We assess potential candidates according to their skills, experience and suitability for the position. For some positions, language skills are mandatory.
The most promising candidates will be invited to attend an interview, usually with the head of the relevant department, or function and HR manager. In some cases, applicants may be asked to complete a personality questionnaire or attend an assessment center. Where a candidate is living in a different country, interviews may be arranged by telephone or Skype.
Depending on the position and country location, there will be a second round of interviews before we make the final selection.
The interview is a two-way conversation – we want to know about your skills and experience, and you have the opportunity to find out more about us.
Be prepared to discuss your strengths and expertise and what you can contribute to the role and GEA.
