Jobseekers

In order to apply for a job and for financial support, you must fulfil the conditions.

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.

All applications to take part in Reactivate must be managed and sent in by EURES staff or the Public Employment Services. Please contact the project partners for more information regarding project, application forms etc.

Eures

Registered unemployed 35+ can qualify for:

You cannot receive the same kind of support from both your employer and from the project. But it is possible for you to choose not to accept support from your employer and then apply for support from the project instead.


Important:

Please note that the project can not 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.
