The European Investment Fund’s Graduate Recruitment and Development (GRAD) programme is aiming at recent graduates looking to gain early professional "hands-on" experience.

The openings will be for junior roles allowing GRADs to either gain first-hand experience in a dynamic multicultural environment or to further their existing experience by working alongside expert professionals. The appointments will be mainly at the EIF headquarters in Luxembourg but may also involve assignments in its external offices according to the EIF's needs. The candidates selected for this programme will be offered an initial contract of two years.

The selection is made on the basis of the candidates' qualifications, interviews, and professional and psychometric assessments. Candidates need to apply for specific positions published on the EIB Group recruitment portal under “Current Vacancies”. If there are no openings suiting your profile, we invite you to visit our website from time to time as new vacancies are posted regularly.

If you wish to have an opportunity to gain valuable work experience in excellent working conditions, please apply on-line to the job openings of your interest. Before starting your application, please take some time to prepare your motivation letter in English as well as your cv. You will need this text to complete your application.

Depending on your area of work, you may be asked to participate in business travel (inside or outside of the EU).

Only online applications can be considered.
