The European Railway Agency fosters the exchange of professional experience in European policies regarding the railway sector by temporarily assigning expert from the Member States.
Therefore, the Agency looks for Seconded National Experts in order to benefit from high level of their professional knowledge and experience. The Agency has adopted Decision 237/2009 on the policy and the procedures governing the engagement and the use of Seconded National Experts.
Seconded National Experts are seconded to ERA while remaining in the service of their national employer. Secondment is not equivalent to employment at ERA, nor does it lead to employment by the Authority.
SNEs receive from the Authority a daily subsistence allowance per calendar day as well as a monthly travel allowance for the duration of their secondment. Candidates for an SNE post must be supported by their national authorities or governments. The duration of a secondment to ERA is limited to a maximum of 4 years. The place of secondment is Valenciennes.
