Working for the European Commission is challenging! You will not find another organisation like it, in terms of the work you will be doing and in terms of the genuinely multicultural environment in which you will find yourself.
The European Commission is launching a call for expressions of interest to set up a pool of contract agents, in function groups II, III and IV in the following generalist fields: administration, audit, secretariat, economy, finance, information and communication, languages, law, policy, program/project management and statistics…
To participate in this call for expressions of interest, you must apply through 'EU CV online'. If you are not yet registered in this database, you must first create an account and an electronic CV. Once your CV is completed, you may choose and apply for the call(s) for the corresponding function group(s). You may apply for one or several function groups, provided you fulfil the eligibility requirements for the corresponding function group, as set out in the call for expressions. In each function group candidates may choose one or several profiles and places of employment.
The Commission services will search the database and identify candidates to be invited for competency interviews. The successful candidates will be offered a fixed-term contract under article 3b of the Conditions of Employment of Other Servants of the European Union (CEOS). This call does not cover 3A-contract types which may lead to an indefinite duration contract. The majority of contracts will be granted in the Commission's main places of employment: Brussels (Belgium), Luxembourg (Luxembourg) and Ispra (Italy), although some positions may be open in other places of employment, such as Geel (Belgium), Karlsruhe (Germany), Petten (The Netherlands) and Seville (Spain).
