The European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EuFMD)


Interested in improving animal health through international action?
Join us at the EuFMD!

We are an intergovernmental body based within the Food-and-Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN-FAO), at its Headquarters in Rome. Our activities help to reduce the risk of Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) and similar transboundary animal diseases (”FAST diseases”) in over 80 countries in Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Asia. The EuFMD works through the veterinary services (VS) of those countries in close co-ordination with FAO, OIE and European Commission (EC) as part of a coordinated regional and global programme. FAST diseases are an extreme test of resilience in such countries and a range of support is provided, from technical assistance with surveillance and control strategies through to innovative e-learning delivered to mobile phones for field workers. EuFMD’s training programme is under a high demand and has expanded rapidly. This generates the need for additional persons to help the maintain quality and increase the outreach and impact.

Positions will be filled on a full time (Rome or Home based) or daily-rate basis (e.g. 30-150 days per year). The remuneration is dependent on experience [to a maximum of 90,000€ per annum and according to FAO rules and regulations].

The positions re-open every six-months, so do apply!
