You will also, when digital forensic support requirements are low and on request from the Head of the Case Intake and Analysis Unit, conduct assessments of allegations of prohibited conduct related to the EIB Group operations, both inside and outside the EU, to establish if the alleged wrongdoing or misconduct represents a sufficient risk to the EIB Group to warrant the opening of an investigation.
