There will be one-to-one workshops to assist jobseekers with their CVs.

EURES advisers from EU Member States including France, Germany, Spain and Sweden will be at the event to advise on employment opportunities in these countries. EURES advisers are trained specialists who provide information and guidance to jobseekers and employers interested in the European labour market. The service is free of charge.

There will also be a “Business to Business” Session from 10am to 11:30am where employers will have the opportunity to network with Irish and European EURES advisers.

On the same day, EURES Ireland will also be hosting an “Online Job Day” to assist Irish employers to recruit workers for hard to fill vacancies in sectors with skills shortages.

Note for Editors
EURES (European Employment Service) is a European-wide initiative that has been in place since 1993 and assists jobseekers to take up employment within the EU.  It is a network of all the public employment services in the European Union and the European Economic Area.  Through EURES, public employment services share their employment vacancies and services with each other.

The labour market in the EU is a single market and all vacancies in Member States are available to all EU citizens. 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.

Any such employment opportunities brought to the attention of jobseekers by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection outside of Ireland 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 other EU countries in the wider European market and, equally, it provides jobseekers abroad with an opportunity to find work with companies based here in Ireland.  The role of EURES is to provide information and advice on job opportunities in the EU/EEA.   By providing information and advice to clients prior to departure, we ensure that all those interested in taking up employment outside of Ireland have appropriate information on job opportunities abroad before they leave.

EURES Ireland has, over the past few years, organised a number of successful jobs fairs around the country.  One of our most recent jobs fair was held in the Blanchardstown Centre in 2017 and in excess of 6,000, people attended this event.
