Your job and responsibilities

Interested in a position where you play a key role in the management of meeting documents? Want to work in a Directorate at the service of two separate European Union (EU) institutions, and thus have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with different EU projects and policies?

As an assistant in the Translation Workflow and Helpdesk Sector:

  • You are responsible for ensuring the timely availability of meeting documents and for a consistent and coherent implementation of the procedures regarding translation;
  • You are responsible for the validation of requests for translation, editing or proofreading and you work closely with the requesting services, the Directorate for Translation and the Directorate for Logistics to monitor the entire content production chain;
  • You organise translation standbys and take part in various cooperation networks;
  • You monitor and anticipate any fluctuations in the translation demand and propose mitigation measures;
  • You are part of a dynamic directorate where a wide range of internal and interinstitutional training courses, in addition to language classes, are offered, as well as formal and informal contacts with colleagues in other units through cross-service activities such as the Translation AST network.


Are you the talent we are looking for?

  • You have a thorough knowledge of one of the official languages of the European Union and a satisfactory knowledge of another of these languages. For functional reasons, a good knowledge of English or French is required and the knowledge of the other language would be an asset;
  • You have a good command of IT applications and tools (Outlook, Excel, Word, SharePoint, etc.) and the ability to learn other specific applications;
  • You have very good communication skills and ability to work as part of a team (but also independently when required) and to fit in with an international working environment;
  • You have a strong sense of responsibility and the ability to work well under pressure and to set priorities;
  • You are self-motivated with a very strong ability to take initiative.
