EFI is now seeking a Francophone legality assurance expert

The European Forest Institute (EFI) is an international organisation with 21 European member countries, and 126 associate member institutions. EFI headquarters are located in Joensuu, Finland. EFI has several regional offices across Europe.
EFI’s Policy and Governance Programme is hosting and managing the EU FLEGT Facility, which has the role of supporting the implementation of the EU Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan. The Facility is funded by the European Commission with co-funding from the Governments of Finland and the UK.
The Facility aims at having reforms adopted that improve governance and the functioning of markets, ensuring that illegal logging and associated trade which adversely affect the poor are adequately tackled. The Facility’s key work areas are (i) supporting the negotiation and implementation of Voluntary Partnership Agreements (VPAs), bilateral trade agreements between the EU and timber product exporting partner countries, including analytical studies guiding the VPA processes and a communication portfolio, and (ii) implementing the regional FLEGT Asia support programme.
To reinforce the Facility’s team, EFI intends to engage a francophone Legality Assurance Expert. She/he will report to the Facility’s senior Legality Assurance (LAS) Expert.
