Internships


Our Internship Programme offers you the chance to gain valuable work experience from a NATO Agency. You will get a first-hand look at the inner workings of an international tech organization, while adding valuable skills and experience to your CV.

If you live outside the Agency's main locations, you should still consider applying. Working outside of your own country will set you apart from your peers. Most positions are offered in The Hague, Mons or Brussels. Other NCI Agency locations may be included, so be sure to check the location on the listing.

In principle, internships last between three to 10 months, and may commence at any point during the calendar year. You will have to obtain a security clearance before taking up your post with us, so we are flexible on your start date. We will assist you with the process if you are selected. Because this process can take some time depending on where you are from, we recommend applying for an internship as soon as possible.

Eligibility Criteria:

You need to be national of a NATO member country, be currently studying towards a university-level degree or have recently graduated, in the past 12 months, and have strong communication skills in English, both written and oral.

Compensation:

You will be compensated at a fixed taxable rate:

  • In Belgium – 1,088 EUR per month, based on 38 hours of work per week.
  • In the Netherlands – 1,192 EUR per month, based on 38 hours of work per week.
  • In Portugal – 944 EUR per month, based on 38 hours of work per week.
  • For travel expenses – Up to 1,000 EUR in total, based on what you spent when taking up the internship, and when returning to your home country upon completion of the internship.
