Internship Opportunities

EIIL Internship Announcement

The European Institute for Industrial Leadership (or EIIL) is a non-profit, non-advocacy, association of industrial companies from the chemical, plastics, engineering and construction sectors. We help our members research issues which their future leaders will face, and we help their future leaders to develop the skills needed to tackle these issues.

The EIIL has a long history of collaboration with student organisations and is proud to have partnerships with JEE (formerly JADE), BEST, ESN, EYE. 

EIIL’s Director Steve Price has been on the Advisory Board of the European Confederation of Junior Enterprises since 2007, and was appointed to the advisory Board of the World Council for Junior Enterprise JE Global in 2018. 

Current opening: Communication Intern (paid)

Internship Description

The EIIL is currently seeking students or recent graduates available to work at least 20 hours a week for a period of 3 to 6 months. Days and schedule are flexible; extensive remote working is possible. This internship will suit self-starters and candidates eager to learn.

  • Candidates should have knowledge, experience and interest in mass communications, content creation and management, with design, social media and video skills.
  • Familiarity with online event promotion, web marketing strategies would be an advantage.
  • Actual work, and workload, would be determined based on interest, availability and capability of the intern as well as EIIL needs.

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 intern should be able to work without direct supervision. They would be expected to contribute their own skills and creativity to the best of their ability, under task and process direction from the ‘owners’ of the various projects about which they would be communicating.  

Regular virtual meetings will be organised during the week to ensure sufficient guidance is provided by the EIIL project owners and/or Executive Director to ensure contributions from the intern are in line with our communications strategy.

What we offer

Compensation would be determined based on availability and capability of the intern as well as EIIL need. The compensation offered would be under the Belgian ‘convention d’immersion professionnelle’ recognising the training nature of the role. The EIIL offers the maximum monthly financial compensation permitted, which is 815 euros full-time, with part-time assignment being compensated pro-rata. The assignment is for a maximum duration of six months.

Candidates are encouraged to seek financial support from the Erasmus+ programme. Please follow this link.

EIIL interns would additionally receive personal and professional skill development through routine and ad hoc team meetings and individual coaching and would benefit from access to EIIL workshops and a range of personal one-to-one ‘lecturettes’ as needs or interests arise. The EIIL is a learning organisation and ensures that every intern has learning aims and a personal development plan.

The position offers experience of working in a non-profit association whose members are global industrial multi-national companies and with whom the EIIL has contacts at the highest levels. Opportunities have been arranged for previous interns to meet with seniors in these companies and visit appropriate departments to experience where their areas of expertise and interest are applied.

Starting date & Application

Due to exceptional circumstances, a vacancy exists for an immediate start. Applications for this position’s immediate start position will be considered until the 30th of April. Applications received after this date will be considered for a start date in September / October.
