Traineeships at EU, UN & OSCE in Vienna

The European External Service has a long tradition of offering traineeship opportunities to University students with EU Delegations around the world. Trainees will be guided by their Traineeship Supervisor in one of the following sections:

UN Section Trainees will mainly follow the activities of different UN-related bodies in Vienna such as the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the UN Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) or the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO).

OSCE Section: The traineeship provides an insight into a broad range of thematic and geographical topics on the OSCE agenda as well as the day-to-day working mechanisms of the OSCE. In addition, it gives an insight into internal EU co-ordination mechanisms at a multilateral organisation as well as the role and working methods of the different EU institutions. Trainees will assist in a variety of different meetings and consultations, including OSCE formal and informal meetings and consultations, EU coordination and EU Troika meetings.
