Call for proposals EaSI - EURES 2018 - Targeted Mobility scheme "Your first Eures Job" VP/2018/009 Closed!


The objective of the call is to support the development of actions for the work placement of young EU citizens aged 18-35 in an EU, Iceland and Norway territory country other than their country of residence and to help address mobility obstacles.

Jobseekers and employers (SMEs in particular) are the main target groups. Priority will be given to vulnerable sub-groups, notably unemployed young people, including long- term unemployed.

Projects can cover all economic sectors and types of occupations, though specific sectors may be given priority in accordance with the demand side or the supply side needs in the countries covered by the action. Support can be provided not only to candidates who wish to find work in a new country but also to those who may wish to return to their country of origin or former country of residence.


To this end, the action supported by the projects shall have at least the six following components:

  1. Creation of a partnership, involving as much as possible different labour market organisations dealing with specific work-integration fields and support to jobseekers (in particular for the most vulnerable).
  2. Testing of cooperation arrangements in the partnership between EURES member organisations and other labour market organisations
  3. Provision of services comprising at least labour market information and assistance with offers and vacancies, matching these with candidates and the preparation of the placement /recruitment in the Member States covered by the action.
  4. In the context of the services indicated under 3) above, provision of support measures and direct financial support to both young people and employers (in particular SME's)
  5. Development of post-placement support measures (welcome and integration services) and/or other tailor-made support, e.g. coaching packs;
  6. Development of services and support measures referred to under points 3 to 5 also for placement of candidates in traineeships and/or apprenticeships in another country (notably for open-market traineeships) by applying tools at national level in combination with the tools made available by EURES.
