Internships are open to anyone from an EU member state (or from a candidate/potential candidate country). We will also consider applicants from outside these countries who have a particular wish to work in a centre that specialises in European information.

Applicants must be proficient in the English language (speaking and writing).

We are ideally looking for candidates who can demonstrate:

  • a good existing knowledge of the EU and Europe in general
  • a good existing awareness of information sources relating to these topics
  • good IT skills and familiarity with social media formats such as Facebook
  • an outgoing and friendly manner
  • interest or experience in working in the media or in other aspects of information and communication.

We welcome applications from students studying in Cardiff who wish to gain some part-time work experience in an environment with a strong focus on Europe and the European Union.

It is essential that you receive an ERASMUS+ grant or equivalent form of funding.


Any initial application to us should contain a CV and motivational letter explaining why you want an internship specifically with us.

Please include the following information in your application:

  • when you would like to visit

  • English language proficiency
  • your motivation for choosing the Centre for your internship
