Israel J., Team Leader at the Field Security Division of the EEAS

Picture of Israel

“I currently work at the European External Action Service (EEAS) in the Field Security Division. My Division is responsible for providing security services to EU Delegations around the world. I’m the team leader for Asia & Pacific region. My main role consists of coordinating a team of security professionals located in Headquarters (HQ) and 15 Regional Security Officers, posted in Delegations from Afghanistan to Fiji.  In the past, I was also deployed in EU Delegations as Regional Security Officer. I have a Master’s Degree in Law and have also pursued several technical studies on security management, including several security training courses during my former life as a civil servant in the Spanish military and police. What I like the most in my job is that I am able to provide tangible and direct support to so many colleagues posted in Delegations, allowing them to operate safely in the field and to achieve EU goals. My job is highly demanding but satisfaction for delivering is always a plus! There are many advantages to working in an international environment. The one that I like the most is that in my 6 years in the EU institutions I have travelled to almost 15 countries, some of them I would have never had visited otherwise. I  encourage security professionals to apply for this job. You will have opportunities to work both in HQ and in the field, in any of our Delegations around the world, having a real impact on the safety and security of our colleagues.“
