Internship opportunities


ALDA has several agreements with Universities and institutions to host trainees in all its offices. Our idea of traineeship is offering young people the opportunity to grow professionally in the field they would like to build a career in.

We all remember how tough it was to access the working environment, and we have a vivid memory of our first experiences and mentors. That's why we offer traineeships within our organisation, and make sure they represent a cornerstone in trainees' development. We are not looking for people to make coffee – we do manage this crucial task pretty well. We need people with fresh ideas and creativity, enthusiasm, and willingness to be part of the team of ALDA.

Tutors and staff make sure that the traineeship develops personal and professional skills of the youngsters, and a variety of support initiatives are in place to support our former interns: tools to get in touch with potential employers, incubator opportunities, ALDA's ambassadors and antennas for democracy initiatives.
ALDA can host in its offices only interns holding a scholarship (e.g. funded from the EU, universities, regions, foundations, etc.); please note that according to the availability for each position, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. The pre-selected candidates will be contacted for an interview in the following weeks.

HOW TO APPLY:

Former interns & volunteers say about ALDA:


I really appreciate that I had the opportunity to do the internship with ALDA because it brings you a lot of new experiences, allows you to improve and deepen your skills, offers you a space for your creativity and ideas while working in a friendly environment where you are not just an intern, you are actually part of the team. Six-months internship is the best period to find out how the organization works, to be able to work independently and to actually benefit from the experience”.

Zuzana Oravcová
Communications support - Vicenza office


“I like it. I learnt a lot and think that I even did some nice work in this field here.
I appreciate very much cooperation, consultations, guidance, but also space left for my ideas, creative process and independent work”

Kateřina Procházková
Project development assistant - Vicenza office


My traineeship experience in ALDA was very positive, both expanding and benefiting my educational background.  The traineeship combined practical and educational skills. It helped me in understanding how an NGO works, how important local authorities are and the complex Mediterranean neighbourhood that Europe has in North Africa. The traineeship also gave me the opportunity to meet an awesome multicultural staff, always professional and devoted to its work.  I would definitely recommend ALDA to other students”.

Teresa Armengol De La Hoz
Project manager assistant - Strasbourg office


“I got the opportunity to have an internship at ALDA just after my graduation. Working in an organization like ALDA, I gained new experiences and connections, which represent a big step for my future career. It is a pleasure that ALDA allowed me to be part of the team and work on big projects. Here I also met the young team of ALDA employees, who taught me worthy professional experience. I will always feel as part of ALDA, so for sure I recommend this organization to all young people out there”.

Aleksandar Talić
Assistant to the Secretary General's office - Brussels office


''The international environment of the work, the implementation of an interesting and promising project and the acquisition of different kind of experience and professional qualifications, made my first working experience in ALDA valuable''.

Artemis Bakagianni
Project manager assistant - Brussels office


"ALDA taught me how to manage diverse international projects funded by the EU so that I may improve my own work in development cooperation projects now".

Zuzana Břehová

Project manager assistant - Brussels office


"The time I spent volunteering for ALDA this summer in Vicenza was a valuable experience for my personal and professional development, despite its short time frame of only six weeks. The team welcomed me with open arms and with their support I managed to gain interesting insights in all aspects of the work of the organization. I felt like I was a real part of the team, and the inputs and tasks I was given were always valid and purposeful.".
