The IAESTE Ireland programme has now closed. Please see the announcement in our news section.


Ireland has over 50 years’ experience of placing international trainees with Irish employers in companies, research institutes and universities. IAESTE trainees come from over 88 countries around the world, studying Bachelors or Masters programmes in science, engineering, architecture and IT. IAESTE trainees are motivated and highly skilled, hand-picked to meet the employer’s requirements. All IAESTE traineeships are conducted in English and can last from six weeks to 12 months. Employers specify the exact professional and personal skills they require in a trainee and IAESTE Ireland will match them with the best candidate. Employers receive the candidate’s CV, cover letter and academic transcript and can arrange a phone interview if required. Once the employer accepts the candidate for a traineeship, IAESTE Ireland will help with accommodation for the trainee, visas and work permits and meet them on arrival. Members of the IAESTE Ireland Local Committee (Irish students who have been on past IAESTE traineeships abroad) arrange a social programme for trainees, so they have a peer support system and get to see some of the country!

Recruiting an IAESTE trainee will help you

  • Fill skills gaps within projects, teams and areas of expertise.
  • Find the best trainee for your requirements. IAESTE is a competitive process and trainees are screened by the sending and receiving country. The employer always has the final decision on accepting the trainee.
  • Improve diversity and intercultural skills within your teams.
  • Access a pool of linguistically skilled students from 88 countries and over 1000 academic institutions around the world.
  • Recruit future employees – many IAESTE trainees go on to join their employers after completing their studies.
  • Adapt to recruitment needs through the year – IAESTE traineeships can be short or long term, from six weeks to 12 months.
  • Raise your organisation’s profile abroad.
  • Contribute to Ireland’s student skillset, as for every trainee placed in Ireland an Irish student gets to go on a traineeship abroad.
  • Minimise administration, as IAESTE takes care of trainee arrival, assistance with accommodation, and all administration including work permits through our special arrangement with the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation

And remember, all IAESTE services for employers are completely free of charge!

What do you have to do?

IAESTE finds the best trainee to meet your requirements and sends you their Cover Letter, CV, Transcripts and Recommendation Letters. You have the final decision in accepting the trainee.

To offer a traineeship, register as an employer on our platform at www.iaeste.net. Then fill out a simple form detailing your requirements, including desired study field, dates and duration of the traineeship, and work description.

As an employer, you will have to identify a project and a supervisor for the trainee, and pay the trainee a stipend to cover the cost of lodging and living expenses in Ireland.

What if I have a trainee in mind already?

If your organisation already has a trainee in mind for a traineeship, IAESTE Ireland can help you facilitate the process of a ‘Reserved Offer’. Get in touch with us at iaeste@leargas.ie to find out more.
