- aged 18-35?
- a national and legal resident of an EU Member State, Norway or Iceland?
- unable to find a job or training opportunity in your country?
- willing to relocate to another EU Member State, Norway or Iceland for a job, traineeship or apprenticeship?
If so, then Your first EURES job (YFEJ) could be the solution for you.
What's in it for me?
Your first EURES job is a European Union job mobility scheme to help young EU citizens to find a job, traineeship or apprenticeship opportunity in another EU country, Norway or Iceland and to help employers find qualified workforce. It aims to match young jobseekers with remunerated employment offers across Europe. Placements must have a duration of at least 6 months (for jobs and apprenticeships) or 3 months (for traineeships).
Through Your first EURES job you can receive information, job search, matching and recruitment assistance. You may also be eligible for financial support to attend an interview abroad, as well as to cover costs such as language training, recognition of qualifications or relocation to the destination country.
What qualifications do I need?
Your first EURES job is open to candidates with different levels of education and/or work experience.
