Please take note that:

  • This list will be updated regularly.
  • Interested candidates may contact the mentioned contact points to obtain more information. Possible applications and CVs should be sent to the mentioned contact points.
  • Candidates should be aware that they are only eligible for posts which have the same function group level as the function group level of the EPSO test they succeeded or the function group for which they have registered within the Commission call for expression of interest for contract staff in generalist profiles. Posts in headquarters are covered by 3b contracts. This means that contract agents working in delegations and covered by 3a contracts who apply for posts in headquarters will have to resign their 3a contracts and conclude new 3b contracts for maximum 6 years. First contract will be concluded for 1 year. Extension of 2 years will follow provided positive probation period report.
