Other work opportunities

ECHA may sometimes require additional temporary staff who will be hired through our contract with temporary work agencies based in Finland.

The temporary work agencies included in the framework contract in cascade are ManpowerGroup Oy, Adecco Oy and Opteam Oy. ECHA will first request Manpower to provide the necessary interim staff and, if they cannot fulfil the request, then turn to Adecco and Opteam. Follow the vacancies announced on their websites and stay up to date on the available opportunities!

Those hired will work at ECHA’s premises but will be employed by the temporary work agency, not ECHA.
