Launch your career in the heart of Europe
For 2021/2022, six talented candidates will be invited to join the EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) trainee programme for 11 months from September 2021 to July 2022. The traineeship provides young professionals and recent graduates from the EEA EFTA States (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) a unique opportunity to experience and participate in the work of ESA and the inner workings of the EEA Agreement.
ESA monitors compliance with the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA Agreement) in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, enabling those States to participate in the Internal Market of the European Union.
ESA is an international organisation, independent of the States, which safeguards the rights of individuals and undertakings under the EEA Agreement, ensuring free movement, fair competition and control of state aid. ESA’s work helps remove barriers to trade and open up new opportunities to over 500 million Europeans, creating jobs and growth and adding to the international competitiveness of the States.
ESA is based in Brussels. It currently employs staff members of 19 nationalities. ESA is led by a College consisting of three Members, each appointed for a period of four years by the three participating EFTA States.
A traineeship at ESA is a great way to kick-start your career. Whether you are pursuing a career in the public or the private sector, at home or internationally, the experience will prove beneficial. Trainees take part in the daily work of the different departments. They gain valuable work experience by assisting case handlers with the ongoing activities of ESA, get hands-on knowledge of the functioning of the EEA Agreement and have the opportunity to live and work in a thriving multicultural environment.
We are looking for engaged young professionals or recent graduates from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, who have completed or who will complete their degree in law by 1 September 2021. Strong academic results and an interest or specialisation in EEA/EU matters are required, as is an excellent command of English, the working language of ESA. Extracurricular activities and community involvement are rated positively.
Deadline for applications: 7 March 2021 (midnight CET) Start Date: 1 September 2021
