Your first EURES job is an EU job mobility scheme to help young Europeans find a job in another Member State. It targets both jobseekers and employers and provides a comprehensive mobility package which includes financial support.
The goal of the project
YfEj is a targeted mobility scheme to help young nationals in the 18–35 age bracket of any of the 28 EU countries and the European Free Trade Association/European Economic Area (EFTA/EEA) countries (Norway and Iceland) to find a work placement in another EU EFTA/EEA country than their country of residence.
It also helps employers, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to find the workforce they need for their hard-to-fill vacancies.
The project supports European mobility and sustainable recruitments with fair working conditions. Under the present call, the sheme is expected to ensure around 1,500 work placements.
In order to apply for a job and for financial support, young candidates must fulfil the conditions. They can qualify for interview trip, relocation allowance, language course, recognition of qualifications and supplementary relocation allowance.
In order to apply for financial support, employers must fulfil the conditions as well. The financial support to employers is given for language training, job introduction or in-house training. The programme level can vary from basic (with just one learning component) to comprehensive (combining a training module with administrative support and resettlement assistance).
