  • Participate in meetings with European transport stakeholders.
  • Report from committee meetings in the European Parliament, European stakeholder organisations and conferences in Brussels.
  • Ongoing administrative tasks.

The ideal candidate:

  • Is interested in politics at the European and national level.
  • Is currently undertaking a degree related to social sciences, economy, law or related.
  • Can express him/herself well orally and in writing, is fluent in English and one or more Scandinavian languages. Knowledge of other EU languages is a plus.
  • Thrive on handling large, long-term project assignments.
  • Is comfortable with busy and often hectic days with a variety of tasks.

We offer:

  • Coverage of travel costs, as well as a round trip during your stay.
  • Practical experience of working in the EU system. 
  • An interesting, dynamic, informal and international workplace with the opportunity to challenge yourself in national and European contexts.
