The Internship Scheme in European Union Institutions will go ahead in 2021. The scheme initially began in 2018 in order to provide work placements opportunities for graduates in the specialised subject field of translation and proofreading.

This year it is hoped that ten graduates will be appointed and undertake work experience in the autumn. Eight of the graduates will assist in the translation of European Union legislation and laws – primarily the acquis communautaire – during the work placement. Two of the graduates will undertake work in the proofreading of Irish language documents under the supervision of the Publications Office or the European Parliament. An allowance of €2,000 per month will be made available for the internships for a period of ten months.

Announcing this year’s scheme, Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD said:

“It is an honour for me that my Department has the ability to run a scheme like this again this year, especially as we endeavour to reach the target with regard to the derogation of use of the Irish language as an official and working language before the end of this year. This scheme will be help to fill vacancies in Europe and it is an excellent opportunity for graduates to secure work experience in these areas of work in the European Institutions.

The Minister of State Jack Chambers said:

“This scheme has been very successful since it was established in 2018. It provides young people with an opportunity to experience working life in Europe, to receive training from the institutions, and to add to their skills, providing them with improved prospects in recruitment competitions in the future. Already quite a few of the interns have secured other jobs in the Institutions after completing this internship and I hope that this year’s interns will have great success also.”
