You will find here the full list of open positions for 2018 including details with regards to job specifications and the relevant process in terms of deadlines, timelines and candidate requirements.
The proportion of positions occupied by women and the geographical representation in FEI Committees have increased since 2015 when the FEI Bureau encouraged female candidacies and candidacies from nations not yet represented. While this increase is promising, the FEI Bureau still strongly encourages the National Federations to nominate female candidates and representatives of non-represented nations in order to ensure gender equality and diversity among the members of the FEI Committees.
The FEI views with immense pride the fact that equestrian sport is one of very few where men and women compete as equals at all levels of international, as well as national, competition.
The FEI Bureau has approved on 24 January 2018 an Independent Election Committee established under Article 36.1 of the FEI Statutes. The main duty of the Independent Election Committee is to oversee the election processes in 2018, preserve its integrity and avoid any potential conflict of interests.

La proporción de puestos ocupados por mujeres y la representación geográfica en los comités de FEI han aumentado desde 2015 cuando el Buró de FEI alentó las candidaturas de mujeres y las candidaturas de países que aún no están representados. Si bien este aumento es prometedor, la Mesa de la FEI aún alienta encarecidamente a las Federaciones Nacionales a que designen candidatas y representantes de naciones no representadas a fin de garantizar la igualdad de género y la diversidad entre los miembros de los Comités de la FEI.

La FEI ve con gran orgullo el hecho de que el deporte ecuestre es uno de los pocos en los que hombres y mujeres compiten como iguales en todos los niveles de la competencia internacional, así como nacional.

La Mesa de la FEI aprobó el 24 de enero de 2018 un Comité Electoral Independiente establecido en virtud del Artículo 36.1 de los Estatutos de la FEI. El deber principal del Comité Electoral Independiente es supervisar los procesos electorales en 2018, preservar su integridad y evitar cualquier posible conflicto de intereses. Para obtener más información, haga clic aquí.
