  • “Your first EURES job”(YFEJ), helping young jobseekers under 35 to find a job, traineeship or apprenticeship in another Member State and
  • “Reactivate”, a similar scheme dedicated to the age group above 35 years.

Both YFEJ and Reactivate were created as inclusive schemes, playing the role of active labour measures aiming at improving access to intra-EU labour markets. The workers and employers have an opportunity to benefit from tailor-made employment support, acquire diversified knowledge and skills, learn new languages and strengthen their EU citizenship values.

The call is financed under the European Programme for Employment and Social Innovation “EaSI” 2014- 2020 is a European-level financing instrument managed directly by the European Commission to contribute to the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy.

  • Targeted Mobility Scheme (TMS), building on the YFEJ and the preparatory action’s Reactivate features and objectives, constitutes a European labour market activation measure, combining tailor-made recruitment, matching, training and placement services with financial incentives.

  • Testing of cooperation arrangements in the partnership between EURES member organisations and other labour market organisations, in particular private employment services, as regards for instance the exchange of labour market information support services to workers or employers, to promote and raise awareness about the opportunities to gradually broaden the network in accordance with Article 11 of the EURES Regulation.
  • Provision of services comprising at least labour market information and assistance with offers and vacancies, matching these with candidates and the preparation of the placement /recruitment in the Member States covered by the action.
  • In the context of the services indicated under 3) above, provision of support measures and direct financial support to both job seekers and employers.
  • Development of post-placement support measures (welcome and integration services) and other tailor-made support like coaching packs.
