ECOS is looking for one or more experts in the field of Steel as part of our work on Energy Intensive Industries to represent and defend environmental interests in the development of standards. Our experts provide us with technical and scientific input and represent us in technical standardisation and policy discussions.

As part of global efforts to combat climate change, the European Steel industry is required to undergo great transformation in order to contribute to the decarbonisation process, and as part of this reducing emissions through innovations in energy and improving material circularity will be key, especially in the sectors which account for the largest share of demand including construction, mechanical machinery, steel based products and automotive, therefore experience in and understanding of these sectors is preferred.

Eligible experts will have in-depth knowledge in several or all of the following topics:

  • Steel production methods and processes;
  • Steel product test methods and performance declarations;
  • EU/global steel product markings, namely steel product grades;
  • Use of scrap steel in steel production;
  • Processes for the reuse, recycling and remanufacturing of steel;
  • And the use and recovery of steel in construction.

Please see the full overview below, send your CV and cover letter outlining your motivation and demonstrating your suitability to support and represent ECOS to michael.neaves@ecostandard.org. Applications will be assessed by the secretariat on a rolling basis, applying ECOS procurement policy. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
