Hiring

Skilled candidates wanted

In 2018 the number of staff members employed by the ITER Organization increased to 858, as skilled and qualified candidates joined from each of the seven ITER Members. With major machine assembly activities beginning next year, the project continues its focused search for talented engineers, scientists, project managers and associates.
The Deputy Director-General brought his message to the Korean Domestic Agency and the National Fusion Research Institute, as well as to KAERI, the Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute, and Korea's industrial partner KEPCO. For each stop, the recruitment message was the same: ''We are looking for the best-qualified candidates. Come and join us!'' (Click to view larger version...)

ITER's multinational collaboration model is designed to tap the expertise and experience of every Member. For staff positions posted to the ITER Jobs page, the Human Resources Department works closely with ITER Domestic Agencies on recruitment outreach, using platforms such as LinkedIn to encourage the widest possible application pool and developing a number of strategies tailored to the specificities of local recruitment markets.

In parallel, the promotion of two non-staff categories—the ITER Scientist Fellows and the ITER Project Associates—helps to fill the project's needs for specialized talent by encouraging experts from the Members' science, technological and industrial communities to contribute.

Particular effort has been made in recent years to attract staff from under-represented ITER Members, who have only 25 to 50 staff on site (less than 9 percent of the total).

Last year, for example, promotional videos were released to encourage applications from candidates in India and Japan (scroll down here to see them), and a third is under development for Russia.
ITER Deputy Director-General Eisuke Tada also recently visited Korea to emphasize the advantages of well-balanced participation by all Members. "The human resources of the project are key to the latest project completion statistics, which show that 60 percent of the total work scope to First Plasma has been achieved. We would like to see the participation of experienced engineers and scientists from all under-represented Members to increase, and encourage all qualified applicants to apply through their Domestic Agencies."
