Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

EU Careers

Looking for a challenging career in a dynamic environment?

The European Union Institutions offer an international career to ambitious and capable people. Based in the heart of Europe, you will encounter a fast-moving international environment. The EU Institutions serve 505 million people in 28 member states, so you can expect exceptional scope and scale.

Applications from Ireland

In recent years, the level of awareness of career opportunities in the EU institutions has dropped and the number of applications from Ireland has fallen. Typically, applications from Ireland for the annual graduate in-take have amounted to 500, or less. 

If you are a final year student or graduate, you can apply for entry-level positions in various fields, which are the starting point to an exciting and truly European career.

The EU Institutions regularly recruit for Graduates with work experience, administrative personnel and experienced professionals in a wide range of fields. Whether you are a final-year student in a university or college, a graduate, or a professional with years of experience, there is a role suitable for you in the EU. 

Depending on your skills, experience and job description, you can work on things as varied as drafting policies and implementing EU law, managing projects, developing communication strategies, translating, interpreting or providing legal advice.
