Call for proposals 2021 - EURES Targeted Mobility Scheme (TMS) ESF-2021-EURES-TMS Closed!


The overall objective of this call for proposals is to ensure around 4 000 placements over the duration of the action in economic sectors with hard-to-fill vacancies. The action being strongly result-oriented, it should contribute to:

  1. enhance the service catalogue of the EURES organisations;
  2. foster public-private partnerships within EURES and,
  3. address labour market needs;
  4. improve the conditions for jobseekers and workers to exercise their right of freedom of movement across the EU and to address labour markets' imbalances and skills shortages


The action aims at reaching two different target groups:

  1. 1. young people aged 18-35, and
  2. 2. the age group above of 35+ years

in order to find a job, traineeship or apprenticeship in another EU/EEA country.

The action targets the relieving of labour market imbalances and the filling of hard-to-fill vacancies as identified in national/EU labour market studies or data sources.
The activities will cover the provision of direct services to jobseekers or job changers and employers notably:

  • information, recruitment, matching and placement;
  • pre- and post-placement support to customers (e. g. profiling and pre-selection of candidates, language training or other training needs, mentoring support for trainees and apprentices).
  • direct financial support to jobseekers (job interview, relocation trip costs, language trainings, recognition of qualifications and diplomas) to contribute to the costs borne by them and financial support to SMEs to implement an integration programme for the newly recruited candidate(s).
