Traineeship programme at the BEREC Office

              * The Call for Trainees 2020 is now closed. The next call will be published in spring 2021 *

Once a year the Agency for Support for BEREC (BEREC Office) invites interested candidates to submit their applications for the selection of trainees for the BEREC Office Traineeship Programme.

The candidates can apply for 6 profiles, as follows:

  • Communication;

  • Benchmarking;

  • Human Resources;

  • ICT;

  • Procurement and Finance;

  • Policies and administration.

Candidates must apply by filling in the online application form and submitting

  1. A covering letter outlining their reasons for applying;
  2. A CV drafted using the Europass CV format.

Applicants are explicitly requested to highlight and give a brief account of their experience and expertise relevant to the traineeship. Applicants are invited to indicate, apart from the duration of studies, the legal length of the diplomas that they hold.

Following inclusion on a shortlist, and based on the interest of the service, candidates might be offered a traineeship position in a profile other than the one for which they have applied, provided that the tasks linked with the two profiles are compatible.

Notwithstanding the above, candidates willing to apply for more than one profile must submit a separate application for each profile.

Trainees receive a monthly grant calculated at the beginning of each calendar year and published on the BEREC Office website. Training periods are initially offered for a period of six months with the option for prolongation up to twelve months.

The calls for expression of interest will provide specific indications on the closing date for applications and the selection criteria.

The indicative starting date of the traineeship is 1 October each year.
