One mission, many roles
Contributing to food safety in Europe is our mission. In Parma, different teams with varied backgrounds and roles work together to this end.
Our communication specialists are in charge of communicating externally and internally about what EFSA does, from our strategy to our risk assessments. They produce news items, multimedia content and social media posts, manage our website and take care of publishing EFSA’s scientific outputs.
Our management services department is responsible for corporate service design and management. Its specialists deliver processes to manage quality standards, always guided by a strong customer focus. They are also responsible for site and contract management, events and outreach activities, as well as logistic support.
Data & analysis
Data scientists, data quality officers and business analysts manage and analyse data both quantitatively and qualitatively. Their expertise is needed to provide a data-driven basis not only for EFSA’s risk assessments but also for key business decisions.
Engagement & external relations
Committed to meet the expectations and requirements of internal and external stakeholders, the engagement and external relations team is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective and trust-based relationships with partners and interested parties.
Finance & procurement
Finance specialists help EFSA make well informed business decisions related to the planning, execution and monitoring of budgets. Procurement officers help develop and manage contracts with suppliers and order services, equipment and goods.
Our Human Capital Unit provides a comprehensive set of services such as talent management and workforce planning. HR colleagues recruit new staff members, support them during their onboarding, and help them grow by facilitating their training and personal development. HR specialists are also in daily contact with staff on their rights, entitlements and obligations.
Putting their knowledge at the service of European food safety, our legal officers provide advice, draft documents, and verify compliance with legal frameworks. Their expertise is essential in supporting regulatory processes.
The expertise of our scientists is central for EFSA’s risk assessment work. We employ agronomists, biologists, chemists, entomologists… and many other scientific profiles. We also work together with independent scientists.
Transformation services deal with change management and other aspects of business transformation and performance. Specialists in this area often need to respond to unexpected situations and find practical solutions in line with new business models.
You can also join our team temporarily
We employ interims in both science and non-science areas. Interim staff may be hired for short-term placement during periods of high workload or to cover for long-term absences. Interested candidates need to register with EFSA’s current service provider.
