Paid Traineeships In The European Commission

University graduates from all over the world are welcome to apply for the paid European Commission traineeship. It helps candidates get hands-on experience in the international and multicultural environment. Registrations are now open for the March 2018 traineeship session. The deadline for applications is on 31st of August.

A traineeship at the European Commission can be an important enrichment to further their career. Trainees work all over the European Commission. Each batch of trainees organises a huge range of non-formal learning, social activities, from football to wine-tasting and much in between – in true bureaucratic fashion, each with its own organising committee.

The content of the job largely depends on the service candidates are assigned to. they may, for example, work in the field of competition law, human resources, environmental policy, etc. 

A typical trainee’s daily work mainly consists of attending and organising meetings, working groups, forums, public hearings; researching and compiling documentation, reports; running projects.

A paid traineeship of 5 months starts on either 1st March or 1st October. Trainees will receive a monthly grant of 1,159.40 € as of 1st March 2017 and reimbursement of travel expenses. Accident and health insurance can also be provided.
