Your first EURES job - Targeted Mobility Scheme - employer

Your first EURES job

If you have a cooperation with EURES regarding recruitment you can apply for financial support for offering an Integration programme, when you employ a young person aged 18-35 from another EU country, Norway or Iceland.

Please contact the EURES network/EURES Adviser to get help with your recruitment. You can also search for eligible candidates through the EURES portal. The financial support can be given for language training, job introduction or in-house training and administrative help as part of an Integration programme. The amount of the support is depending on in which country you offer employment.

It is obligatory to contact a EURES Adviser to get help with your recruitment and/or to publish vacancies on the EURES portal.

The project supports European mobility and sustainable recruitments with fair working conditions. The project cannot support employment within businesses with high turnover or with one or more days of unpaid trial work/training before employment or which offers only commission with no fixed wages.

Please note that the project can no longer approve support to jobseekers for interviews or jobs regarding sales and telemarketing within the Business support/callcenter sector. This also applies when employers operating within this sector seek support through the project. Experience shows that support for jobs within this sector is not compatible with the project's basic purpose, which is to promote sustainable employment and mobility in Europe through recruitments of good quality.

The processing time is around 3-6 weeks.
