I mountain bike regularly and would love to get into trail building as a future career. I live in Europe and is there anything around Europe where I could learn and get into trail building. Is there any qualifications I need as well?

Europe is a big place.
You will have to ask your local trail association. But they probably dont have paid jobs. Ask the nearest bike park what they look for when they hire people.
The best qualification is a bit of experience so find a place to build your own, or volunteer at the trail association.
Imba has their own opinion on how to build trails and they have ressources to show you best practices for "sustainable" building in terms of erosion.
Their are more univerity level courses on building roadways and sutch vs mtb trails, but i know capilano university in b.c. canada offers a course on mtb trail building, so their might be somthing around you.
