In partnership with the European Personnel Selection Office in Brussels, the University of Leicester Career Development Service organised an EU Careers Day on 20 March to coincide with the opening of applications for graduate positions at European Union Institutions.

The event aimed to promote the careers within the EU Institutions, as well as showcase personal career journeys of individuals working for the EU.

EU institutions employ approximately 40,000 people from a diverse array of backgrounds; from lawyer linguists, policy officers, economists, translators to auditors and ICT staff there are a wide range of career choices available dependant on graduates’ interests.

The EU is currently looking specifically for talented UK graduates for their graduate-entry positions (AD5 administrators). For students interested in pursuing a career with the European Union, ready to take on real responsibility and passionate about issues affecting Europe there are various exciting options available to make real change and land that dream job working at the heart of an institution that serves 500mln people in 28 member states!

The EU Careers Day took place on 20 March between 10am and 1pm in Queens Hall, Percy Gee. It was open to all students, although was targeted especially at home/EU students who speak French and/or German with an interest in EU careers.

Approximately 100 bright and motivated students from the University of Leicester, Birmingham, Loughborough, Nottingham and Warwick attended, making this event a great success both for organisers and external partners.
