Seconded National Experts (SNEs)

Seconded national experts (SNEs or Experts National Detach├ęs, ENDs, in French) are national or international civil servants or persons employed in the private sector who are working temporarily for the Commission. Their task is to assist Commission officials, carrying out the duties assigned to them under the work programme drawn up when they apply for the secondment.

The purpose of secondments is two-fold: to bring to the Commission the experience of issues dealt with in a national administration of the SNE and for him/her to take back home the knowledge of Community issues acquired during the secondment.

The rules governing SNEs working for the Commission include details concerning the rights and obligations, social security, working hours, leave and absences and the allowances and reimbursements to which an SNE may be entitled.

Information about career and benefits of SNEs as well as the published vacant posts are available on Eurostat's website . The vacant posts are also available at the Permanent Representations.
