Traineeships

 
 
 
The S&D Group offers many traineeship opportunities to involve young people in the work of the S&D Group and the European Parliament and to promote the integration of citizens across Europe. All our trainees receive a grant and working opportunities include monitoring the work of parliamentary committees, working with the press team, participating in the S&D Group’s events, etc.

We take on approximately 25 young people at a time for traineeships which last three to five months (depending on the programme) and begin in mid-February or mid-September.

The candidates for a traineeship can apply either to the Francis Vals fund and maximum of ONE other specific fund or to a maximum of TWO different specific funds.

Candidates for the traineeship must:

  • be nationals of a European Union member state, a candidate country for EU accession or a country which has a partnership agreement with the S&D Group
  • be aged between 18 and 35 years
  • share European socialist and democratic values
  • have a perfect knowledge of one of the official languages of the European Union and in addition a very good knowledge of one of the working languages of the S&D Group (English, French, Spanish or German)
