I've heard about the so called "newcomers' schemefor ACIs" (newly recruited ACIs are offered 100 recruitment days, under the conditionthat they register Brussels as their domicile) and I would like to know more about it: can anyone apply, or are only certain language combinations needed?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jose,

Well done on passing the test! The best thing to do is to talk to your head of unit to see when and whether the scheme is being offered in the Spanish booth. I doubt that every booth offers it. The head of booth usually wants to meet with interpreters who have just passed the test, so you could bring it up then.

I was on the scheme in the English booth. There was a selection process because there were more candidates than positions on the scheme. I had to attend an interview and my language combination was also taken into account in the decision-making process.

I hope that helps. Sam

I just sent him an email, so let's see what he says.
