Our staff

84% of our staff recommend working at GEVES. GEVES is a Public Interest Group founded from three partner organisations: The French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE), the French Ministry of Agriculture (MAAF), and the French Interprofessional Organisation for Seeds and Plants (Semae). In this capacity, GEVES is able to recruit INRAE agents. These agents work for GEVES and represent 60% of our staff, but INRAE remains their official employer.  As such, they have civil servant status. The remaining 40% of agents are private sector employees, and are employed directly by GEVES. With more than 260 agents with these two statuses, all spread out over 13 locations, GEVES benefits from a broad spectrum of expertise. Whether you are a civil servant agent or seeking employment, you can join GEVES in the context of professional mobility or external recruitment, either via the INRAE website or the Vacancies section of the GEVES website.
