EURES (European Employment Services) is an information and advisory network made up of employment services in the EU Member States and in Switzerland and the EEA countries, aimed at facilitating the flow of labor between countries.
• Providing information and advice to workers who wish to find a job and settle in the Union• Assisting employers in recruiting in and from the European Union
Free movement and employment within the EU is a fundamental right of the EU. However, European workers face day-to-day job, administrative, legal and tax obstacles that are less known to them. The trained staff of the EURES network provide them with guidance and assistance on available, real, announced and controlled posts, their employees' rights and obligations, and guidance on taxation, social security or housing. Employers are helping to advertise their vacancies at European level, to reach job-seekers and to explore their recruitment opportunities across borders.
EURES staff are in contact with jobseekers, workers, employers, recruiters, public and private employment services in EU / EEA countries, EU advisory networks and partner organizations, chambers and other labor market players.
The backbone of the network is easily accessible online services via the EURES portal (eures.europa.eu), as well as support services, guidance and assistance provided by consultants and tailored to customer needs.
The Hungarian EURES network since its accession to the EU in 2004, Hungary has been responsible for EURES tasks at national level and celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2019. In the Hungarian network, the official EURES member is the National Employment Service (NFSZ). The EURES advisory network with 32 people is made up of skilled and trained staff in EU labor mobility, working in county and metropolitan government offices, and is complemented by a EURES assistant network of 150 at national level in the employment departments of district offices.

In Hungary, 32 EURES advisers provide the most important information about safe working abroad, about job opportunities in the EU and the labor regulations required in the Member States. The trained professionals are available to the clients in person, by phone and by e-mail at the labor organization and at national and local job fairs and events.
