Future career expectations

My interest in work at INL began after my nephew completed an internship at the INL and told me that it was the best place to work in Braga, due to its state -of-the-art facilities, atmosphere, tax benefits, etc.Although I use to attend the INL Open Day for several years, I thought it would be a big challenge for me, since my mother tongue is not used in INL. At the sime time I thought that stepping out of my comfort zone, and developing proficiency in this area is exactly what I need at this moment. So I went to the website and saw that it was possible to subscribe a job alert!

Why INL?

Future career expectations

My experience in Financial Project Management at University of Minho, has equipped me with the skills necessary to excel in a dynamic and challenging environment such as INL.

When this vacancy for Project Finance Management Officer position appeared I was very happy when I saw that I met the necessary qualifications and expertise to apply.

I am confident in my ability to contribute effectively in the development and implementation of appropriate policies and procedures under different public funding programs, and support INL’s mission and goals.
