Today sees the launch of a month of events to show UK graduates and jobseekers about the opportunities that exist to work with the numerous EU bodies, such as the European Commission, European Parliament and European Council. A new website has been created to answer the most common questions about EU careers, showcase a number of Britons already working in the EU and guide you through the application procedure.

The UK makes up 12% of the EU population, but only 6% of the EU civil service and had the lowest entry rate of any country in the last recruitment round. The EU civil service needs to reflect the cultures of all members, which is why the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has embarked on this campaign.

The campaign currently focuses on graduate policy careers, though secretarial and support opportunities do also exist.
