  1. Overview of the application process
    The grey belt at the top indicates the seven steps of the application process that you must go through. The step you are at will be highlighted in white. Right now you are at the initial step “Privacy Policy”. The actual application process starts when you start filling in “Personal Details”. You will then have four consecutive hours to complete and submit the application form. During the application process you can navigate freely between the different steps and reedit your entries. However, it is not possible to save and close your application and then continue working on it later. Nor can you change the application once it has been submitted. You may, however, change your CV at any time.

  2. Preparations
    Before starting the application process, consider creating a job-seeker account and make sure you have the following documents available in electronic format (word, pdf, txt; maximum 10 MB per attachment):
