European Commission CFPs: Reactivate – Intra-EU Job Mobility Scheme for Unemployed over 35s

Deadline: 5 September 2018

European Commission is seeking proposals for its ‘Reactivate – Intra-EU job mobility scheme for unemployed over 35s’ with an aim to test an intra-EU labour market activation measure to support the inclusion of EU unemployed citizens aged 35+ in the labour market.

The objective of the action is to test the feasibility of an intra-EU job mobility scheme for the age group above 35 years, with a particular focus on unemployed citizens, including long-term unemployed. Similar to the targeted mobility scheme “Your first EURES job”(YFEJ) helping young jobseekers under 35s, “Reactivate” intends to help adults to find employment or traineeship opportunities in other EU countries and foster their full integration into the labour market.

Being strongly result-oriented, the action aims to improve the conditions for jobseekers and workers to exercise their right of freedom of movement across the EU and to address labour markets’ imbalances and skills shortages. Building on the YFEJ features and objectives (help young jobseekers under 35), “Reactivate” also aims to be an innovative extension of that scheme.
