For how long is my reserve list valid?

Reserve lists for generalist competitions are valid for 1 year. For other profiles, they are valid for three years. The validity of reserve lists may be prolonged according to the needs of the institutions. Being on a reserve list, however, does not guarantee recruitment. A decision on the extension of the validity of a reserve list will usually be taken a few weeks before the list expires and will be published on the EU Careers website.
