*just for Spanish applicants
EucA is proud to have partnered with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce as part of the Youth Guarantee framework to offer a paid traineeship in its Brussels office.
If you are pursuing your universities studies, you are residing in one of our member Halls of Residence and you are looking for a place where you can have a first professional experience, you are in the right place: EucA opens the doors of its Brussels office!
Our internship program mirrors our traineeship one (so please review tasks, profile and application process mentioned above), but on a different scale: a duration of minimum 160 hours, a selection process more lenient on the skills required and unfortunately no remuneration (per Belgian law, internships that are part of a university coursework cannot be paid). We offer a 200€ per month as reimbursement for transport and meal expenses. The duration of the internship can be agreed case by case.
We currently have 2 vacancies. There is no deadline to apply, the process is open until the vacancies are filled out.
