30 years of EURES

Celebrating 30 Years of EURES: Fair Work Anywhere in Europe

What can we expect from the campaign?

As we gear up for an exciting 12-month celebration spanning 31 participating countries, we invite you to join us in commemorating three decades of EURES service. Our campaign, named '30 years of EURES: Fair Work Anywhere in Europe', promises a deep dive into EURES, exploring its evolution, successes, and the vital role it plays in fostering fair labour mobility across the continent.

Our journey through the campaign will touch on various key topics, including the EURES services, the reasons behind recruiting through EURES, and a glimpse into EURES today and tomorrow. We'll delve into the advantageous position EURES holds as both a digital and human service, exploring the innovative EURES Matching Engine, European Online Job Days, and how you can benefit from the different EURES services.

Discover how EURES addresses fair labour mobility, return mobility, digitalisation, energy transition, and tackles challenges such as labour shortages and skill development. Gain insights into the advantages of working or recruiting abroad and receive practical advice on legal and social aspects when working abroad or hiring internationally. See how EURES seamlessly integrates into the European work journey.

Why are you important to us?

This celebration is not just about the network—it's for you! Our central campaign communication extends to internal audiences, multipliers, and stakeholders at European, national, and local levels. We're reaching out to employers, jobseekers, potential members, and partners to match more jobseekers with jobs.
