Internal Market Affairs Officer, EFTA Surveillance Authority, ESA

Deadline for application: 23 April 2017

Job summary

ESA is recruiting an Officer to join its Internal Market Affairs Directorate (IMA).

Location: Brussels


The EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) monitors compliance with the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA Agreement) in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, enabling those States to participate in the Internal Market of the European Union.

ESA is, like the European Commission, independent of the States and safeguards the rights of individuals and undertakings under the EEA Agreement, ensuring free movement, fair competition and control of state aid.  ESA's work helps remove barriers to trade and open up new opportunities to over 500 million Europeans, creating jobs and growth and adding to the international competitiveness of the States.

IMA is responsible for monitoring the EEA EFTA States to ensure that they comply with their obligations in the field of internal market law.  The successful candidate(s) will be assigned responsibility for general surveillance work and case handling regarding the implementation and application of EEA law.  Day to day tasks include the examination of complaints, legal conformity assessments, drafting of decisions, opinions and reports. 

For this particular vacancy, we are looking for candidates with experience of dealing with the four freedoms, and in particular the right of establishment and the freedom to provide services.  Applications may also be considered for other suitable vacancies arising in the Directorate over the next 12-18 months.

Depending on workload and other developments, the responsibilities may be changed to cover other general or specific issues relating to EEA law.
