Hi Sophia,

Thanks for the question, great to hear you are interested in an EU Career. 

In order to be eligible to apply to the currently open Generalist competition, you need thorough knowledge of an official EU language (C1); and a satisfactory knowledge of English, French or German (B2).

Your nationality has no bearing on your language combination so you would be able to apply with Spanish and English.

If you are interested in translating and or interpreting with these languages, it is worth keeping an eye on the current job opportunities page.
