Complete application documentation includes a covering letter, a curriculum vitae (cv) with a photo and references. For trainees, the last three school reports. Important: make sure you include full contact details, with e-mail address and telephone number
How does the application process work?
We start by making an initial selection in agreement with the specialist area in question, then follow up with first and second interviews. Our decision will then be based on that.
