Did you know the European Parliament offers traineeships to young people? You can choose from several work places: Luxembourg, Brussels, Strasbourg or an EP Information Office (EPIO) in any EU Member State. If you choose an Information Office, you must be able to speak the language of the chosen country fluently.

If you are interested in a traineeship at the European Parliament Office in Ireland, you need to apply through Parliament's traineeship office, specifying your preference for this office on your application form.
Traineeships with MEPs and Political Groups in the European Parliament
Some Members of the European Parliament and political groups offer traineeships to students and graduates. These traineeships are not part of the official European Parliament programme and you should contact the MEP or political group directly.
