Europe – European job portal to open to private employment services

20 January 2014

The European Commission last week announced its proposal to improve EURES (European Employment Services). The job portal was created in 1993 in cooperation between the EC, the Public Employment Services of the EEA Member States, and other partner organisations.

Denis Pennel, Managing Director of Eurociett, commented: “The opening up of the EURES, the pan-European job search network to new actors; including private employment services and social partners, is good news for both jobseekers and employers. Fostering partnerships between employment services will deliver better and faster matching of supply with demand in the labour market, and promote work mobility.” 

“The Commission’s move to strengthen the role of EURES as an intra-EU recruitment and placement tool recognises the realities of today’s labour markets. Intermediaries, such as private employment services, play an increasingly crucial role in identifying job opportunities and supporting workers in making geographic and occupations transitions to fill the vacancies available,” he added.
