The EU Institutions need staff with the same range of skills and specialties as any government, but with the added demand for staff with language skills.
This means that linguists and translators are in especially high demand, but for economists, technology specialists, Scientists, lawyer, researchers and administrators there are richly rewarding careers working with people from right across the European Union.
Working for one of the EU institutions means working for all citizens right across the EU member states. This means you will be doing work where you can have a substantial positive impact on peoples lives.
There are two general classes of permanent officials in the EU, administrators and assistant.

On the other hand, Assistants fill supporting roles vital to the smooth functioning of the institutions.If you have the right skillset and attitude the EU will have career opportunities for you.
