Your application will be reviewed and, if it is selected, you will be asked to complete a series of interviews, possibly conducted by a recruitment firm, to assess your potential for a career at the CEA.

3. Security clearance

If, after the interview process, your application is selected, we will contact you to complete the administrative aspects of your application file. Due to the confidential and strategic nature of our activities, all potential employees, regardless of title or type of contract, must obtain security clearance from the French government. The security review process is a decisive factor in all hires.
