Recruiting from Europe

Advertising your Job in Europe

Employers who have difficulty recruiting staff in Ireland or who wish to broaden their skill base can get access to jobseekers in other European Economic Area (EEA) countries. FÁS is part of a European Commission network called EURES (EURopean Employment Services) that links the databases of European Public Employment Services.

EURES can assist by:

  • Advertising vacancies for the attention of jobseekers in Europe via the FÁS Jobs Ireland website or by phoning the FÁS National Contact Centre at 1800 611 116 (from Northern Ireland 00 353 46 973 8070);
  • Providing specially tailored European recruitment projects for individual employers. Contact your local FÁS Eures Adviser for more information.

Database of European Jobseekers

The EURES service gives employers access to a database of European jobseekers looking to work in Ireland. This database is called 'CV-Search' and is available on the EURES European Job Mobility portal. The EURES service is free of charge to both jobseekers and employers. To register phone 00 800 4080 4080.

EURES Advisers (European Mobility Experts)

EURES Advisers are FÁS staff who are specially trained in European mobility matters. They can explain the EURES service to employers and, if required, organise a recruitment project in Europe, for example, if employers are having difficulties in filling large numbers of vacancies, a special European recruitment event can be organised using FÁS' partner organisations in other EEA Member States.
