Employers spoilt for choice by range of EURES services
The EURES network is able to offer a wide range of services to employers looking to recruit across Europe.
Sometimes the prospect of recruiting across a number of European countries can seem daunting or overly complex to employers – this is where EURES can help. EURES Advisers work not only with jobseekers but also with employers who wish to take advantage of European mobility to satisfy their recruitment needs.
“EURES services for employers are very important. We’re the first point of call for questions on European mobility and we provide high quality advice, free of charge,” explains Agne Kunigonyte, EURES Manager in Lithuania.
The EURES network as a whole is able to assist employers in a number of ways and, according to Agne, the best approach is to get in touch with a local EURES Adviser to discuss which of the following services can be provided:
- Employers can post vacancies on the EURES portal;
- EURES Advisers can cooperate with employers to actively advertise and fill vacancies;
- EURES Advisers can arrange for employers to attend Job Days events or other EURES recruitment events;
- EURES can help employers with the selection of suitable candidates;
- The EURES network can use innovative tools such as Skype to facilitate and simplify the cross-border recruitment process;
- EURES Advisers can provide practical information on what is expected from an employer of a European worker;
- The wealth of information in the “Living and Working” section of the EURES portal can be used by an employer to help new European recruits to acclimatise to life abroad faster;
- The network can put employers in touch with EURES Advisers based all over the EU.
This wide range of services, combined with the specific know-how and personalised approach provided by every EURES Adviser, make a consultation indispensible when aiming to recruit. A network of more than 850 EURES Advisers across the EU and helpful publications such as “Recruiting in Europe: a guide for employers” and “When can you start? A practical guide to recruiting in Europe” enable employers to tap into truly pan-European opportunities.
“In Lithuania, for example, huge multinationals such as Barclays and Western Union cooperate with EURES precisely because of the unique nature and quality of our services,” concludes Agne.
