Advocacy for multitalented professionals

Specia – The Experts and Managerial Professionals Association is a trade union for multitalented professionals in administration, development and planning. We monitor the rights of multitalented professionals throughout their careers and build a more equal and humanely sustainable working life.

Our website is being updated during 2023. In the future, we will provide you with even better services also in English.
