EURES - European Employment Services

Safe point in finding a job or working abroad and in recruitment of workers in EU

 

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.

MAIN TASKS:

• 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.


HUMAN NETWORK AND ONLINE SERVICES:

  • 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.
