We offer:

  • Two-year contracts as staff members at A1 level within EUMETSAT which, subject to good performance, will lead to a further standard staff contract of five years duration at A2-A4 level.
  • The support of highly regarded, highly skilled and experienced mentors throughout the programme.
  • Investment in your future while investing in ours, through dedicated career and personal development training.
