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.

          We use a range of assessment tools to make sure we find the candidate whose profile most closely matches the requirements of the position. Our assessment tools include written exercises, candidate presentation, panel and/or one-on-one interviews. In certain cases may include also psychological assessment.
          During the interview(s) you will be asked about your knowledge, experience, opinions as well as how you have handled past situations and how you would handle specific scenarios.
          These assessment tools will cover a number of the key technical and behavioural competencies which have been identified in the vacancy notice.

          Preparation for the Inverview

          We recommend that you prepare carefully for the interview:

          • Familiarise yourself with the GSA’s mission and tasks.
          • Read the vacancy notice carefully and think about where you have performed tasks similar to those described and have demonstrated relevant competencies. We will want to know why you think you are the right person for the position and how your experience makes you suitable.
          • Be open and communicate your thoughts, views and feelings to the committee. We want to get an impression of you as a person and not just of your knowledge and competencies.
          • Take the opportunity to ask questions and obtain the information you need to help you for an opinion of whether the position and the GSA is where you would like to be.
