How does the European Parliament select and recruit?

Your application will be screened on the basis of your qualifications and work experience, using the criteria set out in the Call for Expressions of Interest. The names of the 600 candidates who have obtained the highest number of points and who meet the general and specific conditions laid down in the Call for Expressions of Interest will be entered in the database and will not be made public in any other form. The results of the selection procedure will be published in the candidates' EPSO accounts.

Inclusion in the database is not a guarantee that you will be offered a post.

The database will be used only by the European parliament. As vacancies arise, recruiting departments will consult the database and invite to interview those candidates whose profiles best match the requirements of the posts in question. For the interview, candidates will be required to provide the documents proving that they meet all the conditions laid down in the call for expressions of interest.

Depending on the outcome of the interview, candidates may be offered a post.


This selection procedure is organised by the European Parliament with technical support from the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO). For questions regarding the procedure, contact the specific mailbox:
