How are the trainees for the Graduate Traineeship Programme selected?
- The HR Department checks the applications against the eligibility criteria and establishes a list of eligible and suitable applicants whose applications, and in particular, educational background, qualifications, competences, motivation and preferences suit best the identified needs in accordance with the availability of places.
- The most suitable candidates are invited to a video interview to further express their interest, motivation and suitability for the role.
- Before a final decision is taken, the shortlisted candidates are invited to a last phone/Skype interview to check their availability, suitability, linguistic knowledge and to discuss reciprocal expectations.
- Finally, the Agency’s Executive Director appoints the selected trainees based on their suitability and on the number of places available.
The whole cycle of the Assessment phase is held in English.
