I have a question about - The selection procedure

No, the period for the written (online) test is fixed.

For the oral test at Enabel's (part 1: motivation interview, and part 2: assessment center) applicants can choose from among several dates that have been e-mailed to them (via Doodle). The applicants can choose the date that suits them best.


No, you must be present in Belgium to do the selection tests.

The written test is online so you just need a good internet connection.

For the oral test (part 1 – motivation interview): If you reside abroad, a Skype interview can be organised. For the other applicants, the test is organised at Enabel’s head office.

For part 2 of the oral test (assessment center): You must be present in Belgium. The test is organised at Enabel’s head office.

Yes, you do. The Junior Programme recruits from a variety of backgrounds, also so-called 'non-technical' profiles.
Some job openings are for 'soft' project aspects like raising awareness or mainstreaming gender, communication, or monitoring and evaluation.

Have a look at the examples of jobs of former Junior Experts on the website.

A general information session is organised a few days after publication so you can get to know the Junior Programme better. This is not the right moment to ask questions about specific job openings. Twice a hotline will be opened with the Project Officer who is responsible for the job (specified in job ad). Carefully check the calendar on the website.

You may apply for several job openings. In the selection steps, your application may be retained for one or several job openings. If you make it to the step of the ‘Skype interview with the project team in the field’, you will be proposed for the job which matches your profile best.

No, we do not pay back transportation costs related to or accommodation costs during the selection.
