​​​​​​​Seconded National Experts

Seconded National Experts (SNEs) are national or international civil servants from national authorities, who may work temporarily for EASA in a twofold role: 

  • To bring to EASA their experience from their national authorities in their field of expertise;
  • To bring to their home administration the knowledge acquired during their secondment at EASA.

If a person has already been identified to be seconded at EASA as a SNE, the Agency will directly liaise with the seconding organisation.

Alternatively, if there is a general need for SNEs, the Agency may publish an opening. Please check the page View All Jobs and create a profile to be notified about upcoming opportunities.

To apply for a secondment programme, you must

  • Be a national from an EASA or European Free Trade Area (EFTA) Member State or candidate countries, international organisations, public intergovernmental organisations (IGOs), or from non EU Member States' organisations (upon prior agreement by the Executive Director of EASA).
  • Produce evidence of a thorough knowledge of one of the EU languages and a satisfactory knowledge of another EU language to the extent necessary for the performance of the duties (candidates from a non-member country must produce evidence of a thorough knowledge of one EU language necessary for the performance of the duties);
  • Have at least three years of experience in administrative, legal, scientific, technical, advisory or supervisory functions;
  • Be employed at the time of secondment for at least 12 months by a national, regional or local public administration or an IGO (SNE’s employer must be at least part of the public sector or be an independent university or research organisation that does not seek to make profit for redistribution).
