What is Schuman Traineeship?

The goal of the Schuman traineeships is to contribute to EU citizens’ European education and vocational training and to provide an insight into the work of the European Parliament. It is a paid traineeship in the different Directorates-General that every day carry on the work which allow the European Parliament to operate serenely.

Personal growth

Working in an highly multicultural environment and next to highly qualified officers is a good opportunity of boosting your CV, skills and your professional career. 

EU Network

As a trainee you will get to live inside the EU system and experience in first person which kind of tasks and activities support the European Parliament in its functioning. 

Opportunities

During the traineeship you’ll investigate many opportunities, since you will get to know many professionals from different sectors and interact with a wide number of agents.

FAQs

If the first shortlisted candidate rejects the offer, fails to respond by the deadline set or is not eligible for the post, the next shortlisted candidate on the list will be contacted, and so on.

No. Given that we receive a large number of applications, the Traineeships Sector cannot notify candidates why their applications have not been accepted. The Traineeships Sector can neither inform candidates where they have not been shortlisted, nor can it advise candidates how to submit better applications in the future
