Following a successful trial period for intern Alice Vandekerkhove the EIIL is today announcing that it is extending its programme from September. Students from a technical discipline, and young professionals / recent graduates from any background are welcome to apply to join the programme (full position description below).
The EIIL offers formal and informal training of its interns together with the opportunity to attend occasional workshops on its programme alongside EIIL Members, and coaching during their task assignment. During Alice’s first trial period her task was to ‘establish an EIIL internship programme’. EIIL Director Steve Price said of the programme ‘this is a great opportunity for us to get a really good look at some very promising young talent. Watching Alice work alongside some of our usual workshop participants it was clear that she would fit in well in at least one of our member companies. As well as the useful work future interns will do for the EIIL, I believe we will be able to provide a unique service for Members in identifying promising talent for them to meet.’
The EIIL is dedicated to developing a sustainable supply of future leaders for technology-led and manufacturing industry in Europe.
Are you a young motivated, self-driven student/young professional and looking for an exciting internship in Brussels? The EIIL is the placement you are looking for.
Far from a “coffee and copy managing” internship, the EIIL is willing to give its interns meaningful assignments, tasks and real responsibility. Our philosophy: you learn best by doing.
The EIIL’s dynamic program of workshops and events offers a variety of possible tasks and a vibrant working environment, with the possibility to make valuable contacts through the EIIL’s members and network.
Assignments, projects and tasks will be designed together with the successful applicant in order to fit their needs and profile. Our interns will be self-starting and therefore will be encouraged to make their own interpretations and take decisions in order to meet their assignments objectives. But we also recognise that the internship is a training programme therefore experienced supervision and guidance will be provided when needed from amongst out Institute’s coaching staff. The Institute and the successful applicant will set up the assignment/task aims together and will engage in regular dialogue in order to meet these.
This will be a great opportunity for our interns to get a first step into Brussels’ professional environment and meet future leaders coming from all around Europe.
If you are ready to challenge yourself, the EIIL will be happy to help your development by providing you real opportunities and practical support.
