Types of temporary contracts

As well as permanent officials, the European Commission often recruits non-permanent staff for fixed-term contracts. There are two categories of non-permanent staff

  • temporary agents perform highly specialised tasks and can be hired for a limited time
  • contract agents perform manual or administrative tasks, or provide additional capacity in specialised fields when officials are not available; their contracts can be extended for an indefinite duration
