Legal/European Affairs Internship

EMMA - European Magazine Media Association

Brussels, Belgium

EMMA and ENPA are offering an unpaid, full-time internship at the Secretariat’s offices in Brussels for a period of 3-6 months (a small allowance for transport and food will be paid). This internship will be of benefit particularly for anyone who seeks professional experience related to lobbying in a European, membership-based organisation.


The internship offers the possibility to learn about the work of EMMA and ENPA, especially its advocacy and communication actions in Brussels, and the priorities of magazine publishers today. It consists of support and assistance in the following areas:

  • Monitor legislative and non-legislative activity, detect key issues and analyse their impact on the European magazine publishing industry;
  • Support EMMA and ENPA’s public affairs work, including the preparation of briefings, contact plans, newsletter articles and monitoring of parliamentary discussions;
  • Research and background work to support the overall activities of EMMA and ENPA;
  • Support EMMA and ENPA’s administration and organisational work, such as preparing meetings with members and organizing meetings with the EU institutions.


  • Knowledge of the EU Institutions, including decision-making procedures, as well as EU law;
  • An excellent team-player, with a demonstrated interest in media policy in the EU context;
  • Excellent English language skills and very good written and verbal communication skills: phone calls to arrange meetings and drafting of articles for members is part of the weekly job;
  • Strong IT skills (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, database);
  • Self-motivated, well organized and able to work efficiently;
  • Ideally working towards a degree in political sciences or law. Previous experience in an EU institution or an EU association is an asset.
