Easing transition from university to employment

06/02/2015

The Slovenian government has announced a new part ESF-funded project to help young graduates in Slovenia make the transition from university to employment.

The project will provide co-financing to the tune of EUR 6000 to private-sector employers hiring young graduates full-time for 12 months. They must be younger than 29 years and unemployed, looking for their first job.

The aim is to give 820 young people the work experience they need to break into the employment market, where they belong to one of the most vulnerable groups precisely due to lack of experience. At the same time, the project is intended to help meet employers’ needs for skilled labour.

The total budget amounts to EUR 5 million with an EU contribution of EUR 4.25 million.
