Working for IMI

Thank you for your interest in job opportunities offered by IMI.  

We use two main categories of staff in our Programme Office - Temporary Agents and Contract Agents.  We also take on Seconded National Experts and trainees.

All posts are advertised on our Jobs page.

The selection procedures governing staff selection are as follows:

  • Temporary Agents – Recruitment is organised by IMI 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 IMI Recruitment Policy
  • Seconded National Experts (SNEs) - Experts working for national, regional or local public administration, or an intergovernmental organisation, may become part of the IMI Programme Office as SNEs. SNEs contribute to our aims and goals and acquire knowledge and experience that will also be beneficial to their home administration, at the end of their secondment period. SNEs remain in the service of, and continue to be paid by, their employer throughout the period of secondment. Find out more about the rules governing the use of Seconded National Experts in IMI2 JU.

  • Trainees (stagiaires) - Through our Traineeship Scheme, 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. Further information on this opportunity can be found in the rules and procedures  of the our Traineeship Scheme.
