Professional mobility in the EU/EFTA – EURES

EURES (EURopean Employment Services) is a cooperation network of public employment services in the European Union (EU) and the countries in the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). EURES aims to facilitate the mobility of workers within these countries.

    - EURES advisers report to the public labour market authorities. They are your first point of contact for all questions relating to the European labour market and professional mobility. In addition, every EURES adviser specialises in a particular European country, and can therefore provide very targeted information on that country.
