Facility for Euro-Mediterranean Investment Partnership (FEMIP) Traineeship Programme
Our FEMIP traineeship Programme aims to build human capacity in the Mediterranean Partner Countries by offering opportunities to young talented candidates, who wish to contribute towards improving people’s lives by promoting economic and social progress in the Mediterranean Partner Countries.
We launch the programme each year in autumn for Partner Countries that have entered into a Framework Agreement with the EIB (Algeria, Egypt, Palestine*, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia).
The goal of our FEMIP Traineeship Programme is to offer successful candidates an opportunity to improve their skills as well as an experience of working in an international multicultural environment.
This programme, funded by the FEMIP Trust Fund, looks for candidates specialising in a field relevant to international investment and development banking, such as:
finance (in particular project finance, SME financing, credit and risk analysis)
environment, engineering (ports, roads, energy, etc.) or urban planning
Eligibility to apply
The FEMIP Traineeship Programme is open only to students or recent graduates, with less than two years of relevant experience, who are nationals of the Mediterranean Partner Countries (Algeria, Egypt, Palestine*, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia).
You must have a degree 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 pursuing a master’s degree and already have some work experience.
In addition, you must meet the following criteria:
demonstrated ability to conduct analytical work, exercise good judgment and work as part of a team
proficiency in English and/or French; knowledge of FEMIP languages would be an advantage
some work experience would be an advantage (usually no more than two years)
What we offer
We pay a flat-rate monthly allowance to assist with living costs and provide reimbursement of travel expenses (one round trip from/to the point of origin/residence for up to six months traineeship or two in the case of 10 to 12 month assignments). Trainees will be responsible for their own accommodation costs.
Each successful candidate will commit to a minimum of three months and a maximum of 12 months in the programme, to be spent at our headquarters in Luxembourg. For trainees committing to a stay for 10-12 months, there is a possibility of undertaking two assignments in two different Directorates of the Bank.
