Work culture

While working here, you will have a positive impact on sustainable urban transformation and the life of people in cities across Europe.

We help people thrive in a friendly, open, and healthy environment while promoting a work/life balance.

At Eurocities, you can work from home, from our fully accessible office, and also from your home country for short periods of time.

Managers are available for discussion and collaborative work (open door management).

Discover how we support our employees and the environment in our Social and Environmental Strategy.

Our commitment extends to sustainable travel, meat-free event menus, waste reduction, and embracing the circular economy. Equally vital, we’re investing in our employees’ growth, wellbeing, and training. We encourage fathers as well as mothers to take the ONEM parental leave to care for their families.

We also implement an HR hub to offer better career perspectives and are busy implementing a charter on working conditions. More city jobs can be found on the Talent Hub for Cities and Regions on LinkedIn.

What happens if I am shortlisted?

To help us gather a little more information, in order to evaluate if your profile matches our requirements, we will often send a set of pre-selection questions to you by email.

We will also share the date(s) of the interview so you can book them in your calendar, and you will receive a call from our HR team to invite you to the interview – you will then receive an email to confirm all the details.

Come prepared: If you want to prepare yourself, you can take a look through our website and get to know a bit more about what we do and who we are. Make sure to think of 1 or 2 questions you want to ask the interviewing panel during your interview.

Test: Prior to your interview, you will be asked to complete a written test (60 minutes). There is no preparation required, we will test your knowledge and writing skills.

Interview: We prefer to meet you in person and give you the opportunity to experience the Brussels office atmosphere. If this is not possible, we can easily set up a call on MS Teams.

We will have a conversation during which we will ask you a standard set of questions to further assess your competences for the job. You will have the time to present yourself, explain your motivation to join the Eurocities team, and for the position. We will ask about your experiences and have some questions about your soft skills, such as flexibility, organisation and people skills. Then, you’ll have time to ask questions of your own.

Your future line manager will lead the conversation. They will be joined by normally one or two other members of Eurocities staff, which may include a Director and/or the Head of HR.

Decision: We aim to decide quickly, and would normally be able to let you know the outcome and offer feedback within 5-7 working days.
