Graduate traineeships 2020

This post-graduate traineeship programme is addressed mainly to recent university graduates, without excluding those who – in the framework of lifelong learning – have recently obtained their university qualification and are at the beginning of a new professional career.

Eurofound is an equal opportunities employer. Traineeships will be offered on the basis that the candidate has the ability to participate to the extent necessary and will benefit from the experience.

For further information on terms and conditions, interested applicants should read the Rules governing the Official Traineeship Scheme (2020).

The deadline for applications was 20 December 2019. Applications are valid until end of 2020. Shortlisted candidates may be contacted for telephone interviews, throughout the year, according to business needs.

NOTE: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, traineeship starting dates have been postponed to September at the earliest and further offers are unlikely to be made within 2020. The 2021 traineeship programme will be advertised in November 2020.
