Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

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.
