EC Headquarters - Berlaymont building

Although Employment and Social Policies are among the activities of this Directorate General, it does not mean that we can provide any type of direct employment, except as far as the Directorate General itself is concerned. This DG is part of the European Commission and recruits its own personnel in the same way.

You can find employment in this Directorate General and in the other European Institutions either as a permanent member of the staff or with a temporary contract.

Permanent contract

If you are interested in a permanent contract, you can access the official website of the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO).  Its mission is to organise open competitions to select highly qualified staff for recruitment to all institutions of the European Union, namely the European Parliament, the Council, the European Commission, the Court of Justice, the Court of Auditors, the Economic and Social Committee, the Committee of the Regions and the European Ombudsman. Your visit will take you through the application process, answer your most common questions, and tell you where to get more information.

Temporary contract

If you are interested in a temporary contract, you might find useful to read some information about these different types of contracts

Other opportunities

Occasionally, our Directorate General publishes specific calls for expression of interest related to its activities.
