There are two primary categories of positions available at the Embassy: those that are directly filled in the United States and those that are filled locally.


U.S. federal agencies represented at Embassy Zagreb fill these positions in the United States. Normally, American citizen employees of these agencies fill direct-hire positions. The federal agencies currently represented at Embassy Zagreb are the U.S. Department of State (DOS), the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (DOA), and the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).

Information concerning careers and internships with the Department of State is available here . Similarly, information about employment with DOC is available at www.doc.gov . Typically, career members of the U.S. military fill DOD direct-hire positions.

Locally-Engaged Staff

These positions are all hired in Croatia through the Embassy Human Resources Office. The Embassy’s policy is to post all such vacancies on the Embassy website to ensure the widest distribution possible. Each announcement provides a description of the position, the required qualifications, the closing date for applications, and all application procedures. All locally-hired positions require that the applicant already be legally entitled to work in Croatia.

Once all applications are received, they are rank-ordered according to the applicant’s qualifications. The employing office then conducts interviews of the most qualified applicants in conjunction with the Human Resources Office, and selects a candidate for the position. All applicants are notified in writing as to the final status of their application.

The Embassy encourages equal opportunity and fair and equitable treatment for all without regard to political affiliation, race, ethnicity, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age, or physical handicap.

Any questions regarding vacancies should be addressed to the Embassy’s Human Resources Office, phone (385) (1) 661-2201, fax (385) (1) 661-2370, or to one of the addresses below:
