Eurostat's staff at a glance

More than half of Eurostat's staff work in statistics: two thirds of all administrators and half of the assistants. Almost half of our staff work in other areas such as IT, secretarial support and administrative functions (budget, planning, human resources, communication etc.).

Women represent around 50% of Eurostat's staff and 44% of our Middle Managers are women. More female administrators is one of our objectives in order to continue to improve diversity and gender balance among colleagues also in the future. All EU nationalities are present.

Eurostat is in the forefront of using flexible working arrangements, making it easier for staff to reconcile work and private life. Flexitime is used by a majority of staff and we are one of the top 4 Directorate Generals in the Commission concerning the number of teleworkers. Commission policy also provides for part time, parental leave and other types of family related leave. A majority of our staff work in the field of statistics, Eurostat's core business. But we also offer posts in other fields, such as economics, IT, management and secretarial assistance.
