New Internal Competitions : overview by DG HR
Three internal competitions have been published on 9.2.2016 in the
Administrative Notices. These internal competitions are open not only to
Officials and Temporary Agents but, for the first time ever, to Contract
Agents in Function Group II, III and IV working in the Commission.
In application of the Conditions of Employment of Other Servants (CEOS),
these competitions are not open to Contract Agents in FG I or to
Contract Agents from other Institutions or Agencies.
Here below are the key aspects of these competitions, with a particular focus
on Contract Agents:
According to the Conditions of Employment of Other
Servants (CEOS), Internal Competitions can be opened to Contract Agents only
at certain grades. It has been decided to organise competitions at the highest
grades possible for this category of staff: AST/SC2, AST2, and AD6.
In accordance with the rules set out in the CEOS, Contract Agents will only
have the possibility to apply to the grade corresponding to their function
group at the closing date of the application: Contract Agents in FG II
will be able to register for the AST/SC2 competition, FG III for the AST2
competition, and FG IV for the AD6 competition.
As regards the eligibility conditions, Article 82(7)
of the CEOS requires for Contract Agents a minimum of 3 years of service
within the Institution. However, this is a minimum condition. In order to
strengthen the link between merit and increased career opportunities, each
competition notice will require, at the closing date, a minimum of 3.5
years of service in the Commission, of which at least one has been
spent in active service in the year prior to the closing date of the
competition. Moreover, candidates must have spent at least the last 6
months in the FG of the competition, or higher.
With regard to the competition procedure, candidates
for all three competitions will undertake an initial computer-based
pre-selection test, including professional tests. Following this stage, three
times the number of expected laureates per function group will be invited to
an interview with the Board. Candidates in remote locations (for example,
Delegations and Representations), may be interviewed by videoconference.
The total number of laureates has been set at 85
(35 AST/SC2, 20 AST2, and 30 AD6). The reserve list will be kept open
for at least 2 years to take into account the ceiling on laureates set out
in the Staff Regulations for Contract Agents (maximum of 5% of the total
recruitments per year).
In order to be appointed as Officials, successful
Contract Agents and Temporary Agents must apply to vacant positions
open to laureates of competitions. Since this is an internal competition,
these positions must be within the Commission only. Successful
Officials will be automatically reclassified on their posts.
With regard to timing, the competition should allow
the recruitment of the first laureates still in 2016.
Finally, it should be noted that important work is also on-going on the new
General Implementing Provisions (GIP) for Contract Agents, with the aim of
improving their selection, career opportunities, and mobility. As part of DG
HR's new and comprehensive approach to talent management, both the internal
competitions and the new GIPs represent a key milestone for Contract Agents.
La Commissaire des Ressources humaines Mme Georgieva souhaite « une
meilleure intégration des agents contractuels et temporaires dans les
services en développant notamment les perspectives de carrière et la
mobilité interne pour ces agents ».
Elle rappelle que « le personnel de la Commission compte 6 401
agents contractuels et 1 152 agents temporaires ». Elle note la
tendance à la hausse du personnel temporaire et contractuel.
Des négociations à ce sujet sont actuellement en cours. Si vous voulez
que les objectifs fixés par Mme Georgieva soient vraiment atteints:

l'indifférence envers les autres.
