What could a career in the European Commission offer me?

European CommissionHave you ever wondered what working in the EU would involve? There will be a great opportunity to hear about all the different careers that are available in the European Commission via a presentation delivered by Francesca Manchi from the European Commission on  11 March (1-2pm) in B307 B/C (University Building). The European Commission is like the European branch of the Civil Service, so this will appeal to a wide range of students from all disciplines including Maths, Science, Law, Social Sciences and Business. There are specific opportunities available according to different interests including working in legal teams or within a Science –related area.

For a paid 6 month internship, known as a ‘stage’ or traineeship, you need to speak another European language other than the one you are fluent in, such as a rusty A Level, though you will need to brush this up! Your language ability will not be tested beforehand. The ‘stage’ is taken after you have graduated.

For the graduate programme, the procedure is known as the ’Concours’. It is very competitive  and you will have to demonstrate your ability in another European language.

In both cases, you will work in either Brussels or Luxembourg.
