Management Skills Assessment

Frankfurt, Germany, 13 March 2018


The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) is currently in the process of procuring a supplier to assist in the recruitment process for management levels at EIOPA as well as other European Union Institutions that wish to join the procurement procedure. The objective of the envisaged framework agreement is to assist EIOPA and other contracting authorities in the recruitment of managerial positions by assessing and evaluating the generic and behavioural leadership and management competencies of potential future middle managers.

The expected amount of required assessments is estimated to be 23 to 31 candidates per year, but the number may change depending on the number of actual recruitment campaigns.


The general objective is to assess candidates in recruitment campaigns for middle management positions as described above and to:

  • Receive a concise report and analysis of the management competencies and capabilities of potential managers for recruitment purpose;

  • Allow the outcome of the assessment to be used by the Contacting authority afterwards (for example for the development of recruited managers).

Specific objectives

The successful tenderer is expected to perform the following services:

  • Assess the required leadership and management competencies of potential managers with regards to an advertised position;

  • Assess the variety of managerial styles the potential managers are already demonstrating.

Specific activities

  • The contractor is expected to provide a variety of tools (assessment of the CV against the vacancy notice, relevant online questionnaires, role plays, etc.) to assess the processes specified in II.2, also depending on the different managerial levels (Head of Department, Head of Unit).

  • The assessment face to face, like role plays, will be conducted in addition to panel interviews. The contractor should remain flexible in terms of dates. The panel interviews are normally scheduled within 2 to 3 consecutive days.

  • The contractor is expected to provide oral and written assessment at each stage of the process.
