How do we select and recruit?

You will be screened on the basis of your qualifications and work experience, using the criteria set out in the call for expressions of interest below. The candidates whose profile best matches the duties and selection criteria will be invited to take a series of tests at the 'Centre de Maîtrise de la Route/Centrum voor Wegbeheersing' in Nivelles (40 km from Brussels).

This test will be held in your 2nd language (as stated in your application - either French, English or German) and will assess your driving ability (in right-hand drive vehicles). There will be 1 theory test and several practical tests.

If you attain the minimum pass mark in these tests, your name will be entered into our database. This database is used by the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Court of Justice, the Court of Auditors, the General Secretariat of the Council, the European External Action Service and the Economic and Social Committee.

These institutions will search the database and invite those candidates who best match their job requirements for an interview. At the interview, your knowledge of your main language will also be assessed.

Being entered into this database does not guarantee that you will be offered a job.
