Public Regulated Services (PRS) Access Officer – European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA)

The European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) has set up a selection procedure that aims to establish a reserve list for:

Public Regulated Services (PRS) Access Officer

(Vacancy Reference Number: GSA/2018/554)
The PRS Access Officer reports to the GSMC Operations Manager. The overall  purpose of the PRS Access Officer is to ensure the provision of services to the Competent PRS Authorities (CPA) in Member States as part of the overall Galileo PRS provision.
The jobholder’s tasks and responsibilities shall in principal include (without limitation) and subject to adjustment by his/her reporting line:
  • Ensuring the timely execution of Member States PRS requests and orders
  • Ensuring that authorised users are able to access and use PRS in accordance with their needs
  • Supervising the PRS status of the Galileo system using dedicated GSMC security tools
  • Providing advice to Member States CPAs in the operation of the PRS, including providing advice on how to achieve their goals or in escalating requests to the GSMC analysis team
  • Investigating PRS anomalies reported by CPAs according to procedures and their resolution to ensure PRS delivery
  • Investigating any degradation of the PRS identified either by the Galileo System or external stakeholders
  • Ensuring that the GSMC Service Desk functions are delivered
  • Supporting the level 1 maintenance of the Galileo Security Facility (GSF) system
  • Supporting the ramping-up of the GSMC PRS operations in terms of operational procedures development and Galileo Security Facility (GSF) equipment validation for the new releases of operational equipment
  • During times of crisis, providing advice to EU decision taking bodies on the continuity of the PRS, proposing actions required to maintain the service, supporting Galileo Crisis Management and implementing the instructions
    issued by the relevant authorities
The jobholder will be required to work as part of a 24/7 shift working roster, when demand for GSMC PRS services requires it, in line with the GSA’s shift working policy.
He/she will be required to be trained and certified in his/her operational role and will be required to maintain his/her certification as part of the ongoing duties.
In addition, he/she may be required to participate to an stand-by duty roster in line with the GSA’s applicable rules.
Prior to certification and operations, the role will be primarily a normal ‘day-time’ job contributing to the development of GSMC operations. Until the start of
shift operations, the role will ensure the delivery of the initial PRS Service. Further, the jobholder will contribute to the development of GSMC operational procedures and will be expected to contribute to the GSMC operations validation process.
With a view of optimising the usage of resources or in times of crisis, the Staff Member may be required to perform the duties of a Security Incident Handler. To that extent, the required training will be organised by the GSA and the jobholder will need to pass the relevant operational evaluations for both roles in order to remain qualified for the post.
Frequent missions and possible deployment to GSMC Backup Site, and occasional ones to Belgium (Brussels) and Czech Republic (Prague) are foreseen for this post.
Location: Saint-Germain-en-Laye (France)
Deadline for application: 09/03/2018 11:59a.m. (CET)
