The Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine (CCNR) is an influential international organisation committed to sustainable inland navigation both of the Rhine and throughout Europe.
It has five Member States (Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland) and cooperates closely with the European Commission, the other river commissions and international organisations, as well as numerous approved non-governmental organisations.
The CCNR was urged by the relevant ministers of its Member States to press ahead with the development of digitalisation, automation and other modern technologies. The European Committee for drawing up standards in the field of inland navigation (CESNI) created by the CCNR will play a leading role in this. The Committee prepares proposals for standards in information technologies, especially for river information services (RIS), and promotes the proper implementation of these standards throughout Europe. It also provides advice and analysis in connection with information technology standards (including RIS), especially in support of political initiatives concerning digital tools in inland navigation and the phasing in of electronic documents. To coordinate this work and provide content-related support within its Secretariat in Strasbourg, comprising a 30-strong international team, the CCNR is looking for a Administrator (m/f) responsible for information technology (IT) related issues in the field of Inland Navigation.
The IT administrator (m/f) will have particular responsibility for:
Directing and monitoring the Committee in respect of information technology-related matters, specifically:
An initial 4-year contract
The IT Administrator will perform his or her duties reporting to the Chief Engineer.
Occasional travel within the Member States, or even Europe, is to be anticipated.
Monthly remuneration will depend on experience and will be negotiated with the Organisation.
Candidates are invited to submit their application (CV and covering letter) electronically before 12.08.2019 to the Secretariat of the CCNR for the attention of the Human Resources manager: firstname.lastname@example.org.
