Virtual Internships is an initiative from YesEuropa aiming to help companies fill vacancies with trainee candidates. We already sent over 500 trainees with Erasmus+. However, lockdown restrictions are not stopping us!

Due to COVID19 crisis, we want to continue to help Erasmus Trainees to enjoy their traineeship. Companies will «host» virtual trainees to get an additional help in growing their business.

We have a wide range of trainees from Spain willing to help you in your business.

Traineeships in the following fields:

  • Admin work
  • Translation
  • Education
  • development of apps, software, scripts, websites,
  • installation, maintenance and management of IT systems and networks,
  • data analytics,
  • cybersecurity,
  • cloud,
  • quantum/artificial intelligence,
  • encryption,
  • block chain,
  • data mining, privacy and visualisation,
  • programming language,
  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO),
  • digital marketing,
  • specific software apps for work,
  • Customer Care Management.

Many companies are struggling to find candidates, specially now with COVID19 lockdown measures.  This means that hundreds of thousands of vacancies remain unfilled, despite the fact that there are hundreds of Erasmus+ interns that gained already the grant. We also suffer in Europe high unemployment in some parts of Europe. Furthermore, many companies – from SMEs to large corporations – simply do not have the capacity to train students on the job, or have the resources or time to organise internships programmes on their own. This initiative is designed to address these concerns. Businesses already hosting trainees within Erasmus+ will find that the initiative does not imply any additional costs. Traineeships are considered one of the more effective ways of bringing on board skilled employers.

Companies can register in our form and publish their offers on YesEuropa.org or advertise them through our direct contacts with universities careers offices. We also address to public and/or regional education centres and research centres. They are also eligible for such traineeships. Companies that publish their offers on YesEuropa can publish their offers on the platform, but companies need to register as recruiters on the website. Companies do  need to sign an agreement with universities and with the trainee. We will assist you on this.

We inform you that due to GDPR we don’t have this section available in our site anymore. We will send you the profile of trainees and you will interview them. Then, you will confirm us if he/she is selected and we will inform you about next steps.

This may take some more time as we have to manually validate the information. You can still fill the internships form without any problem in the meantime

Sometimes we do not need to publish your offer in our website, it is offered directly to interested candidates and, if they confirm their availability, we will send you their contacts and CVs.

In most cases, the intern will need to sign a Learning Agreement. You must also sign any legal document you may need according to your country’s work regulations, but we will assist you in paperwork if you have doubts about that.

Most cases you do not need to pay anything to the trainee. We also include an accident&civil responsability insurance. You may need according to your country’s work regulations, you can contact the National Agency of your country if you have doubts about that.

Enterprises (any size) or any other relevant workplace can host trainees. Public institutions, Chambers of commerce and business associations can offer traineeships and also match supply and demand and therefore become partners to universities.

Payment of trainee insurance will be done by YesEuropa and clearly stated in the Learning Agreement signed before the traineeship starts. Students do not normally pay the insurance from the Erasmus+ grant because it is paid by their education centre or by us.

Students will provide you a copy of this accident&civil responsability insurance.

There is no obligation for your company to hire a trainee after the traineeship, nor to keep him/her longer than agreed. As per Erasmus+ rules, traineeships normally last 3 months but they can also last 2 to 12 months – the actual duration depends on the company. The duration is agreed before signing the Learning Agreement.

Erasmus+ is based on the Learning Agreement signed by the company and the trainee which covers intellectual property rights on material developed during the traineeship. On top of this agreement, companies can add others agreements, including confidentiality clauses.

Yes, this is a good practice ensuring both rights for trainees and companies.

The European Quality Charter of Internships and Apprenticeships is an initiative of the European Youth Forum that lays basic quality principles for virtual internships and apprenticeships to become a valuable and quality experience across Europe.

Our service is free of charge, you do not have to worry about any costs. Moreover, it is not compulsory to give a salary/compensation to trainees. However, we will give priority to those companies that give a little compensation to trainees.
