2014 Eastern Partnership Internship Programme

Venue: Luxembourg
Period: 3-12 months
Application deadline: February 28, 2014
Conditions: paid



The European Investment Bank (EIB) is offering work experience for young graduates from the Eastern Partnership countries under its Internship Programme funded by the Eastern Partnership Technical Assistance Trust Fund (EPTATF).
The goal of this multiannual Programme is to offer successful candidates an opportunity to improve their skills as well as the experience of working in an international multicultural environment.
It is open only to students who are nationals of the Eastern Partnership Countries (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine), and who have a University degree from one of these countries.
To be eligible, candidates must have a degree from or be in the final year of a course at an institute of higher education. Successful candidates will have enrolled on a graduate study programme (be pursuing a master's degree) and already have some work experience.
The EIB is looking for talented young individuals who wish to contribute towards improving people’s lives by promoting economic and social progress in the Eastern Partnership countries. The Programme seeks 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 the environment, engineering (ports, roads, energy, etc.) or urban planning.



Candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • be a national of an Eastern Partnership Country;
  • hold a degree from or be in the last year of a university programme in an Eastern Partnership Country;
  • be proficient in English and/or French; knowledge of other East European languages will be considered as an advantage;
  • have demonstrated an ability to conduct analytical work, to exercise good judgement and to work as part of a team;
  • some work experience will be considered as an advantage (usually no more than two years).
  • have no prior professional experience or in-house training for more than six weeks with other EU institutions, agencies or bodies


All interns will receive a monthly stipend, insurance and travel costs. Interns will be responsible for their own accommodation costs.
Each successful candidate commits to a minimum of three months and a maximum of 12 months in the Programme, to be spent at the EIB Headquarters in Luxembourg or at one of the External Offices.
The Internship offers are accessible via the EIB Jobs page. Interested candidates must submit their applications online. The application period for the Programme is 13 January to 28 February 2014.
