Eastern Partnership Internship Programme funded by the Eastern Partnership Technical Assistance Trust Fund
The European Investment Bank seeks talented young individuals who can help to contribute towards improving people’s lives by promoting economic and social progress in the Eastern Partnership countries.
Objectives of the Programme
The goal of the Eastern Partnership Internship Programme is to offer successful candidates an opportunity to improve their skills as well as the experience of working in an international multicultural environment.
This Programme, funded by the Eastern Partnership Technical Assistance Trust Fund, will look for candidates specialising in a field relevant to international investment and development banking, such as finance (in particular project finance, SME financing, credit and risk analysis) or economics (micro/macroeconomics, development, statistics, job market analysis) as well as environment, engineering (ports, roads, energy, etc.) or urban planning.
Eligibility to Apply
The Internship Programme is open to students who are nationals of the Eastern partnership countries (Azerbaijan -subject to signed Framework Agreement - , Armenia, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine).
Candidates must have a degree from or be in the final year of a course at an institute of higher education. Generally, successful candidates will have enrolled on a graduate study programme (be pursuing a master’s degree) and already have some work experience.
In addition, candidates must meet the following criteria:
- be proficient in English and/or French; knowledge of other East European languages will be considered an advantage;
- have demonstrated an ability to conduct analytical work, exercise good judgment and work as part of a team;
- have less than two years work experience.
What are we offering?
We offer an opportunity for professional development and global experience in an international environment. The EIB will pay a flat rate monthly allowance to assist in their living expenses and will provide reimbursement of travel expenses (one round trip from/to the point of origin/residence for up to 6 months internship or two in the case of 10 to 12 month assignments). Interns will be responsible for their own accommodation costs.
Each successful candidate will commit themselves to a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 12 months in the Programme, to be spent at the EIB Headquarters in Luxembourg. For those interns committing themselves to a stay of 10-12 months there is a possibility of undertaking two assignments in two different units at the Bank. As a rule candidates can only apply for a position in a country of which they are not a resident/national.
If you wish to apply for an Eastern Partnership Internship in the EIB, please view Current Vacancies and respond to one of the Eastern Partnership internship opportunities by submitting your application on-line.
Only those identified as suitable for an assignment will be contacted to discuss their application and availability.
The final selection of candidates is made by a panel.
