2.4 Can I apply for a post in a higher career path than my current one?

You can, provided that you meet the requirements of the published post.  Please note that if you are selected, any change in your career path will be subject to the annual advancement and promotion review exercise (MARS). In particular you must have performed your duties for at least a year for a possible change of career path to be considered (see Administrative Circular N°26 (Rev. 9)).
