Detailed description of project Back

The global objective of the assignment is to support the EU in defining an appropriate and balanced salary and benefits package for national staff in EDF-funded projects and programmes on the basis of an empirical salary survey, in relation to the content of the respective job profiles.

The specific objectives include:
