EURES Reform

417 views

On 26 November 2012, a decision to modernise and improve EURES, the pan-EU job search network, was adopted by the European Commission. The Decision will help to increase mobility of workers across Member States and pave the way for a true European labour market. The EURES reform aims to make it easier for jobseekers to contact employers looking for particular skills, to focus on sectors and occupations with skills shortages and to support targeted mobility schemes for young people. Despite high levels of unemployment (over 25 million people in the EU) there are still labour shortages and vacancy bottlenecks. Indeed, the number of unfilled vacancies has been on the rise since mid-2009, particularly in high growth areas such as information and communication technologies and the green economy. EURES is an existing job search network of 31 European employment services in the EU Member States, EEA countries (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and Switzerland. The new Commission Decision will help EURES to respond directly to specific economic needs. As a result, EURES will proactively match jobseekers and job-changers to current job vacancies. It will also give employers better access to a pool of candidates where they can find the skills they need to develop and grow their businesses. In this regard the Audiovisual Service of the European Commission has produced a video stockshot on the European labour market.
