CAST Competition for Irish Translators​

EPSO has recently launched a CAST Permanent competition for Translators for the EU's many institutions (EPSO/CAST/P/22/2019).

The CAST process aims to provide a list of eligible candidates for temporary postitions when temporary vacancies arise. Accordingly, the length of the contract is dependant on the requirements of the service at any given time.

Once a CAST list is compiled, any one of the institutions (e.g. The European Parliament, Council of the European Union, the European Commission) may draw from this list to offer contracts.

This could be a fantastic opportunity for those with proficiency in Irish to gain invaluable experience of working in the EU.

More information can be found on the EPSO website.

Go n-éirí libh!

Support for Irish candidates in EPSO competitions

The EU Jobs team at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade would like to remind you that we have been providing support to Irish candidates sitting the various EPSO concours and will continue this support in 2019.

This support has taken the form of information sessions with experts in EPSO competition procedures, provision of additional question materials for the Computer Based Testing stage, and the organisation of specialised training sessions for those sitting the Assessment Centre stage.

We are open to discussing supports we can provide to help you in these competitive procedures and invite you to contact us with more information.

We also hope to add to the supports we can offer in 2019, to ensure the continued success of Irish applicants to these careers in the EU institutions.

We wish you all the best for 2019!
