Welcome to Women in Space Kiruna


We meet on May 10 at 12.20-13.20 at Space Campus (Room D1) or online

Join us and our key note speaker Lucy van der Tas for a unique opportunity to hear what it is like to work for ESA from someone who has been there for nearly 4 decades. Lucy joined ESA in 1983 and now she works in the Human Resources Department and is based at ESA’s technical centre in the Netherlands. From 2010 to 2020, she was responsible for recruitment and career management for one of the largest ESA engineering directorates. In October 2020, she took up the role of Head of Talent Acquisition and, together with a small team, is now responsible for promoting ESA as an employer.
