Your company will remunerate the Vulcanus trainee DIRECTLY,  in accordance with the labor laws of your country.

Normally, in the majority of the countries, the amount of the remuneration complies with the minimum wage (salary),

If the applicable remuneration is lower than the minimal remuneration permitted by Vulcanus, then the latter (*) prevails.

(*) 1000€/month of traineeship - (exception for Italy, detailed below)

 

Other costs for the company:

The Company will also cover the following costs:

  • Taxes & costs linked with salaries, visas, work permits, if any.
  • Further costs arising from the applicable law in your Member State, if any. (Attention: in Italy: companies are usually requested to also provide accommodation and meals)

{Only for reference}:

Please find some information regarding payment in some EU countries, as of May 2024. Please note that the applicable law in these EU countries may change by the time of the next Vulcanus placement.
