What is EURES?
EURES was set up in 1993.
It is a co-operation network between the European Commission and the Public Employment Services of the European Economic Area ( EEA), Member States (Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein also take part) and other partner organisations.
EURES network offers high quality services for both workers and employers.
The European Job Mobility Portal aims…
to provide information about job vacancies in 31 European countries, in the European Economic Area ( EEA);
to inform, guide and advise potentially mobile workers on job opportunities as well as living and working conditions abroad;
- to assist employers wishing to recruit workers from other countries;
- to provide advice and guidance to workers and employers in cross-border regions.
EURES in cross-border partnerships
These partnerships bring together public employment and vocational training services, employers and trades union organisations, local authorities and other institutions dealing with employment and vocational training.
More than 600 000 people who live in one EU country and work in another have to cope with different national practices and legal systems.
They may come across administrative, legal or fiscal obstacles to mobility on a daily basis.
EURES advisers provide specific advice and guidance on the rights and obligations of workers living in one country and working in another.
