What is the SHAPE Internship Programme?

The Internship Programme of Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) offers current and recent students the opportunity to gain work experience within SHAPE international community at Mons, Belgium.

The internship programme has four main objectives:

  1. To offer interns the opportunity to learn from the SHAPE community and gain a thorough understanding of the organisation and NATO in general.
  2. To contribute to creating a more diverse workforce through encouraging Divisions/Offices to take on interns of different nationalities, origins and backgrounds with a view, in the mid to long-term, to providing SHAPE with a younger and more diverse pool of potential future job applicants.

  3. To provide SHAPE with access to the latest theoretical and technical knowledge that the interns can apply through practical work assignments, as well as with additional staff resources.

  4. To expand understanding of NATO in Alliance countries by having interns return to their countries and/or universities after completing the internship and share their experience, as well as to help NATO branding by being an Ambassador of SHAPE.
