Traineeships at Economic and Social Committee
The Economic and Social Committee (ESC) is an advisory body that gives Europe’s economic and social partners (i.e. employers, trade unions, representatives of small businesses, farmers’ associations, consumers, etc.) the chance to issue their formal opinion on the EU policies.
Twice a year the ESC organizes in-service training periods of long (five months) and short duration (one to three months).
The main aims of the in-service training are:
to conclude and apply the knowledge acquired by the trainee during his/her studies or work;
to provide the trainee with practical knowledge of the working of the ESC’s various departments;
to enable the trainees to gain experience through contacts established in day-to-day work.
