Your first EURES job for a young person
Financial support for finding a job in another EU country
Your first EURES job project aims to help young people aged 18–35 find a job in another EU country. You may also receive financial support to cover some of the costs involved.
Your first EURES job may help you if you wish to

- change you professional orientation
You may seek assistance from Your first EURES job project if you are

When you have found a vacancy in another EU country and agreed on a job interview, you may receive financial support for

Conditions for the support

- Financial support for a job interview and/or relocation is no longer granted when the work tasks are related to Business support/Call Centre operations.
Support for language training, recognition of qualifications and supplementary relocation allowance
- When you have received confirmation that relocation allowance has been granted to you, you may also apply for support for language training and recognition of qualifications and for supplementary relocation allowance based on special needs.
- The decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.
- The confirmation of receiving an allowance based on special needs must be obtained in advance, before you start language training or the process for the recognition of qualifications. The need for supplementary relocation assistance must also be established in advance.
- Expenses are reimbursed retroactively against receipt.
Support for traineeship or apprenticeship
- EURES Italy grants support for work, traineeship or apprenticeship to applicants aged 18–35. To apply you must register at the ClicLavoro CV bank. When a suitable vacancy is found, the project staff contacts the applicant and tells what kind of a job they have to offer. The applicant then decides, together with the project staff, on how to proceed. The focus is on tasks relating to tourism and on the logistics, engineering and healthcare sectors.
