About EURES Job-search Get help for this section

The jobs advertised on the EURES Portal come from EURES members and partners, in particular the European Public Employment Services. They use EURES to advertise jobs for which employers are particularly interested in recruiting workers from other European countries. These "EURES jobs" have a blue flag, which indicates that an employer is particularly interested in recruiting workers from other European countries.

In order to increase the transparency of the labour market in Europe, all jobs that are advertised by European Public Employment Services are, with a few exceptions, made visible on our site. These jobs do not have a blue flag and are not "EURES jobs".

The vacancies cover a wide range of occupations and include permanent and seasonal job opportunities. Each vacancy has information on how to apply and whom to contact. The contact may be either a EURES adviser, who will process the application or, in other cases, contact can be made directly with the employer.

The EURES job-search database is updated daily by the European employment services, and vacancy notices only stay on the system as long as they are current.

Points to bear in mind when using EURES job-search:

While most details about jobs, such as type of contract, required experience and level of education etc. are translated into all EU languages, this is not the case for the title and the text of the job notice. A keyword search using keywords in one language will therefore not necessarily call up all vacancies available in the database. If , for example, you search using the English word "waiter" as a keyword, you will probably not find the same notices that you would find searching with the French keyword "serveur". The predefined categories under "profession", "experience required", "location" etc. do, however, cover all available language versions.
