EURES TMS is designed to support the development of actions for the work placement of EU/EEA (Norway and Iceland) jobseekers over 18 years, including the most vulnerable (e.g., unemployed, and long-term unemployed, low-skilled people and in general those loosely attached to the labour market), helping them to find a job opportunity in another EU/EEA country (Norway, Iceland) primarily in economic sectors with hard-to-fill vacancies. The granted projects shall provide customised employment services, facilitating jobseekers to address mobility obstacles.
The action being strongly result-oriented, it should contribute to:
- address labour market needs;
- 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, labour and skills shortages.
- enhance the service catalogue of the EURES organisations;
- foster public-private partnerships within EURES
The actions which may be funded under this call shall support the implementation of the EURES TMS scheme, i.e. they will ensure the provision of customised employment services and include innovative working methods to foster the placement and integration of mobile workers in the host country(ies), combined with financial incentives.
Activities under this call should also contribute to the 2023 European Year of Skills and to the 30th anniversary of EURES in 2024.
