Further information on the EURES Service

EURES (European Employment Service) is a network of all the public employment services in the EU and the European Economic Area. It assists jobseekers by providing information and advice on job opportunities across the EU/EEA. Through EURES, public employment services share their employment vacancies and services with each other. The service is free of charge. Further information is available from the website

For Jobseekers:

The two main obstacles for Irish jobseekers in availing of opportunities in the European Labour Market are language and financial support. EURES Ireland provides key supports to address these challenges for jobseekers. Any employment opportunities outside of Ireland brought to the attention of jobseekers by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection are completely voluntary and people who do not avail of any such opportunities will not lose their social welfare entitlements here. It is an opportunity for jobseekers in Ireland to seek work in the wider European market and equally. It also provides jobseekers abroad with an opportunity to find work with companies based here in Ireland where such vacancies cannot be filled by jobseekers in Ireland.
For Employers:
Supporting employers with specialist hard to fill vacancies including language skills is a key objective of EURES Ireland to help attract and retain multinational companies based in Ireland particularly in the Technology and Business Services sectors.  The EU labour market is a single market and all vacancies in every Member State are available to all citizens in every Member State. There is a legal obligation on the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection to make every European vacancy available to Irish citizens. In the same way every Irish vacancy is available on an equal basis to every European citizen.
