Traineeship Satellietcentrum van de Europese Unie

How about:

  • Joining a multi-national team of first-class civil, military and intelligence staff
  • To get practical, first-hand training and work experience
  • In a European security and defence Agency
  • Which offers an intellectually stimulating environment, and
  • An attractive financial benefits package?

And all of that, in a fascinating location (military base) just 20 minutes outside one of the coolest cities in Europe: Madrid!

This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!


Then look at our traineeship and internship programmes below.

What do we offer?

Traineeship opportunities are published on our vacancies page in so-called Vacancy Notices.

Length: Traineeships are offered for an initial period of 6 months, with the possibility of extension for another 6 months (max. 12 months).

Key dates: As a general rule, traineeships are organised via 2 yearly intakes:

- In spring: from 1 April until 30 September. (approx. publication period: October to November)

- In autumn: from 1 October until 31 March. (approx. publication period: April to May)

In addition, for trainees joining SatCen from more than 100 km distance, a contribution to travel expenses upon joining and leaving the SatCen may be offered. Disabled trainees may receive a supplement to their monthly allowance equal to a maximum of 50% of the amount of the allowance, to help cover extra expenses (e.g. transport, cost of special accommodation) related to their disability.

Mentorship: Trainees are assigned a mentor who is responsible for establishing their individual learning goals, supervising their work and monitoring their progress on a regular basis, as well as providing them guidance on career and development. Trainees have the opportunities to learn about SatCen’s mission and activities, attend workshops, participate in meetings and have access to other competency development opportunities.

What do we expect from trainees?

  • An open mind to working in a multicultural environment
  • An interest in learning about SatCen’s working methods
  • Eagerness to contribute to SatCen’s daily work with a fresh perspective
  • A proactive attitude

Who can apply?

Candidates must:

  • Be nationals of the Member States of the European Union.
  • Have completed at least the first (minimum three-year) cycle of a higher education course (university education) and obtained a full degree or its equivalent by the starting date of the traineeship.
  • Have a very good knowledge of at least two EU languages, of which one should be English (minimum level of B2 (1)), the working language of the SatCen.
