The Ministry of Public Administration has opened a competition for 326 new permanent vacancies in various ministries in Croatia. Most of the vacancies are located in the Ministry of Finance, particularly in the Customs and Tax Administration. Also the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure is seeking new civil servants. 

These vacancies cannot be filled by internal recruitment of the ministries. This is an older problem in Croatian public administration, and a specific web application called Circa has been developed for 'encouraging the mobility of civil servants in public administration'. Nevertheless, the application has not led into a significant increase of desire to move between posts within public administration. Only 12 out of 60,000 civil servants have announced their willingness to move.
