I quote from the message published by Somedudereplyingtoquestions the 11 August 2020 - 23:34 in the post What happens if you get to reserve list?

"In case you work in the EU institutions, be it as a contract agent, temporary agent, MEP assistant, etc. - you have access to inter-institutional vacancies on your EU institutions’ intranet website".
