Job opportunities

Working at Eurostat

Eurostat offers challenging and rewarding careers in the field of European statistics.

We are always looking for highly motivated and competent people with a wide range of skills and backgrounds from all over Europe. The majority of our staff work in the field of statistics, but we also offer posts in other fields, such as economics, IT, dissemination, budget and finance, management and secretarial assistance.

Most importantly, we want our staff to have more than professional skills: you should possess the passion to deliver results that make a difference, embrace innovative thinking, and be committed to work as part of a multicultural team.

We offer you more than just a job. With your skills and talent, you can contribute to the production of high quality statistics on Europe. These form the basis for fact-based decision making and ensure that we live in an informed society with reliable and comparable European statistics.

We offer opportunities to gain experience in various statistical areas throughout your career and a wide training programme in statistics and other fields. We actively promote a non-discrimination and equality policy and a good work-life balance through flexible arrangements, like teleworking.
