Working at the Prime Minister’s Office

The Prime Minister's Office is a unique workplace that offers meaningful work at the heart of central government. The office promotes collaboration between the Government and the branches of administration. As a coordinating body for the Government’s work, the office takes a cross-cutting approach to its tasks and services and works closely with the other ministries.  

The Prime Minister’s Office is one of the twelve ministries and employs over 600 people. It offers a wide range of interesting tasks. Some of us work in expert positions relating to EU affairs, state ownership steering, communications or financial administration. The office also employs many professionals in positions relating to joint services for the ministries, such as in-house services and transportation, translation, and information management.

Our wide array of tasks means that the office has employees from a variety of educational backgrounds with work experience from both the public and private sectors. The most common degrees held by our employees are Master of Social Sciences, Master of Arts and Master of Laws. The majority of employees with a degree from a university of applied sciences are Bachelors of Business Administration. The average age of employees at the Prime Minister’s Office is slightly under 50 years. 

At the Prime Minister’s Office, we value the development of our expertise and work. As an expert organisation, we feel that personal development is an integral part of our work and we encourage everyone to find their own unique way to deepen and broaden their expertise. We encourage independent ways of working and personal development through training, networking and interesting tasks.


Every year, the Prime Minister's Office employs dozens of university trainees in its different departments and units. Traineeships are available for students in a variety of fields. Our trainees include students in law, political science, economics and information science, as well as communications, languages and IT. We also offer traineeships to students studying to be executive assistants or students in the security, tourism and restaurant sectors.
