How does the selection process work?

STEP 1: Pre-selection of candidates

The coordinating organisation (AEBR) shares suitable profiles with the host organisation. The profiles are chosen for each offer taking into account the host organisation's specific needs in terms of language skills and other competences which are essential to be able to support activities planned. 

STEP 2: Selection of the volunteer

The host organisation chooses the succesful candidate(s) by setting up interviews with all or some of the pre-selected candidates and informs then the selected volunteer.
