Applying for a job at EASME

Temporary and contract agents posts

The EASME conducts its own recruitment and selection procedures, which are independent from other EU institutions or other EU agencies. The EASME does not consider spontaneous applications.

EASME can only hire contract agents (CA) who have successfully passed an EPSO selection and competence tests valid for Executive Agencies (CAST25 – CAST27 – CAST Secretary 2008 – CAST 2010 competency-tested candidates – CAST RELEX – CAST Research S/5/2013 - CAST/P/1-4/2015, CAST/P1- 17/2017).

Please note that the fact to complete and validate the online application form of the Call for Expressions of Interest (EPSO/CAST/P1-17/2017) launched by EPSO on 05/01/2017 does not mean that the candidate has automatically applied for published positions in EASME.
