Working for the European Commission is challenging! You will not find another organisation like it, in terms of the work you will be doing and in terms of the genuinely multicultural environment in which you will find yourself.

Whatever you do, the broad range of the EU’s activities, coupled with its relatively small size, means you can expect quite a high degree of responsibility at an early point in your career and in a range of different fields.

Having heard about EURES activities in the cultural sector, in late 2011 Ann-Marie Backlund decided to approach the network to assist her in her job search. Thanks to cooperation between cultural employment experts that began its existence in 2009, the Swedish soprano was invited to attend an audition at an upcoming European Job Days (EJD) event in Malmö, Sweden. Following successful auditions, Ann-Marie is now performing the lead role of Elektra in the eponymous opera by Richard Strauss at the Theater Lübeck, Germany. “The auditions were well organised and I was approached with this concrete opportunity to perform in Germany directly afterwards. To now be playing the lead role in this famous opera is a dream come true,” enthuses Ann-Marie.

Since 2009 EURES in Sweden and EURES in Germany have worked together closely to provide advice and job search assistance to those working in the cultural sector such as opera singers and classical musicians. “The cultural sector shows a high degree of mobility. For example, in Malmö it’s not uncommon to see a performer working here in the afternoon and then in Copenhagen, [Denmark] in the evening,” explains Birgitta Lindroth who works at the Swedish Public Employment Service.

Beginning in October 2009, each year an audition process is organised within the framework of the EJD event held in Malmö. “We have a pianist and our colleagues from Germany help us to match local candidates with jobs,” says Birgitta. In addition to the job matching activities which take place at the EJD auditions, many candidates are also pleased to be able to take advantage of the constructive and country-specific feedback provided by cultural sector employment specialists from another EU country. The inaugural edition in 2009 was a great success with eight newspapers, two television channels and a radio station all covering the uniquely different opportunity. At the most recent EJD in November 2011, there were 16 participants, 10 of whom passed the general audition and were asked to progress onto auditions for specific parts.

“Characterised by a high degree of mobility, the cultural sector labour market is a natural fit for the EURES network. Indeed much of the work carried out on a day-to-day basis involves providing invaluable help and advice on the practical questions of living and/or working in another European country, Birgitta concludes. Informational events and the yearly auditions at the Malmö EJD are planned for 2013.
