Naturalist?

Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

European Parliament Trainee

European Parliament Trainee

"I wanted to gain experience within an international organisation and experience within an EU institution is an ideal way to achieve this." Torlach Grant, European Parliament Trainee 

I studied for a BA in Contemporary Culture and Society at Dublin City University. Following this, I completed an MSc in International Politics at Trinity College Dublin, graduating in 2014.

While at university I developed a strong interest in international trade and development. I am particularly interested in how various citizens, organisations and interest groups interact within the European policy-making process.

After graduating, I joined European Movement Ireland as a Research Stagiaire and upon completion of my internship I was offered the role of Projects Executive Assistant. Reporting to the Head of Communications and Development, I worked on the organisation’s various advocacy projects and communications campaigns, as well as members’ and other events.

In October, I will begin a traineeship in the Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services at the European Parliament in Brussels. I will be working in the European Council Oversight Unit. I decided to apply for a traineeship at the Parliament because I wanted to gain experience within an international organisation and experience within an EU institution is an ideal way to achieve this.

I hope to make use of the traineeship to further develop my skills in policy research and analysis and to broaden my knowledge of how European policy processes work.
