The call for expression of interest for the Junior Professionals in Delegation (JPD) Programme will be published in January 2019
The European External Action Service (EEAS) and the European Commission (EC) have established a high-level traineeship programme which gives an opportunity to highly qualified junior professionals from the EU Member States to work in the EU Delegations worldwide. The aim of the programme is to enable young people to gain a first-hand experience in the work of Delegations and an in-depth understanding of their role in the implementation of EU external policies.
Every 24 months, the EEAS and EC open a call for expression of interest. For the current round 2017-2019, there are 78 junior professionals posted in different Delegations. Next call, for the round 2019-2021, will be published in January 2019.
The JPD programme is based on the:
Joint Decision of 12.06.2012 establishing a High Level Traineeship Programme in the Delegations and Rules Governing this Programme in Partnership with the Member States of the European Union
