Blue Book traineeship programme.

This site is available in English, French and German – the three working languages of the European Commission.

The JPP is a Commission programme, including a selection based on an assessment on the job and pre-selection by Commission DGs.

These DGs later have an obligation to reintegrate Junior Professionals in the DG of origin in the second year of the programme.

For this reason, only Blue Book Trainees posted in a Commission DG are eligible to the JPP.

Staff and Blue Book trainees working in Executive agencies and other EU institutions or agencies are not eligible to the Commission Junior professionals programme. 

However, Blue Book trainees not eligible for the JPP programme can still find other career opportunities on EPSO website.
