How do we select ?

After submitting your application, we will check your application. The selection is initially based on the basis of the information given in your online application. Your answers to the questions relating to the general and specific conditions will be processed to determine whether you fulfil all the conditions for admission to the competition. In case you have the highest marks and you meet the eligibility criteria you will be invited to our Assessment Centre in Brussels to take part in a competitive selection procedure during which we can get to know you and assess your mastery of the skills and competences needed to work in the field of building and construction in a multilingual European working environment.

You will sit a series of multiple-choice tests to assess your reasoning skills in your first language. This is followed by a series of exercises in your second language (English, French or German) : an interview on your general competencies, an interview on your specific competencies in the field, a case study and a group exercise. If you are among the best you will join the list of successful candidates. You will have an interview when the EU institutions need to recruit building staff. 

In case the number of applicants exceeds a certain threshold, the multiple choice tests will be organised separately. You will be informed about this through your EPSO Account.
