Graduate Careers with European Movement Ireland

European Movement (EM) Ireland has a long-running internship, or stage, programme, where final-year students or recent graduates undertake a placement for between three and six months in our offices in Dublin city centre.

At EM Ireland we take our Stage Programme very seriously and pride ourselves in providing an enriching and rewarding experience, while also teaching our interns, or stagiaires, the skills required for working in a busy office.

A stage is a great opportunity to learn about the EU through active engagement with our events, programmes and campaigns.

Interns are accepted into the EM Ireland Stage Programme on a rolling basis, depending on our workload, upcoming events and projects and general requirements.

If you would like to apply for a position on the EM Ireland Stage Programme, please email your CV, cover letter and details of your availability to

EM Ireland also provides guidance and advice for Irish students and graduates looking for jobs and internships in Europe. We send a weekly email bulletin of all the latest European job and internship opportunities to our subscribers. EM Ireland also produces The Green Book: An Irish Intern’s Guide to Living and Working in Brussels (and Beyond), a practical guide with tips and useful information on how to get an internship in the EU and life in Brussels and other European cities.

Copies of The Green Book are available from the EM Ireland offices.
