Secretaries (m/f)

secretariesDo you have what it takes… to join the EU institutions' office management staff?

Over 500 million people, 28 Member States, over 50,000 colleagues, communicating in at least two languages. Why work anywhere else when you can work for all of the citizens of Europe?


Working in a challenging international environment in Brussels or Luxembourg, you will have a vital role in everything we do.

We are looking for highly talented, motivated assistants in the field of office management. You will be required to carry out a range of executive, implementation, support and logistical tasks related to running an office.

To apply for a more senior position (grade AST-SC2) you will need at least four years' professional experience in the secretarial field, in addition to the requirements for AST-SC1.

You must also be an EU citizen with a perfect command of English, French, German, or Croatian.  You’ll also need a good command of another, second language (English, French or German) different from your first language.

Positions will be in Brussels or Luxembourg and the starting salaries based on a 40-hour working week are EUR 2.345 per month (AST-SC1) or EUR 2.645 per month (AST-SC2).

So, if you have the tenacity to thrive in a fast-moving environment…
If you can face a bigger challenge and make a real impact…
