In the majority of cases, we can only accept your application if you are a national of one of the Member States of the European Union, or of a candidate country which has already started accession negotiations (Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey).
We do not operate a quota system, but strive for a balanced representation of the nationalities of EU Member States among our colleagues, according to Article 11.7 of our Statute.
The only exceptions to this nationality principle are our local agent roles, which are positions available in our external offices.
English and French are our two official working languages and it is great if applicants are comfortable with both.
If you are fluent in one of these languages (most often English), but not at our required* level in the other, you may still be hired, but must be committed to improving your level in the second language once here. We will provide support for you to achieve it.
For some roles, fluency in an additional language may also be required. Please check vacancy postings for the specific language requirements related to the role.
