Financial support under Reactivate 35+ facilitates the recruitment of unemployed professionals aged 35+ from another EU country.
The European Commission project helps employers in recruiting employees from another EU country and job seekers in finding employment within the EU. The employee must be aged 35 or more.
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 in which the employer is situated. The amount of support is about 810–2000 euros/employee.
The employee may also apply for support for the job interview trip and relocation.
