London, United Kingdom, 18 May 2017

The social media presence of the Representation of the European Commission in the UK (Representation) plays a crucial role in engaging the public on European matters. It will have a particularly important role in the period ahead defined by the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.

The working days will generally be from Monday to Friday, 8 hours per day, between 9am - 6pm. However, the Contractor may be requested occasionally to cover European summits or special events occurring during weekends. It is also expected that the Contractor monitors the Representation's social media accounts with some regularity outside of working hours, and to take action if needed, at no additional cost. Some flexibility is, therefore, required from the Contractor to exchange a limited number of weekdays for weekends and after work hours. The Contractor is expected to work at the premises of the European Commission Representation (London office) and at external locations during organised events in the UK.
The working language of the service provided is English; therefore all documentation shall be delivered in English. The same applies to all the communications during the implementation of the service.
