The type of job profiles available in the institutions of the European Union are as wide as the activities of the European Union itself. Some examples: Policy officers, project officers, communication & press officers, accounting officers Lawyers, auditors, scientific officers, contract administrators, socio-economic analysts, case handlers Translators, interpreters, lawyer-linguists, proofreaders Secretaries, HR assistants, financial assistants, conference organisers ICT specialists, web designers, audiovisual technicians, conference technicians Doctors, veterinaries, nurses, social workers Civil servants in the Institutions are divided into two functions groups – administrators and assistants. In parallel, there is a linear career system which consists of 16 levels (grades). The administrator function group (AD) covers grades 5 to 16. New staff generally enter this group at grade 5. The assistant function (AST) covers grades 1 to 11 (overlapping with Administrators in grades 5-11). New staff usually enters at grades 1 or 3.

Entry by open competition Notice of Competition published in Official Journal of European Union, also available via www.eu-careers.eu Single point of entry: European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) Apply online at: www. eu-careers.eu Organised in annual cycles for general profiles The European institutions select future officials through open competitions, which involve a series of competitive examinations Competitions are open to all citizens of the European Union who meet the specified requirements. This procedure gives all candidates a fair chance to demonstrate their abilities and guarantees selection based on merit while observing the principle of equal treatment. A Notice of Competition (23 languages) setting out the requirements for each competition is published in the Official Journal of the European Union and can be accessed via the EU Careers website. Online registration to competitions is via the same website (in English, French or German). A selection board is appointed to select the best candidates in the light of the requirements set out in the competition notice. The board compares the candidates’ performance in order to assess their suitability for the duties described in the notice. Its task is not only to evaluate their knowledge but also to identify those who are best qualified in terms of merit. Competitions are organised: - either in annual cycles; - or to meet specific needs of the institutions. More on the annual cycles of competitions on a later slide. Candidates who pass a competition are placed on a reserve list from which the institutions draw recruits as and when they need them. The aim of a competition, then, is not to fill a specific post, but to constitute a reserve pool for recruitment. The European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) is the interinstitutional office responsible for organising competitions . Two-stage procedure: Selection Recruitment EPSO is responsible for the selection procedure. The Institutions are responsible for recruitment.
This is a simplified diagram of the structure of a competition, which does not reflect all possible variations for different types of competitions. Online registration and booking of CBT test appointment (via EU Careers website and EPSO Account) Sitting computer-based admission tests (may not apply for specialist competitions) – details of types of tests on later slides. The candidates who achieve the best marks in the admission tests are invited to attend an assessment centre in Brussels – details on later slides. The candidates who achieve the highest aggregate marks at the assessment centre will be included on a reserve list (subject to proof that they meet all the eligibility requirements) and are then available for recruitment by an institutiton).
Under the new competition procedures, EPSO uses a standard « assessment centre » model, based on competencies. This model has been chosen by the institutions to be able to identify the most suitable and competent candidates for the profile required. After the admission tests, candidates are invited to an assessment centre session, which is normally held in Brussels. In the assessment centre, candidates will be tested by appropriate instruments. A detailed explanation of these items will be given in the « Assessment Centre » brochure that candidates will receive when invited to take part in this stage of the procedure. The competition notice lists the items used for a particular competition.
Following the competition, the selection board draws up a reserve list containing the names of successful candidates. The list is then sent to the institutions, since responsibility for recruitment rests solely with them. They will also be sent a document known as a “competency passport” setting out your performance at the assessment centre, which they may use during the recruitment procedure and with a view to your career development. If your name is included on the reserve list, you may be invited by an institution for an interview, but this does not mean you have any right to or guarantee of recruitment. Under the Staff Regulations, recruitment depends on posts and funds becoming available. Recruitment will be at the grade indicated in the competition notice.

Fixed-term contracts (CAST) (See also " Temporary contracts ") The EU institutions and agencies employ staff on fixed-term contracts to provide additional capacity in specialised fields where there are not enough permanent officials with the required skills. Contracts are offered for specific manual or administrative tasks . They are generally limited in duration – often for an initial period of 6-12 months. Contract staff are recruited from a pool of applicants (kept in a database) following a selection procedure usually organised by the European Personnel Selection Office. The difference between an open competition and a selection procedure for contract staff (CAST) is that: - there is no assessment centre stage - the number of successful candidates is not predefined. Regular annual selection procedures of contract staff for a limited number of generalist profiles such as secretaries, administrative staff, human resources staff, financial managers, auditors, IT and telecommunications specialists, will be introduced soon. The majority of positions are based in Brussels and Luxembourg. European Commission specific rules for employment of contract agents European Parliament specific rules for employment of contract agents Overview of selection procedure There is a two-phased procedure starting with reasoning tests or CV sift (depending upon the profile) followed by a competency test: for generalist profiles, the first step consists of verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning tests for specialist profiles the procedure begins with selection based on qualifications (CV sift) the competency test may be a written, oral or other practical test in the field (for example translating a text). If successful, your name will generally remain in the database for three years . You may apply for one generalist profile and one function group per year only. Temporary contracts (See also Fixed-term contracts ) Temporary contracts are offered for a wide variety of highly specialised or temporary tasks, for limited durations , for example in the field of scientific research . Selection and recruitment of temporary staff is generally run by individual EU institutions and agencies . Check regularly for news of current selections and vacancies . You can also introduce your details into the EU CV online database. Interim staff (temps: up to 6 months) Some EU institutions employ local staff through temping agencies on a very short-term basis. Interim consultants Some departments employ consultants directly through tendering procedures. For more information, please consult EU tenders and contracts. Freelance linguists To become a freelance translator for the European Commission, please consult the notices of call for tenders for the Court of Justice, consult the contract notices . To become a freelance interpreter at the European Commission, the European Parliament or the European Court of Justice, please see Interpreting for Europe. Junior Experts in Delegations (JED) The EU's external service delegations, situated in particular in developing countries, employ university graduates from EU countries as junior experts (full members of the administrative and technical staff) for up to two years. For more information, see the Junior Experts in Delegation programme. EU experts (database of experts) Independent experts available to assist an institution or agency in a specific field are invited to create a password-protected profile containing their details (contact details, specialisation, credentials, etc.) in expert databases maintained by individual EU institutions and agencies. They can then be called on for specific tasks as needed. See, for example: Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS) European Commission – Humanitarian Aid & Civil protection Seconded national experts National and international civil servants and public sector staff are invited to bring their experience to the EU institutions for a few years, and to take back to their home administration and knowledge of EU policies and procedures gained during their secondment. National experts are selected through a specific procedure . Please contact your country's permanent representation to the EU for information about current opportunities. Maintenance and canteen staff Certain categories of staff such as maintenance workers and canteen staff are recruited via external contracting companies. These contracts are awarded through open tender procedures. Check the contracting services for more information. Top
