Search for a job safely and fast through the EURES portal

The European employment services (EURES) is a European cooperation network between the European Commission, the European Labour Authority (ELA), national public employment services and other Members and Partners in Europe.

There are nearly 4 million job vacancies on the EURES portal and employers can search for candidates through a CV database. Around 1 000 EURES Advisers, working in the EURES Member and Partner organisations, are providing support prior, during and after the recruitment process.

Disclosing your personal information

As a jobseeker you can create your CV, highlight your experience and preferences. You can choose not to disclose any personal data on your profile, i.e. your phone number, email address, address, name of previous employers and even your photo and name.

Your published anonymised CV will be accessible to trusted EURES Advisers (dedicated personnel working in the EURES Member and Partner organisations), as well as to a selection of carefully validated and registered employers. If they want to get in touch with you, they can do so through the EURES portal; employers will not have access to your email address.

How to register on the EURES portal

Registering on the EURES portal only takes a few minutes. Follow these steps:

First you create an EU Login account, then secure this by implementing a Two-Factor Authentication, e.g. via SMS on your mobile phone or the EU Login mobile app. Setting up your EU Login is a mandatory step, which increases the security of your account and data in the EURES portal.

Afterwards, create your EURES jobseeker account and publish your CV and profile. This will make it available to registered employers across the EU.

Please follow the steps below carefully.

  1. Step 1

    Create an EU Login

    If you already have an EU Login go to step 2.

    Important: EU Login accounts using social account sign in (Like Facebook etc) will not work for EURES user account registration

    *Please refer to the EU Login help page or this video for more information

  2. Step 2

    Add 2FA from your EU Login account

    Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is required to access EURES services.

    We recommend the use of the EU mobile app verification method, as the Mobile Phone with SMS authentication method may not work for all countries.

    *Please refer to the EU Login help page or this video for more information on single and multi-factor authentications.

  3. Step 3

    Register as a EURES jobseeker

    By registering for a EURES jobseeker account you will be able to create your CV online and make it available to employers and employment services across Europe.

  4. Step 4
