Job opportunities at the Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR)

The European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) is the single point of contact for all EU citizens who wish to work for the European Institutions.

Contract agents

There are two types of contract agents:

  • contract agents on a contract of limited duration (up to a maximum of six years) work at Commission headquarters;
  • contract agents on longer-term contracts can work in satellite offices, agencies and eventually in EU delegations.

To work in Commission (Headquarters and Delegations) candidates need to have successfully passed a full CAST competition.

For more information regarding "Who may apply ?" and the generic notice about vacancies, please visit the dedicated section.

Trainees

The European Commission has an official traineeship scheme mainly aimed at young university graduates. For further information, please consult the traineeship web pages.

Seconded national experts (SNE)

SNEs are typically seconded from the civil services of EU Member States. They are usually recruited via their Permanent Representations to the EU.

Please read carefully the eligibility criteria.

Temporary agents

In exceptional circumstances, NEAR may consider engaging temporary agents.
