Job summary

The Financial Mechanism Office of the European Free Trade Association is looking to recruit a Legal Officer.

Location: Brussels


The Financial Mechanism Office (FMO) is the secretariat of the EEA Grants and Norway Grants, and is affiliated to the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) in Brussels.

EFTA are looking for a highly motivated and qualified candidate to take on the post of Legal Officer in the FMO.

The overall objectives of the Grants are to reduce economic and social disparities in the European Economic Area (EEA) and to strengthen bilateral relations between the Donor States (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and the 15 Beneficiary States (Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Malta, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia).

The Grants are based on a programme model where the Beneficiary States are responsible for the programmes and for projects implemented under the programmes. A few programmes, notably regarding Civil Society, Regional Cooperation and Decent Work, are operated by the FMO.

In the 2009-2014 funding period the grants allocated €1.8 billion to 148 programmes under which approximately 7000 projects were carried out. The programmes and projects under this funding period are now drawing to a close.
