The event will be held in Finnish.

Come and meet the Minister for European Affairs and Ownership Steering Anders Adlercreutz and hear why it is important to get more Finns into EU institutions and what kind of job opportunities the EU offers.

The European Union employs more than 40,000 people including about a thousand Finns. The EU institutions offer various types of employment, from permanent positions to temporary assignments. In the EU, you can work as a civil servant, national expert or researcher, for example. Knowing the ways of working in the EU is also useful in various tasks in Finland.

It is now possible to apply for a career in the EU institutions with a faster and simpler application procedure than before. EU positions and internships require EU citizenship and very good or good knowledge of two EU languagesfor example Finnish and English.

The institutions of the European Union offer several opportunities for internships. Especially for those interested in an EU career, an internship can be a very useful experience. A limited number of internships are also reserved for non-EU citizens.
