Online Information Sessions on EU Careers

On June 23, Servizzi Ewropej f’Malta (SEM) and Europe Direct Valletta hosted the second webinar as part of a series of online information sessions on EU Careers ‘An EU Career for You’.

During this webinar, SEM officials focused on providing attendees with more in-detail information on the Contract Agents and Temporary Agent positions in the EU as presented during the introductory session on June 9.

The first part of the session was aimed at providing the participants with a better understanding of what are contract agents and temporary staff, and what are the tasks and grades associated with the respective positions. Guidance was also provided on the respective recruitment procedures, and on certain selection tests that prospective candidates must undergo. Furthermore, information was also provided on practical matters such as salaries, contract lengths and where to find vacancy notices related to these types of positions.

For the second half of the session, Maltese nationals currently working with the EU institutions and agencies shared their experience on pursuing an EU Career, explained the benefits of working in the EU and shared some advice with the participants.
