Career in the European GNSS Agency

gsti

Working within the European GNSS Agency represents a unique opportunity to contribute to the most important technological innovation project in the European Union. The Agency needs highly qualified personnel, able to undertake the specialised tasks that will make the plans a reality. Determined to apply the best world-class competitive practices, the GSA has drawn a large majority of its current staff from the private sector, mostly from commercial industries.

However, we also look for a wide variety of corporate service personnel, e.g. HR specialists, finance experts, auditors, legal counsels, lawyer, communication officers, procurement experts or IT experts. All of these specialists require secretarial, administrative and support services, so we hire in these areas too.

Traineeship

The European GNSS Agency (GSA) provides university students and graduates with a unique and first-hand experience of the workings of the GSA, in particular, and of the EU institutions in general.

You may find more information about the eligibility criteria as well as the rights and duties of the trainees in the Rules governing the traineeship scheme of the European GNSS Agency. We recommend you to read them carefully before submitting your CV.
