed at another international organization seated in the Netherlands:
If you are currently a staff member of an international organization in the Netherlands, please be aware that when taking up employment at STL, if your contract at STL does not take effect immediately (i.e. the first working day) after your current contract ends, this may have consequences for your fiscal privileges and immunities. In addition, years saved up to apply for a permanent resident permit under Dutch Aliens law could be lost.
