The Institute's vision is to be an international reference in education and consultancy.   As such, it strives to recruit the quality teachers and attract staff of the highest calibre.   This policy sets out the procedure for recruiting faculty, consultant and administrative staff.


The policy covers all activities and tasks related to the recruitment and selection process and it is applicable to all positions.  As such, it is crucial for all stakeholders to strongly adhere to it.

Basic Principles

First and foremost, it is the policy of the Institute to implement equal employment opportunity to all its staff, students, faculty body and any applicant of employment without regards to race, color, religion, sex, national origin and disability in compliance with Ivorian law. As such, all stakeholders will be treated fairly.
Second, the Institute will ensure that the best candidate is chosen for the open position based on merit and on shared vision.
Third, recruitment and selection will be conducted in a professional, timely manner and in compliance with current Ivorian employment legislation. Training will be provided to all involved in the process in order to make sure that they comply with the requirements of this procedure.
This procedure will be regularly updated in order to ensure that the Institute is following best practices in the field.


The policy will be reviewed every three years.  Where there are changes in the legislation that will affect the procedure, these will be applied immediately.
