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 cover letter 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[@]

Pro Bono Lawyers

Are you a lawyer who is willing to help us defend the right to information? If so, join our Pro Bono Network.

To fully defend the right to information, we sometimes need specific pro bono legal assistance. To meet this need, Access Info has created a pro bono legal network made up of lawyers from across Europe with varying legal backgrounds.

To join this network, it isn’t necessary to be an expert in the right to information, as Access Info will hold training sessions on this right, how it functions in practice and the practical problems we face in accessing that right.


  • Are you a qualified lawyer or do you have a strong legal background?
  • Are you willing to learn about the right to information?
  • Are you willing to offer pro bono assistance?

If you would like to join our network, get in contact: rachel[at]
