After completing his studies, Frank Engel began his professional career as an independent consultant, before becoming Editor in chief of CODEX.

Working for the leading party in Luxembourg, he also became a member of the National Committee of CSV as well as a member of the Presidium of the CSV. In addition to his main political activities, Frank Engel is also Honorary Consul of the Republic of Armenia to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

In 2009, Frank Engel stood up for election for the first time and was eventually elected to become the youngest Luxembourgish Member of the European Parliament where he served as the Head of the Luxembourgish delegation to the European People's Party (EPP).

He was re-elected in 2014 and is currently serving on the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs. .

As a former member of the Employment and Social Affairs Committee, of the Special Committee on the Financial, Economic and Social Crisis (CRIS) as well as of the Special Committee on the Policy Challenges and Budgetary Resources for a sustainable European Union after 2013 (SURE), he has strived to ensure that these committees and the European Parliament are ambitious in adopting a bold vision of the European Union's political, economic and budgetary means, to tackle its future challenges.
