Interns and Volunteers

We are always looking for interns and volunteers to join our dynamic team. We prefer to host long-term internships (ideally over 3 months; 6 months is even better).

Your background and studies could be law, human rights, international relations, European studies, politics, economics, development, or communication. It’s important that you explain in your cover letter exactly why you want to come to Access Info and which aspects of our work interest you most.

Interns should have a fluent or native level of English, with very strong Spanish language skills (B2 or above). Other European languages are also welcome.

Internships are not remunerated but we do offer substantive work and a good learning experience. We can provide testimonies from previous interns. The internship often involves attending meetings (in Spain, in Brussels, or elsewhere) so there may be some travel involved.

If you are coming from abroad, you are expected to organise your accommodation in Madrid, although we can give you some tips.

When sending your application please attach a copy of your CV and a letter of motivation explaining why you want to work at Access Info Europe, what part of our work interests you, and any previous experience.

Please send your applications at info [@]
