Ten graduates to be appointed for Internship Scheme in European Union Institutions
The Internship Scheme in European Union Institutions will go ahead again this year it has been announced by the Minister of State for the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, Senator Seán Kyne. The scheme commenced in 2018 agus more than 14 graduates have already taken part. The scheme is focused on the provision of opportunities for graduates to acquire work placements in the special subject field of translation and proofreading.
This year it is hoped that ten graduates will be appointed and undertake work experience in the autumn. Eight of the graduates will assist in the translation of European Union legislation and laws – primarily the acquis communautaire – during the work placement. Two of the graduates will undertake work in the proofreading of Irish language documents under the supervision of the Publications Office or the European Parliament. An allowance of €2,000 per month will be made available for the internships for a period of ten months.
Minister of State Kyne said:
“I am delighted to announce that the internships scheme will go ahead again this year. As an increase in funding was approved last year, the scheme has been extended and it has been very successful to date. It is important that people have the opportunity to acquire experience in the area of proof-reading, in which there will be further employment opportunities in the future.”
