    At the EIB, our recruiting process goes beyond merely filling roles; it’s about identifying the right individuals to shape the future of Europe and beyond. Take a look at how our selection process works. 

    For any reasonable adjustments, contact us at

    1. Search for vacancies

    All job opportunities open to external applicants are published on our online platform. This platform provides detailed information about roles, responsibilities, and required qualifications. Before applying, you will be asked to create an account, which you can use for all future job applications. Additionally, you can sign up to receive email alerts whenever we post new jobs that might be of interest to you. 

    2. Application

    Interested candidates are invited to submit their applications online through the platform. The application process typically involves providing a resume, a cover letter, and answering some screening questions depending on the specific position. Please note that we only accept applications and CVs in English or French—our two official working languages. We highly encourage candidates to apply for specific job openings that match their skills and interests.


    3. Screening

    After submitting your application, a screening process is conducted to assess the alignment with the job requirements. Shortlisted candidates may then be invited to participate in a digital interview, which could include a combination of pre-recorded questions and written responses. For certain roles, we might also ask you to complete a technical test for a more in-depth assessment of your competencies and/or knowledge of certain job-related tasks.

    For managerial roles, we will also invite you to a comprehensive external Assessment Centre. This is designed to provide a robust and independent evaluation of your managerial and behavioural competencies. The results of the Assessment Centre are summarised in a report, which remains valid for one year. You can receive feedback after the Assessment Centre.


    4. Interview and additional tests

    Successful candidates proceed to the next phase, which involves in-person or virtual panel interviews. These panel interviews aim to better assess your skills, experiences, and suitability for the role, as well as to learn more about you as a person. It also gives you the opportunity to meet the hiring team and ask questions. Additionally, you may be asked to complete job-related tests, presentations, or case studies, depending on the nature of the position.

    We also administer online reasoning and personality tests. These tests provide us with insights into your working preferences, your reasoning processes, as well as your personality. The results remain valid for one year and are made available to hiring managers and selection panel members for their consideration.

    5. Offer and pre-employment screening

    Following the interview and assessment stage, selected candidates receive a conditional job offer from the EIB. The offer outlines terms and conditions, including remuneration, benefits, and other relevant details. Our offers are conditional on the points below:

    confirmation of medical aptitude/fitness for work

    This is typically assessed through the completion of a strictly confidential questionnaire and is accessible only by our medical service.

    satisfactory completion of a pre-employment screening

    Once you have accepted the offer, we will send you your contract. It will be useful to plan your next steps, such as renting accommodation or enrolling your children in schools. The EIB will support you throughout the onboarding process. Before we launch the pre-employment screening, you will be requested to fill out a self-declaration. If the self-declaration is in order, you will receive a contract with a conditional clause, subject to the successful completion of pre-employment screening managed by the external provider. At this time, you will also be granted access to our newcomers’ portal, where you will find plenty of information about your relocation to Luxembourg and the administrative steps you will be asked to complete prior to your first day. Indefinite contracts are subject to a successful probation period of 9 months. Probation periods for fixed-term contracts may vary from 3 to 6 months.

    6. Onboarding

    This is the final step for our successful candidate who is formally offered a position. On your first day with us, you’ll have the opportunity to meet new colleagues and learn more about the organisation during your initial induction session.
