Why an EU Institution?

Paradise for IT contractors
If you are going to freelance, then an EU institution is one of the best places to be. They like people to stay a long time - this is partly because EU Institutions are complex organisations so the longer you are there, the more valuable you become to them. This means the contracts almost always renew for the long term!

Boost your CV
You will be working with the latest technologies on challenging IT projects that address major issues that you read about in the news every day: climate change, migration, safety and security, trade, economy growth, mobile communication, digital Europe, Brexit to name but a few.

Your chance to make a difference and contribute to Europe's future
You will not work to increase a company's profit but to improve the lives of more than five hundred million European citizens. This is a challenge and a privilege, every day.

Diverse and International working environment
You will work with talented colleagues from all EU Member States. The multinational, multilingual working environment is very enriching and stimulating.
