You are on a temporary assignment
Each year, INRAE has more than 3,000 contractual staff on its payroll, including 500 doctoral candidates. A charter on the recruitment, hosting and support of contractual staff is the foundation of the Institute’s human resources policy. Here are a few guidelines to help you better understand the administrative framework.
Updated on 02 January 2020
You are hired on a contract governed by public law
INRAE is a public research establishment under the dual authority of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Research. Contractual staff are hired on contracts governed by public law.
Your working conditions are the same as those of tenured staff (working hours, public holidays, health and safety rules etc.) and you are given the same equipment.
All contractual staff hired at INRAE have a work contract and social protection.
You will be remunerated according to your level of qualification, experience and responsibilities. You have the right to training (subject to length of service), the right to organise, and access to benefits offered through the Institute’s social policy. Your duties and obligations are comparable to those of tenured staff.
Internal charter on contractual staff
INRAE has a charter that reflects its efforts to ensure responsible management of its contractual staff and reaffirms the Institute’s commitment to the values of solidarity, mutual respect and collective action for the sake of equality and respect of rules and individuals.
This charter aims to promote the employability of contractual staff with a professional experience at INRAE that supports skills development. It applies to all contractual staff, regardless of the reason for their recruitment under contract.
This document is divided into four commitments:
1. A clear and reciprocal commitment framework
2. Transparent and comprehensible processes and decisions
3. Comprehensive integration and support throughout the contract period
4. Support at the end of the contract period to strengthen employability
Your skills passport
The skills passport follows on from the internal charter on contractual staff and is intended to assist employees in their career development throughout their time at INRA, help them formalise their skills, facilitate and enrich their professional reviews carried out with their manager, and prepare their future.
The skills passport is available for employees with a contract of longer than six months.
It is regularly updated throughout the contract period based on factual information about the employee’s experience. It belongs to the employee. S/he completes and updates it with his/her accomplishments, training and experiences.
