 For over three years now, starting in late 2011, the Greek tax administration has been provided with technical assistance by the European Commission's Task Force for Greece (TFGR) and Directorate General for Taxation and Customs Union (DG TAXUD) along with the assistance of many European Union countries and in partnership with the International Monetary Fund's technical assistance.
Upon request of the Greek tax administration, a team of "resident advisors" was established in 2014 to provide continuous technical support in Athens.

A first call for interest in early September 2013 already yielded a number of high-quality applications and enabled the recruitment of three residents working on priorities flagged by the leadership of the Greek revenue administration (large taxpayer audit and transfer pricing, intelligence and investigation, revenue analysis and operational coordination between headquarters and local offices).

The European Commission now intends to further sustain and build up resident advisor presence in Athens to support the reform of the Greek tax administration with hands-on advice.

It is expected that the assignments start in the first half of 2015 for a duration of 18-24 months. All costs will be borne by the European Commission.

Applications (in the form of résumés) could be sent by 30 January 2015 close of business.

Before applying, please read the call for interest carefully.

For any further information please contact Mr Sebastian Weinzierl (+32 229-58914, sebastian.weinzierl@ec.europa.eu) or Mr Claude Wendling (+32 229-54072, claude.wendling@ec.europa.eu) of the TFGR.
