Internships

Internships

The Eurojust internship programme is an excellent opportunity to get to know and sample life inside an EU agency. Currently enrolled university students, recent graduates and other young people regularly undertake internships with Eurojust at its premises in The Hague.

Eurojust offers internships across a wide range of specialisations, not just legal work. Depending on your educational background and interests, you might find yourself working with your home country’s National Desk, for example, or with an administrative unit such as Events or Corporate Communications.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, all internships are currently on hold until further notice. As soon as the internship selection process is resumed, an announcement will be published on the Eurojust website.

What to expect

Whatever your role, you can expect challenging hands-on work, and the chance to put knowledge and skills gained during your studies to good use. An internship with Eurojust is also an excellent learning opportunity. You will work with and observe leading specialists from across Europe, gaining valuable experience and skills that will set you up for your future career.

Internship positions typically last between three and six months, beginning on either the 1st or the 16th day of the month. Please note that internships are unpaid and participants do not receive any medical insurance or reimbursement for travel or accommodation expenses.

Eligibility

To take part in an internship with Eurojust, you must meet the following criteria:

  • you have reached the age of maturity in your country of origin;

  • you have completed or are currently undertaking a level of education equivalent to university studies or vocational training relevant to the tasks of the internship at Eurojust or, alternatively, have relevant professional experience; and

  • you have a good level of written and spoken English (minimum level B2 as defined in the Common European Framework of Reference).

How to apply

Interested applicants are invited to submit a completed application form to internship@eurojust.europa.eu. Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered.

The application will be reviewed by the Human Resources Unit and forwarded to the appropriate National Desk or administrative unit. You will be contacted by Eurojust if a suitable match is found.
