This programme is open only to students who are nationals/passport holders of the Mediterranean partner countries (Algeria, Egypt, Gaza/West Bank, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey).
No, the possession of a work permit in the EU is not sufficient by itself to be eligible for an EIB post.
There is not a quota system on the nationalities of staff. Nonetheless, the Bank’s Statutes (art. 11.7) require staff selection processes to consider, not only personal ability and qualifications, but also the attainment of an equitable representation of the nationals of the Bank’s Member States. This may mean that in cases where competence levels of candidates are comparable, preference may be given to candidates of under-represented nationalities.
The two official working languages at the European Investment Bank are English and French. Excellent knowledge of written and spoken English and/or French and good command of the other language are required. In practice, however, numerous languages are spoken in the day-to-day work, therefore knowledge of other EU languages would be an advantage. The EIB provides access to language training for staff.
