Newcomers' corner

The newcomers’ corner provides useful information on what you need to do before starting work at the ECB, including information on relocating to Frankfurt am Main.

The section on security clearance deserves your particular attention: it is essential that you submit the relevant documents to the ECB before you start work, and it may take some time to acquire them.
