European Commission proposes to improve EURES job search network

This week the European Commission proposed a set of new rules for the pan-European job search network EURES helping citizens to make the most informed choice possible when it comes to moving abroad for work.

According to the European Commission, once adopted by the EU’s Council of Ministers and the European Parliament, the proposal would allow EURES to:
– offer on the EURES web portal more job vacancies in the EU, including those from private employment services. Job seekers all over Europe would have instant access to the same vacancies, and registered employers would be able to recruit from an extensive pool of CVs.
– carry out automatic matching through job vacancies and CVs
– give basic information on the EU labour market and EURES to any jobseeker or employer throughout the Union
– offer candidates and employers mobility support services to facilitate recruitment and integrate workers in the new post abroad
– improve coordination and information exchange on national labour shortages and surpluses among Member States, making mobility an integral part of their employment policies.
