EU traineeship programmes offer a unique opportunity to get a taste of what an EU career is about.

Each year, more than 2,000 trainees increase their professional skills, expand their network and put academic theory into practice through the EU trainee programmes. Most of the EU institutions, bodies and agencies organise traineeships that usually last several months.

Traineeships offer a great insight into the work of the EU and are available in a wide range of fields such as competition law, human resources, environmental policy, communication and many more.

Each EU institution, body and agency individually runs its own traineeship selection procedures.

In the drop-down menu below, you can search available traineeship opportunities by selecting different EU institutions, bodies and agencies.
