Marta joined the European Parliament's Office in Scotland in November 2010 after working for almost three years as a Procurement Officer at the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg. Since her EU career started with a traineeship in the European Parliament, followed by a contract in the Contract Team of the EP External Translation Unit, she returned to the first institution. Marta is responsible for education, citizenship and outreach and organising some of the events. She also uses her previous experience in launching procurement procedures in various areas covered by the Office. Marta's interests include modern dance, theatre and music. Edinburgh seems to be a perfect place to pursue these passions.
