Traineeships at the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EUROFOUND) involve work experience in the Foundation’s departments and are offered throughout the year.
The traineeship at the Foundation is open to young university graduates, without excluding those who, in the framework of lifelong learning, have recently obtained a university diploma and are at the beginning of a new professional career.
The traineeships last six months, which may be extended for up to a further 6 months.
Applicants from Member States must have a very good knowledge of at least two EU languages, of which one should be English, the working language of Eurofound.
Candidates must have completed the first cycle of a higher education course (university education) and obtained a full degree or its equivalent by the closing date for applications. They should have not already benefited from in-service training in another European institution or had any kind of employment within a European institution or body.
Trainees are selected from among nationals of the EU Member States.
A training grant of 1,456 Euro per month is awarded to the trainee. The grant is related to the one established by the European Commission for their own trainees. A travel allowance is available and equally a supplement for disabled trainees.
