The employment support contract (CUI-CAE)

The employment support contract (CUI-CAE) is a subsidised private-law contract (in the non-market sector) intended for people experiencing difficulties finding a job. It has a minimum duration of 6 months. Subject to specific contract clauses, the salary is equivalent to the hourly minimum wage. We undertake to dispense the training provided for in the contract throughout its duration.

Becoming a civil servant at Caisse des Dépôts Public Institution

Caisse des Dépôts Public Institution employees are governed by the Civil Service’s common-law system. Access to jobs is therefore by competitive examination or, if you are already a civil servant in a State or other government public body, via various career mobility systems within the Civil Service.

External competitive examinations and recruitment

Competitive examinations lead to jobs in activity sectors grouped into categories (A, B and C) depending on levels of qualification required and the corresponding positions’ levels of responsibility. “External” examinations are open to anybody fulfilling the required conditions (level of qualification in particular), while “internal” exams are open to civil servants with a measure of seniority who wish to pursue their careers at a higher level.

Depending on activity sector and the specialities within each sector, competitive examinations are:

  • Either held at interministerial level, with integration into an Ecole d’Application (a post-graduate institute such as the ENA or a Regional Institute of Administration) for managerial positions, in which case Caisse des Dépôts has a number of positions available, to be chosen by successful candidates in accordance with their ranking,
  • Or held directly by Caisse des Dépôts to meet its own needs; for category C jobs requiring no particular prior qualification, direct selection methods without examination may be applied.



Access via mobility

Depending on your professional activity area or affiliation in another civil service department or public authority, it may be possible to obtain a transfer to Caisse des Dépôts. As a general rule, this is done in the form of a temporary posting followed by permanent integration. You can submit your candidacy after consulting the list of vacant positions disseminated at the Interministerial Public Employment Exchange (BIEP).

Assisting unqualified young people

Le dispositif Pacte (Parcours d’accès aux carrières de la fonction publique territoriale, hospitalière et de l’Etat), a été introduit par l’ordonnance n° 2005-901 du 2 août 2005. Il constitue une voie de recrutement contractuelle dans les corps de la catégorie C et vise l’accès à l’emploi des jeunes par une formation qualifiante. Le recrutement par voie de Pacte ne relève pas d’une obligation légale mais d’une politique volontariste de l’Etablissement public de la Caisse des Dépôts pour promouvoir l’égalité des chances, la diversité et la lutte contre l’exclusion. L’Etablissement public s’est ainsi engagé à recruter des jeunes sur des emplois de catégorie C par la voie du Pacte, sur la période triennale de l’Accord-cadre 2015-2017.

Ce dispositif s’adresse aux jeunes de 16 à 25 ans révolus non titulaires du baccalauréat et peu ou pas diplômés Les candidats sélectionnés ont vocation à être titularisés, à l’issue de leur contrat Pacte, après un parcours de formation en alternance d’un ou deux ans et une vérification d’aptitude professionnelle devant une commission de titularisation.

 Providing job opportunities for the disabled

The Public Institution and Group subsidiaries are actively committed to a disability policy ensuring that disabled people can apply for jobs with them and that any consequent additions to their workspace are made.

With regard to the Caisse des Dépôts Public Institution and access to jobs in the public sector, common-law exemption from competitive examinations is applied in compliance with the legislation in force. Any disabled person may be selected upon recruitment interview and become a civil servant after a year in operational practice, with refitting of his/her workstation if required. Decisions are made by an in-house jury which assesses candidates’ professional aptitude on the basis of an interview and the opinion of their supervisor during their 1st year. Caisse des Dépôts then undertakes to ensure such employees the same training and mobility/promotion opportunities enjoyed by all its staff.
