The Bank receives many requests for information and certain questions recur regularly. Please check if your query can be answered by one of the links below.
The EIB does not recruit through competitions or “concours”. EIB vacancies are published on our website. We publish also on other job websites and the international press, national newspapers and specialised press of the Member States of the European Union. Candidates are selected further to the examination of the applications received in response to the specific vacancy notices.
We regret that we can only process the applications responding specifically to currently open vacancies. If you would like to work for the EIB but none of the existing vacancies fit your profile, we advise you to continue to consult the website from time to time and to apply only to existing vacancies.
Upon your specific request to HR Staffing Division your application and personal data can be deleted.
Should you wish to withdraw your application from a specific job opening, please contact HR Staffing by completing the online form, indicating your applicant number and the job opening id and title.
You will receive an electronic acknowledgement of the application to the e-mail address you have provided, as soon as your details have been integrated into the Bank's database. Once your application has been examined you will receive information about the status of your application by email.
Time delay to decision depends on a number of factors, such as the role sought, the number of qualified candidates who apply, the priorities in processing various open vacancies and the organisation of interviews in Luxembourg. We aim at filling open posts in the shortest possible timeframe.
Your application and personal data will be preserved in the HR database for a period of 5 years from the last application date and be destroyed thereafter.
You must apply on-line for specific job openings available through the e-recruitment candidate portal. Please consult the “how to apply” section of this website. Bearing in mind the large number of applications received and our aim to process them efficiently, we can only accept on-line applications to current vacancies. Application forms or CVs sent by post, fax or e-mail will not be accepted.
Copies of diplomas are not required when applying for a job but will be requested at a later stage of the recruitment procedure. Upon submitting the on-line application, candidates certify that the statements made thereon are complete and true. Any willful misstatement may lead to disqualification from employment or disciplinary action in accordance with the policies of the EIB group.
The EIB e-recruitment application on the website is the sole point of reference. Applications are accepted for as long as the vacancy is advertised therein. Certain specialised sites may also publish advertisements, although the EIB is not responsible for any delays in updating.
If necessary, additional information (deadline, post not immediately vacant, preliminary campaign, etc.) is included in the advertisement.
All application data and documents are treated with the utmost confidentiality pursuant to the EC regulation 45/2001.
With your consent, if your profile matches another position than the one you have applied for, the HR Staffing Division may contact you to ask you whether you would be interested in applying.
