Shortlisting and Interviews
Candidates are asked to submit their documentation to the Estonian Refugee Council staff by 31.03.19 via following link:
Required documents are:
- CV Europass in English
- motivation letter
- proof of EU citizenship/long therm residency (copy of passport or residency permit)
- university certificate (copy)
Those invited to the interview round are required to fill the Self Assessment Questionnaire 2 days prior the interview. SAQ can be downloaded below. If you encounter any problems with submission, please contact us at:
Shortlisting will be concluded in 2 weeks after closing date. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified and invited for the interview. All interviews will be done online, where the interview panel will consist of at least one members of UNCHR.
To select the final candidate for each position pre-selected candidates from the interview round will attend both an online and in-presence EU Aid Volunteer training, which are a part of the selection process.
Based on the interviews one or more candidates will be chosen per position. Hence please note that additional candidates may be selected for a single position.
The selection of additional candidates is to ensure a substitute volunteer per position. The substitute volunteer may be chosen to replace the candidate in case he/she resigns, is no longer available or of other reasons.
The final selection takes place shortly after the in-presence training. The remaining candidate(s) may be offered the chance to be registered in a reserve pool to cover drop-outs or unforeseen needs, and thus still have a chance of being deployed at another position.
All final selected candidates will attend a pre-deployment introduction training (2,5 days) at Danish Refugee Council’s headquarter in Copenhagen.
Please note that all costs incurred in relation to the EU in-present training and the induction training will be fully covered (i.e. EU travel, full-board accommodation, and the course itself).
If a candidate is working outside of the EU at the time of their training course, the travel costs for the following groups of volunteers will be fully covered:
• EU citizens who legally reside in a non-EU country for long-term or forever (i.e. who live in that country).
• EU citizens who are on a temporary assignment in a third country that lasts more than 24 months (i.e. who work in a third country).
For the following groups or persons only the costs from an EU country to the training venue shall be covered:
• EU citizens on a temporary assignment in a third country that lasts less than 18 months (e.g. internships, traineeships, apprenticeships, short-term jobs).
• EU citizens that are selected for the training by the same organization or affiliate with which they have an ongoing assignment in the third country, if this assignment is longer than 18 months.
