EU citizenship is not obligatory (a small number of places are reserved for non-EU citizens), but knowledge of two EU languages is required. Work experience and postgraduate education is a plus, but not an eligibility criterion.

Paid: Yes. €1,220.78 and travel allowance - The Bluebook Traineeship is organized twice a year.
