Assessment Centre 2019 - Dates and Venue

Medical Functions

Non-Medical Functions


The recruitment office starts with investigating if the technical requirements of the candidate are sufficient to work for MSF overseas. For medical and para-medical profiles certificates will be thoroughly checked.

Most non-medical candidates have to undergo a technical or professional test.

If the technical requirements are met, the recruitment officer invites the candidate to take part in an Assessment Center (AC). This is a method to find out (assess) if the candidate meets the minimum requirements for a number of MSF specific competencies.

During the AC the candidate will have a face-to-face interview and a group and individual exercise. The AC can take up to two days.
