The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has published a job offer for a successor to executive director Patrick Goudou, effective September 1, next year. The agency seeks a citizen of a EU member state or Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland with “a proven track record of at least five years of high-level management
 at large organizations, experience working with EU institutions and member states and a sound knowledge of aviation transport legislation.”

EASA has set an application deadline of October 2 and plans to name the new executive director next March. Goudou has nearly reached the end of his second five-year term, having served at the helm since the agency’s establishment in 2003.
