Modernised EU staff selection methods: improved service and transparency for candidates
The European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) took its first practical and very visible steps towards modernised and streamlined selection methods that are to become fully operational next year. From today, notices of competition are published in all 23 official languages for the first time. Prospective candidates are encouraged to take some voluntary interactive tests even before filling in the application form. This allows them to assess for themselves whether they are ready to take a selection competition. A clearer application form and on-line help for filling this in make the process much easier for candidates. Also today, EPSO is launching a new, more intuitive layout of its website and a new brand and logo - under the slogan 'EU career - smart choice'. This emphasises the wide range of attractive opportunities on offer from the EU institutions.
