What are the phases of the selection process and how to check the processing status

1. What are the stages of the selection process

How can I access the processing status of the selection process?

Additionally, for communication and incident purposes, the office of the tribunal and the telephone number and e-mail address are indicated in all announcements.

When is the list of admitted and excluded candidates published?

  • The list of excluded candidates.
  • The website and the places where the full lists of admitted candidates are located.
  • The established deadline to rectify, if applicable, any errors which had caused the exclusion or omission.
  • The place, date and hour of the first test of the civil service examination.

What can I do if I am excluded, I don't appear on the list or I detect an error?

There is a period of 10 working days to rectify the error. Applicants must send a written request to the hiring body along with documents certifying the correct submission of the request, as well as any other documents accrediting the lack of grounds for exclusion or rectification of the error. Once said period has elapsed, the final list shall be published again in the same places as the previous lists.

When does the first test take place?

The resolution where the list of admitted and excluded candidates is published shall indicate the date of the first test. The date of the remaining tests shall be published in the resolution of admitted candidates from the previous test.

Where can I check the grades?

How are destinations offered?

The destination offers shall be made by the hiring body and shall be addressed to the admitted candidates, and a period shall be established for applying for the positions offered.

Said destination offer may be published in the Official State Gazette and, in all cases, on the website of the organising body.

How are the positions awarded?

They shall be awarded according to the destination requested by the candidates and the total score obtained after passing the selection process, notwithstanding the possibility of alteration in this order in application of the provisions of Article 9 of Royal Decree 2271/2004, of 3 December, regulating access to public employment and provision of jobs of people with disabilities.

And after publication of the appointment?

Once the appointment is published or the contract executed, the candidate must assume the position awarded (or in the case of the non-established public employees, their hiring) in the term established and before the bodies indicated in said appointment and, in the case of serving civil service personnel the act of compliance with the Constitution and other elements of the Legal Order.

And if I have participated in a selection process through internal promotion?

Applicants who have participated through internal promotion may be appointed, provided that this possibility is not excluded in the announcement of the process, a position in the Ministry or Body of the General State Administration in which they were destined, remaining, where applicable, either in the position they occupy or in a budgetary granted vacancy offered by the Ministry or Body itself provided that it is located in the same municipality in which the civil servant is assigned their permanent position.

The above is subject to proposal on the part of the Ministry or Body to which the civil servant was assigned, authorisation from the State Secretariat of the Civil Service and acceptance on the part of the interested party.

Where the Ministry or Body to which the position of the civil servant is definitively assigned does not propose permanency of the offer of a preferable vacancy to same or, once this is done, it is not authorised by the State Secretariat of the Civil Service or is not accepted by the interested party, the candidate who has passed the process by internal promotion, must request the destinations offered for the group of candidates and will be awarded a place based on the requests for same and the final order of the selection process.
