Every year I recruit at least one trainee (stagiaire in European Parliament terms). One of the pleasures of my job has been seeing a succession of bright young people who have worked for me as trainees and subsequently achieved greater things.
Previous trainees have gone on to work for MPs and MEPs, become councillors, lobbyists, worked in organisations promoting equality, have worked at No. 10 Downing Street, for the Labour Party, government ministers and many other jobs. I would like to thank my most recent trainee Ruby Thompson for all her work and I am delighted she has joined my staff team as an assistant.
If you, or someone you know, would be interested in working at the European Parliament in Brussels, please write to me. Applications should be in writing to ruby at maryhoneyball dot net. Please send your CV and a covering letter explaining why you would like the post and what you would bring to it.
The position will pay £14,000/year and is based at the European Parliament in Brussels. The vacancy is to be filled as soon as possible and will conclude in late July 2011. There is a possibility this placement may be further extended. This post will particularly follow the work of the Legal Affairs Committee. A knowledge of this area will be an advantage but is not essential.
The closing date for the vacancy is Friday 1st April at 5pm.
Interviews will be on April 6th and 8th in Central London.
Duties will include:
