The European Maritime Safety Agency is a dynamic and exciting place to work. We look for outstanding candidates from many different kinds of backgrounds – maritime experts, of course, but also administrators, legal experts, and IT professionals. Working here is rewarding; if you join us, you’ll make a real contribution to building a stronger, safer, more sustainable maritime sector in Europe. You’ll be based in our headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal, and you’ll be working alongside a talented team of dedicated professionals recruited from all across the EU.

Women in Maritime

Women make up half of the world’s available talent pool, yet within the transport sector in general, and the maritime sector in particular, they are still underrepresented. Within the broader transport sector in the EU, in 2018 only 22% of transport workers were women while the EU average female participation in the total workforce was 46%. Here at EMSA, we are working to improve the gender balance within the maritime sector through a series of initiatives.
