ARE YOU INTERESTED IN AN INTERNSHIP AT THE EOC EU OFFICE?

Created on Friday, 09 Apr 2021 14:35:53

The EOC EU Office provides university students and recent graduates with the opportunity to complete an internship for a period of 3 to 6 months. Interns will get an in-depth insight into EU sport policy, will contribute to daily and long-term tasks of the Office, and will thus contribute to promoting the interests of the organised sport movement in the EU. The EOC EU Office accepts applications from both students of master programmes and recent graduates.

Requirements

  • Undergraduate degree in political science, European studies, international relations, economics, law or sport management;
  • Proficient language skills in English. German and French are a plus;
  • Knowledge of the EU institutional framework. Knowledge of EU law and interest in European politics are an asset;
  • Knowledge of European Sports structures;
  • Ability to work in an international environment.

Activities

One of the main missions of the EOC EU Office is to analyse, evaluate, and assess the impact of EU policies and legislation on the organised sport in Europe, and to promote and defend its interests therein. Consequently, the tasks of the interns will be to assist the EOC EU Office team with monitoring European legislative procedures and policy developments, and analysing the impact of EU policies on sport. The interns will also support the Office with the management of possible EU-funded projects and with advising partners on EU funding opportunities.

In their daily activities, the interns will be in regular contact with the partner organisations of the EOC EU Office, including National Olympic Committees and European/international sport federations.

Interns could expect to attend sport-related events, conferences and meetings organised by the EU institutions and other stakeholders in Brussels. In addition, they will assist the EOC EU Office with the organisation of its own events and meetings.

How to apply?

The EOC EU Office offers internships of 3 to 6 months in two periods: September to January, and February to July. Interested students and recent graduates are requested to select one of the two periods and to apply before the applicable deadline. As a general rule, the EOC EU Office does not accept internships for the month of August.
