EMI Stagiaire Placement

Are you passionate about current affairs, politics and European relations? Are you seeking to supplement your academic experience in a dynamic, real-world environment, where no two days are ever the same? Applications to the EM Ireland Stage are now open.


About EM Ireland

Founded in 1954, European Movement (EM) Ireland is the longest established Irish NGO working on European affairs. An independent, not-for-profit, membership organisation, EM Ireland works to develop the connection between Ireland and Europe through advocacy campaigns, education programmes, training courses, information briefings and networking events.


About EM Ireland Stage Programme Placements

  • EM Ireland Stagiaries receive in-depth induction training, a personal development plan, ongoing career coaching and mentorship, networking opportunities and regular support from the EM Ireland Senior Management team.
  • Stagiaires learn directly from experienced members of the team, but can be afforded opportunities to learn new skills in areas such as policy & research, education, events, communications and outreach.


Here’s what past participants in the programme had to say about their experience:

“My experience with European Movement Ireland has undoubtably already enhanced my career prospects and put me in a better position to compete for Jobs in this field. It has also set a standard in my mind as to how an organization should be run and how senior staff should treat new team members. If I am in a position of seniority in future, I hope to give as much time, attention, and assistance to a new team member as you have all given me.”
