Staff with disabilities

Updated on:

All positions open to recruitment at the University of Bordeaux are accessible to all profiles, including people with disabilities.

There are job offers specially reserved for beneficiaries of the obligation to employ (BOE), people with disabilities who are not civil servants, but who meet the same diploma requirements as those for the public service competitive exam.

These positions published in March and April every year, offer one-year employment contracts, after which tenure can be granted following an interview.

Who can be recognised as an obligation to employ beneficiary (BOE)?

  • workers recognised as disabled (RQTH)
  • people receiving a disability pension, disability allowance or benefit, disabled adult allowance
  • disability card holders
  • beneficiaries of military disability and war victim pensions
  • victims of an occupational accident or illness having caused a permanent disability of at least 10% and who receive a pension from a compulsory social protection plan
