Career Opportunities

The European Maritime Safety Agency is an interesting and dynamic workplace offering a range of career opportunities not only for maritime experts, but also professionals in the administrative, legal and ICT related areas.

The working and contractual conditions of EMSA staff are based on the Staff Regulations (SR) and the Conditions of Employment of Other Servants of the European Communities (CEOS), as most of EMSA employees fall under these two categories. The Agency has very few permanent officials, and may also recruit Seconded National Experts.

EMSA’s recruitment and selection procedures ensure that EMSA employs personnel of the highest standards of ability, efficiency and integrity recruited from the broadest possible geographical basis among nationals of the EU Member States, Norway or Iceland. No position is reserved for nationals of any specific Member State.

EMSA is an equal opportunities employer.  Staff is selected without prejudice as to race, political, philosophical or religious beliefs, gender or sexual orientation and without reference to their marital status or family situation.
