Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

EU Careers

Looking for a challenging career in a dynamic environment?

The European Union Institutions offer an international career to ambitious and capable people. Based in the heart of Europe, you will encounter a fast-moving international environment. The EU Institutions serve 505 million people in 28 member states, so you can expect exceptional scope and scale.

Applications from Ireland

In recent years, the level of awareness of career opportunities in the EU institutions has dropped and the number of applications from Ireland has fallen. Typically, applications from Ireland for the annual graduate in-take have amounted to 500, or less. 

If you are a final year student or graduate, you can apply for entry-level positions in various fields, which are the starting point to an exciting and truly European career.

The EU Institutions regularly recruit for Graduates with work experience, administrative personnel and experienced professionals in a wide range of fields. Whether you are a final-year student in a university or college, a graduate, or a professional with years of experience, there is a role suitable for you in the EU. 

Depending on your skills, experience and job description, you can work on things as varied as drafting policies and implementing EU law, managing projects, developing communication strategies, translating, interpreting or providing legal advice.
