How does OHIM select and recruit?

You must register for the database via the online application form in your EPSO Account. You can only apply for one profile.

For each vacancy OHIM will short-list a certain number of candidates, on the basis of the information in the application forms, to be invited to participate in computer-based general ability tests, a competency test and an interview (probably in Alicante).

The best-performing candidate(s) in the tests and interview (with the minimum pass marks in all tests) may be offered a contract.

This selection procedure is organised by OHIM with technical support from the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO). The database will only be used by OHIM.
