Traineeships and student summer jobs at the European Investment Bank


The European Investment Bank offers summer jobs to students and internships to university graduates. The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the European Union's financing institution. Its task is to contribute towards the integration, balanced development and economic and social cohesion of the Member Countries.

The departments of the EIB take on well qualified trainees on an ad-hoc basis to carry out a one to five month traineeship following a defined trainee programme, mainly in areas of finance, audit, economy, engineering and the general secretariat.

The number of traineeships at the Bank are very limited and are designed to meet the needs of the departments, the latter of which also determine the length of the training period.
Training advisers designated by host departments will guide the trainees in their work programmes and be responsible for supervising their training.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Trainees shall be selected from nationals of the Member States. A limited number of nationals of non-Member countries may be accepted.
  • Applicants must have a thorough command of one of the Bank's internal working languages - French/English.
  • Preference shall be given to applicants who have completed or started a course on European integration or a field relating to the EIB's activities as the European Union's financing institution.
    Trainees may be granted an allowance. The Director of humain resources will determine the amount. Applicants with disabilities may receive a supplementary allowance.

    There is no deadline for submissions. The traineeship specifications and the application forms can be obtained from: >​
