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 or 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 jobs within the sector Business support/call center. 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.
