State employees and workers are recruited on basis of their diplomas or study certificates. State personnel is recruited centrally through the Ministry of the Civil Service and Administrative Reform (Ministère de la Fonction publique et de la Réforme administrative - MFPRA).
Medical, paramedical, social, educational and educational careers are excluded from the procedure of centralized recruitment of state employees.
Luxembourgers and EU nationals are eligible to apply for a position as state employee. A solid command of Luxembourg’s three administrative languages (German, Luxembourgish and French) is required.
However, Luxembourg citizenship is a prerequisite for positions that involve a direct or indirect participation in the exercise of public authority and the safeguard of national interests.
