The Targeted Mobility Schemes (TMS) project helps employers in recruiting employees from another EU country, Norway or Iceland, and jobseekers in finding employment within the EU, Norway or Iceland. The project works in similar way as Your first EURES job project but does not have an upper age limit of 35.
Financial support may be granted to the employer to cover some of the costs of induction training and integration to the new country.
The amount of support granted to the employer is determined on the basis of the type of integration programme provided and the country of employment. The amount of support is about 810–2000 euros/employee.
1. The employee to be hired must be a citizen of the EU, Norway or Iceland aged 18 or older who is legally resident in an EU Member State, Norway or Iceland
