FEMIP Internships Programme: Facility for Euro-Mediterranean Investment Partnership

The European Investment Bank seeks talented young individuals who can help to contribute towards improving people’s lives by promoting economic and social progress in the Mediterranean partner countries.

The European Investment Bank is launching its FEMIP Trust Fund Internship Programme for talented young individuals from Mediterranean Partner Countries that have entered into a Framework Agreement with the EIB (Algeria, Egypt, Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia) and have limited professional experience, no more than two years.

Interested candidates should submit their applications online. 

Details about 2018 intake will be published in due course.

Full details of the roles, and how to apply, can be found at:

Objectives of the Programme

The goal of the FEMIP Internship Programme is to offer successful candidates an opportunity to improve their skills as well as the experience of working in an international multicultural environment.

This Programme, funded by the FEMIP Trust Fund, will look for candidates specialising in a field relevant to international development banking, such as economics, finance, the environment, engineering (ports, roads, energy, etc.) or urban planning.

Eligibility to Apply

The Internship Programme is open only to students who are nationals of the Mediterranean partner countries (Algeria, Egypt, Palestine*, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia).[1]

Candidates must have a degree from or be in the final year of a course at an institute of higher education. Generally, successful candidates will have enrolled on a graduate study programme (be pursuing a master’s degree) and already have some work experience.

In addition, candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • be proficient in English and/or French;
  • hold a degree from or be in the last year of a university programme in a Mediterranean partner country;
  • have demonstrated an ability to conduct analytical work, exercise good judgment and work as part of a team;
  • some work experience would be an advantage (usually no more than two years).

What are we offering?

We offer an opportunity for professional development and global experience in an international environment. The EIB will pay a flat rate monthly allowance to assist in their living expenses and will provide reimbursement of travel expenses (one round trip from/to the point of origin/residence for up to 6 months internship or two in the case of 10 to 12 month assignments). Interns will be responsible for their own accommodation costs.

Each successful candidate [2] will commit themselves to a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 12 months in the Programme, to be spent at the EIB Headquarters in Luxembourg. For those interns committing themselves to a stay of 10-12 months there is a possibility of undertaking two assignments in two different units at the Bank. As a rule candidates can only apply for a position in a country of which they are not a resident/national.

If you wish to apply for a FEMIP Internship in the EIB, please view Current Vacancies and respond to one of the FEMIP internship opportunities by submitting your application on-line.

Only those identified as suitable for an assignment will be contacted to discuss their application and availability.

The final selection of candidates is made by a panel, and competition is very high.

[1] The EIB will seek to achieve reasonable balance of Mediterranean partner country nationalities amongst selected candidates

[2] Interns selected for the Internship Programme can not apply to any other EIB-FEMIP recruitment Programme
