Your first EURES Job Targeted mobility scheme YfEj 4.0

What is Your first EURES job 4.0?

Your first EURES job is a European Union job mobility scheme to help young Europeans find a job or work-based training opportunity in other Member State, Norway or Ireland and to help employers find qualified young workers within a larger territory.

Your first EURES Job Targeted mobility scheme YfEj 4.0

Your first EURES job is testing a new way of providing customised job mobility services to young people and employers through an online innovative platform EUJOB4EU. 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. 

The initiative, co-funded by the European Union, sees the collaboration of 9 EU Ministries of Labour (Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain) together with the Città Metropolitana di Roma Capitale and a large network of associated partners.

Who qualifies for support?

EU, Norway and Iceland nationals aged between 18 and 35 and living in any EU country, Norway or Iceland. 
All employers legally established in EU countries, Norway or Iceland offering contracts of at least 6 months’ duration, provided that pay and conditions comply with national labour law.

What support is available?

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 (apprenticeship or traineeship), enabling them to attend job interviews and settle in other EU countries to take up employment.
The mobility package includes other support measures for young people, described in the Your first EURES job Guide.
For employers: 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.
