Deadlines to apply for Estonia’s top IT and tax jobs extended ({{commentsTotal}})


Citing a shortage of candidates, on Tuesday the Government Office extended the deadline to fill the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications’ position of Deputy Secretary General for communication and state information systems until Dec. 13.

The competition for the position of Director General of the Tax and Customs Board was extended for the same reason on Monday.

“As things stand now, not enough good candidates have applied. We want the competition for a job like this to be as intense as possible. Right now we have two applications,” Kristiina Tiimus, spokesperson for the Government Office, told BNS on Tuesday.

She added that this was not to say that the qualifications of the two candidates who had applied were not good enough.

The government’s top IT job will become vacant upon the resignation of current Deputy Secretary General Taavi Kotka on Jan. 31.

The Government Office announced on Monday that it had extended the competition to fill the position of Director General of the Tax and Customs Board, as not enough strong candidates had applied by the deadline. The deadline had been extended until Dec. 14, the Government Office said.

The position of Estonia’s tax chief became available when Director General Marek Helm announced at the beginning of October that he would join the software and business consultancy company Nortal in mid-January.
