Administration and technical services
ESA employs administrative services staff in all areas of the organisation and in all its establishments. Typically these staff members have credentials as secretaries, many of whom are qualified to work in foreign languages, or they have concluded relevant post-secondary vocational training in the administrative or commercial field.
At ESA, some examples of jobs in this category include secretaries, assistant project controllers, assistant contracts officers or administrative support staff.
Technical services staff members are deployed as logistics staff or as technicians. Depending on the area of deployment, they are either certified technicians or have other skills and qualifications, which enable them to meet the requirements of their support activities.
