Alexandra K., Programme Manager

I joined the European Commission services in 2019, working as a policy officer at DG EMPL (Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion). I work in a geographical unit, which means I follow and monitor a specific country, Sweden in my case. Other colleagues in my unit monitor developments in Italy and Denmark.

My job is very diverse and challenging; and involves a combination of policy work (focusing on employment and social issues in the European semester) and programme management of the European Social Fund in Sweden.

The main working language in my DG is English, but since I focus on Sweden, I also work in Swedish. Other colleagues also work in the respective languages of the countries they monitor, my unit is quite multilingual!

I have a master’s degree in law, from Stockholm University. Before working for the European Commission, I worked for an advocacy and campaigning NGO in Brussels.
