More than 18 900 applicants for civil service jobs

The competition to hire 1000 new senior staff for civil service received a total of 18,924 applications. 

This competition will enable setting up recruitment reserves in the legal (16.6%), economic (10.3%), financial (23.3%), heritage management (12.3%), and public policy planning, control, and assessment (37.6%) fields. 

The average age of the applicants who registered on the State Employment portal is 35 years. Around 40% are aged 29 or younger.

Now that the application period, which ran from 20 October to 6 November is over, it is now time for the application analysis phase, to be done by the DGAEP (Directorate-General for Administration and State Employment), followed by knowledge and psychologic evaluation tests. The final stage will be organised according to the outcomes of these two stages.

Once the recruitment reserves are set up, which should take place in the second quarter of 2024, job offerings will be announced, allowing the applicants to state their preference, who will then be called for a skills assessment interview by state employers.

The recruitment reserves can then be used to hire workers with work agreements for civil service, for an indefinite period or a specific period, as long as the applicants show they are willing to accept those posts.
