Recruitment

A strong application is your passport to success

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) is an international organisation, so you are competing with a highly skilled and diverse pool of talented people.

At EUIPO we only interview candidates who submit outstanding applications and we may ask you to perform further written tests as part of our selection procedure. It's a rigorous process but it's designed with you in mind. If you're right for us, we want to make sure we find you.

When you apply for a job with us

  • Check that your profile matches our basic eligibility criteria, as we cannot waive these under any circumstances.
  • Check that where we have specified particular skills and experience, you have given all the necessary details on your CV.

Because we receive so many applications, we are unable to reply to all unsuccessful applicants and we cannot consider any unsolicited applications or CVs.
