Employment in the public service in Luxembourg

I am a British citizen employed by the Luxembourg government. Will Brexit affect my job?


By way of derogation from Article 40, section 1, item a) of the amended law of 16 April 1979 establishing the general status of public servants, the Government intends for civil servants, trainee civil servants and government employees of British nationality which are employed on 29 March 2019 to keep their jobs and retain their rights and responsibilities after the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.

I am a British citizen and I am planning to apply for a job with the Luxembourg State or a Luxembourg commune. I am meant to be hired in April 2019. Is Brexit likely to have an impact on my future employment?


In the event the withdrawal agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union enters into force, British citizens will be able to access civil service jobs with either the State or the communes under the same conditions and with the same rights as EU citizens.

This employment scenario will only be available until the end of the transition period, i.e. until 31st December 2020.

British citizens employed in the public administration on that date will retain their status as well as their rights and duties after the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union.
