Overall, the European Parliament employs about 6000 officials and other staff from the EU Member States.

How do you become a Community official?

The European Parliament, like all the other EU institutions, recruits by competition. There are various types of competition at different levels, which means you can apply for different posts such as administrator, lawyer linguist, interpreter, translator, assistant, secretary, skilled employee, etc.

Notices of competition are published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and in national newspapers. To obtain information on competition announcements and the projected timetable, you can click on the link to the European Communities Personnel Selection Office (EPSO).

The provisions concerning the EU civil service are set out in the European Communities’ Staff Regulations.
