The European Parliament (EP) is looking for experienced, multi-talented, resilient and highly motivated assistants who can play a key role in the organisation of the European Parliament's daily work.

As an assistant you will enjoy different challenges every day. You could be carrying out a range of implementation, support and logistical tasks such as:

  • Assisting in parliamentary work ranging for example from preparing, formatting and checking official documents such as reports, opinions, amendments, sending them for translation,  assisting in planning and organising Committee/Delegation meetings and public hearings as well as organising missions and other events outside the three places of work of the European Parliament.
  • Carrying out communication activities such as drafting texts for the general public as well as for internal use, newsletters, updating  intranet and internet sites, production and finalising page layout for document publications.
  • Managing correspondence and mail by processing and sending standard internal letters and notes to internal and external recipients.
  • Ensuring the smooth daily running of a committee/delegation/unit secretariat by providing administrative support where needed (taking care of logistical arrangements, facilitating the information flow, etc.).

You will be based in Brussels. Work related travel - mainly to Strasbourg - may be required.

Indicative basic monthly starting salary: EUR 3,424 (based on a 40-hour working week).

Relevant professional experience related to the job plays an important role in this selection procedure.
