The EURES network is currently looking for new partners to offer services of international recruitment and employment. The new collaborators may also be providers of other services in international mobility.
The new service providers fund their activities in a market-driven manner. EURES services may charge a fee from the employer, but not from the jobseeker.
EURES Finland helps businesses and employers find international experts.
The tailored EURES service consists of needs assessment, starting of the recruitment process, support for employers throughout the recruiting process, as well as time and guidance for employees from outside the country.
Recruitment can be selectively targeted at specific countries whose own EURES network supports the process.
The EURES portal and national employment sites are also available for the marketing of individual jobs.
The EURES recruitment service starts from the needs of employers. EURES Finland arranges various network recruitment events in Finland every year. Employers and businesses located in Finland can also take part in events organised by other countries and vice versa.

The Finnish EURES network works together and in a coordinated manner, and training is organised for the EURES network of Finland and the other countries.
Preparations are being made for one coordinated channel through which available vacancies and information on the jobseekers’ profiles of all EURES participants will be moved from Finland to the EURES portal. The participants can then utilise the same information on their own websites and vacancy listings.
Finland will deploy a technical infrastructure in connection with the EURES portal, which members and collaborators can then use for transferring their information.
Participants involved in the coordinated and protected transfer of information on vacancies and jobseeker’s profiles to the EURES portal will set up a technical infrastructure required in each country for joining the coordinated channel.
