A job mobility scheme to help young Europeans find a job, traineeship or apprenticeship in other EU countries.
The scheme is part of the Youth on the Move package and the Youth Opportunities Initiative. It could be incorporated into national Youth Guarantee schemes that include cooperation with other EU countries.
The 2015 target for Your first EURES job is to help some 5 000 people find jobs in EU countries other than their own. The initiative involves only a limited number of employment services.
Your first EURES job is testing a new way of providing customised job mobility services to young people and employers. Under this scheme, national employment services provide support – information, recruitment, matching, placement and funding – for both young jobseekers and businesses interested in recruiting from outside their home country. Funding is subject to these services' conditions and procedures.
The Your first EURES job evaluation report gives an overview of the results achieved over the first two implementation years and of the main challenges to be addressed in the future.
For young people
The scheme funds language courses or other forms of training. It also covers travel expenses for young people applying for jobs or work-based training, enabling them to attend job interviews and settle in other EU countries to take up employment.
The mobility package includes new support measures for young people, described in the 2014-2015 Guide.
Companies with up to 250 employees can apply for financial support towards the cost of training newly-recruited workers, trainees or apprentices and helping them settle in.
The Your first EURES job guide lists the conditions and rules governing participation. There are currently 2 versions available:
