Job Mobility in Europe
EURES, or EURopean Employment Services, is a cooperation network between the European Commission, the Public Employment Services of the European Economic Area (EEA) Member States and other partner organisations. The purpose of EURES is to provide information, advice and recruitment/placement (job-matching) services for the benefit of workers and employers, as well as any citizen wishing to benefit from the principle of the free movement of persons.
Through the EURES job mobility database, Irish Jobseekers can look for employment in 29 European countries and Non-Irish Jobseekers can find out about working in Ireland. Employers can use the same database to help them recruit From, and Outside, Europe.
In order to recognise skills, qualifications and experience gained by workers in other countries, there are a series of Recognition of Qualifications initiatives, including Europass and Certificates of Experience.
The National Resources Centre for Vocational Guidance (NRCVG) in Ireland provides information on all vocational training opportunities within the European Union. European mobility or graduate programmes include the Overseas Graduate Programme, Leonardo da Vinci Programme and the Science Challenge Programme.
