If you join us, you’ll be working in a multicultural environment with colleagues from across Europe. You’ll have many opportunities to develop your personal and professional skills.

Our recruitment procedures:*

  • Vacancies for 'permanent posts’ in the S&D Group secretariat are filled through competitions organised by the S&D Group or by transfers, secondments or promotion, internally or from other EU institutions.
  • Vacancies for ‘fixed-term posts’ (contract agents) are usually filled through spontaneous applications followed by interviews of the suitable candidates.

However, due to the forthcoming European elections in May 2019, we will not be proceeding with the recruitment of contract agents in the immediate future. This might however be the case at a later stage during 2019 - most probably as from 1 June 2019. Therefore, we invite you to keep in touch and regularly consult this website to submit your application at a later stage. Thank you for your understanding.

If you would like to work as an assistant to an MEP, please contact directly the MEP of your constituency in question as each member employs his/her own assistant.
