EDPS recruitments are subject to the publication of a specific vacancy notice. When there is a vacancy, a notice is published according to the following procedure:
1) Internal publication: this is the first phase of the selection process. The notice is published within the institution and only staff members may apply at this stage.
2) Inter-institutional publication: if the position is not filled internally, the vacancy notice is opened to all European Institutions and at this stage, only officials from other European Institutions may apply. For this reason, the vacancy is published in the Inter-institutional Vacancy Notices page, which is accessible only from the intranet of European Institutions. If candidates fulfill all the required qualifications, an inter-institutional transfer is made. Only those positions that are not filled at this step can be filled in the manner described below.
3) Reserve list of competitions graduates
The European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) is an inter-institutional office that organises recruitment competitions for all the European institutions. Candidates who pass a competition are placed on a so called "reserve list" and can be recruited as permanent EU staff.
If the vacancy is not filled with an internal or an inter-institutional candidate, the EDPS consults reserve lists of competition graduates.
To obtain information about competition announcements and timetables, read more on the EPSO website, or announcements published in the EU Official Journal.
