Working for IHI

Thank you for your interest in working for IHI. We employ two main categories of staff at the IHI Programme Office - Temporary Agents and Contract Agents. All posts are advertised here, and the selection procedures governing the selection of Temporary and Contract Agents are as follows:

  • Temporary Agents – Recruitment is organised by IHI and all vacancy notices are published on our website. When applying for vacant positions, you should follow the instructions in the vacancy notice. We do not consider spontaneous applications. Please consult this section regularly for open vacancies and selections.
  • Contract Agents - Contract Agents are recruited in a similar way to Temporary Agents. Alternatively, we may recruit candidates who have already successfully passed an EPSO selection test for the relevant function group (with valid status in the EPSO database) and whose profile corresponds to the requirements of the vacant post.

More information on the recruitment of Temporary and Contract Agents can be found in the following documents:the IMI Recruitment Policy, and the procedures on the engagement and use of Temporary Agents and Contract Agents. Temporary and Contract Agents are employed under the Staff Regulations of Officials and Conditions of Employment of Other Servants of the European Union.

  • Trainees (stagiaires) - Through our traineeship programme, we provide young university graduates, or those who (in the framework of lifelong learning) have recently obtained a university diploma and are at the beginning of a new professional career, with an opportunity to obtain first-hand experience of working in an international and multi-cultural environment and support the activities of the world’s largest public-private partnership in life sciences.
    IHI JU organises open calls for trainees and all vacancy notices are published on our website. When applying for vacant position, trainees should follow the instructions in the vacancy notice. We do not consider spontaneous applications. Each application is screened based on the eligibility criteria. The most suitable candidates are contacted for an interview to discuss their expectations and availability. The Executive Director takes the final decision on the appointment of the selected candidate. The traineeship programme lasts from 3 to 6 months. Further information on this opportunity can be found in the rules and procedures of our traineeship programme and the rules on the use of trainees.

Interim job opportunities
