Knowledge of the language of the place of employment is particularly desirable. Applicants are asked to indicate their general level of spoken competence in their chosen language as per the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR). The three levels referenced in the CEFR are basic user, independent user and proficient user. Applicants will be assessed according to the level they have indicated.
