ECDC values

The work of the Centre is characterised by a high level of professionalism and efficiency. We believe each and every staff member’s contribution is important in making the Centre a good place to work with a strong team spirit. We can offer the opportunity to be an important part of a dynamically developing European Agency.

The core values of ECDC are to be a quality-driven, service-minded organisation that acts as one team. We expect all staff to live these values.

Quality driven

Everything we deliver is useful. This means that we:

  • search for knowledge that improves our work,
  • handle others’ time and money with respect,
  • evaluate and learn from both success and mistakes,
  • challenge and take action when needed,
  • communicate the level of quality given the available resources.

Service minded

We act on the needs of others. This means that we:

  • ask questions to understand,
  • keep our promises,
  • give a helping hand,
  • respond quickly,
  • make ourselves available.

One Team 

​We value contributions from everyone. This means that we:

  • listen to others and value diversity,
  • learn from others and share our knowledge,
  • receive and give constructive feedback,
  • meet, cooperate and coordinate our work with colleagues,
  • add value to the team.
