Due to the recent evolution of the coronavirus COVID-19 in Europe and in line with other EU institutions, the European Committee of the Regions has decided to put all its interviews and medical check-ups prior to recruitment taking place in Brussels on hold as of 16 March until further notice.
Nevertheless, the CoR will continue to publish vacancy notices but selection interviews will be scheduled via videoconference only. We kindly ask candidates for recruitment procedures NOT to come to CoR premises.
In the meantime, candidates who have already applied for an open vacancy notice for officials or who are taking part in a recruitment procedure for temporary or contract staff, are invited to contact our Recruitment team for latest news concerning their selection procedure (firstname.lastname@example.org for officials – email@example.com for temporary and contract staff).
We thank you for your understanding.
Employees of local, regional and national bodies or intergovernmental organisations may also apply for positions as
seconded national experts.
In order to be recruited as
an official by an EU institution, you need to pass an open competition organised at the inter-institutional level by the
European Personnel Selection Office.
Vacancies published by the CoR are intended for officials who are already working at the CoR or in the other institutions. Successful competition candidates may also apply if they meet the eligibility requirements set out in the notice of vacancy.
The CoR sometimes employs
contract staff. This is particularly the case when a post is waiting to be filled, when a staff member is absent due to long-term illness or leave on personal grounds, or when a department has to carry out a specific task in addition to its usual work. In any event, such contracts are for a limited period.
Applicants must be from one of the EU's Member States. They must have a thorough knowledge of one of the EU's official languages and a satisfactory knowledge of at least one other of these languages.
If you wish to be considered for such a contract, you can apply online for your profile to be added to our database of spontaneous applications.
If an opportunity corresponding to your profile arises, you may be contacted for an interview.
