The EU Recruitment System From A-Z

It can take a bit of time to get your head around the complexities of the EPSO selection process, so we've gone and done the hard work for you... 

During this live session, we'll walk you through the different stages of an EPSO competition, so you can be fully prepared for what awaits you during this highly competitive process.

Making it onto a Reserve List is your primary goal, but to get there preparation is key for success, as well as, understanding what assessors will be looking for in the ideal candidate at every stage of the selection process.

EPSO Competitions - A Look At EU Selection Processes

There's a lot of confusion out there about the different types of EPSO competitions.

We often get asked the question - "what is the difference between this and that competition...and which one am I eligible to apply for?"

So let's take a look at the different types of competitions that regularly come up and explore what differentiates each one.

As a former EU Official and best-selling author of The Ultimate EU Test Book, András Baneth will debunk the mystery of each competition type by delving into the following questions:

  • What is a 'Generalist' competition?
  • What is a 'Specialist' competition?
  • What is an 'Internal' competition?
  • What is a 'CAST' competition?
  • What makes each of these competitions unique?

We hope through this online workshop we'll be able to help you discover which type(s) of competition is right for you, so you can fully take advantage of new EU career opportunities as they come up.

Please note -  this will be an interactive workshop, with the option to ask questions throughout the live session.

EPSO Competitions - A Look At EU Selection Processes 


Understanding EPSO Competencies and Values

Specific competencies and EU values play an extremely important role in each and every EPSO competition's selection process.

The tests/exercises that you will need to complete will be built around measuring these key competencies - especially once you get to the Assessment Centre.

Possessing a clear understanding of what assessors will be looking for when evaluating your strengths in each competency area, will greatly help you to excel and attain high scores. While EU values form the foundation of how situations and outcomes are judged within this context.

As a former EU Official and best-selling author of The Ultimate EU Test Book, András Baneth will share with you his first-hand experiences while exploring the following questions:

  • What are the 8 key ESPO competencies?
  • What does each competency mean within this context?
  • How is your strength per competency measured?
  • What are the key EU values?
  • How can I improve in each competency area?

The aim of this online workshop is to build a deeper understanding of each EPSO competency that assessors will be judging you on and to highlight the key EU values, so you can better prepare and excel in the exercises you will be asked to complete as part of your competition. 

Please note -  this will be an interactive workshop, with the option to ask questions throughout the live session.
