Can I apply if I am over-qualified for the position?

Question categories:

The Notice of Competition or Call for expressions of interest describes the minimum requirements in terms of qualifications and professional experience. It also describes the nature of the duties you may be required to perform.

Anyone who meets at least these minimum requirements and whose qualifications/experience are relevant to the duties in question may apply.

Please note that if you have additional qualifications and/or professional experience, you can only be recruited at the grade/function group and for the profile indicated in the Notice or Call.

For example, if you have a bachelor's degree you may still apply for an assistants' selection procedure. You should carefully read the nature of the duties, however, to ensure that you have the right experience and motivation to perform the duties required.
