About EURES TMS - Italian Project ANPAL EURES NCO

EURES - Targeted Mobility Scheme (TMS) is a project funded by the European Commission through the Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) programme, aimed at promoting a high level of quality and sustainable employment, guaranteeing adequate and decent social protection, combating social exclusion and poverty, and improving working conditions.

EURES is a European cooperation network of employment services, launched in 1994 to facilitate the free movement of workers and covering all EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

EURES TMS is aimed at enhancing the match between labour demand and vacancies in all EU member States plus Norway and Iceland, fostering fair and voluntary circulation of workers and addressing labour market mismatch and skills shortage.

The partnership

The project is coordinated by the EURES National Coordination Office Italy - Anpal and implemented in partnership with 13 co-applicants (EURES Bulgaria, EURES Cyprus, EURES France, EURES Portugal, EURES Romania, EURES Spain, EURES The Netherlands, CLL Language Centres - BE, Dian – GR, Eurodesk Italy - IT, Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini S.r.l. SB - IT, Città metropolitan Rma Capitale/Capitale Lavoro – IT, Sapienza University of Rome – IT) and 15 associated organisations (EURES Croatia, EURES Malta, Employment regional centre DWUP - PL, Regional centre in Olsztyn - PL, Language Lab - IT, Unioncamere - IT, the regional Employment Agency of Emilia-Romagna, Piedmont, Province of Trento, Sardinia, and the Lazio, Marche, Piedmont, Puglia, Friuli-Venezia Giulia Regions in Italy).

The partnership covers a total of 13 EU Countries represented by EU EURES offices, national and international public and private bodies, language schools, a University, a representative body, a EU network and the EURES Italy network.

Main purpose of the project

EURES TMS consolidate and renew the approach developed by the project partnership in the previous Your first EURES job and Reactivate projects, by enhancing the capacity to attract labour demand and facilitate work based placements, allowing and supporting employers to post vacancies directly on the project platform system, simplifying the process of advertising vacancies, establishing direct links with employers and sectoral associations in different EU Countries, spreading on line recruitment systems, attracting SMEs willing to recruit from other Member States and serving low skilled or disadvantaged target groups.

The action combines tailor-made recruitment, matching, training and placement services with financial support, addressed to EU jobseekers finding a job, an apprenticeship or a traineeship in another EU country and employers interested to find candidates for their organisation.

How to participate as Employer

The first step to participate in EURES Targeted Mobility Scheme (TMS) is to register on the Platform. The registration is easy, takes just few minutes and requires only basic information.

One of the project Advisers will contact the Employer as soon as s/he registers, to introduce s/he to the TMS initiative and procedures. We will provide Employer all the support s/he might need to launch job, apprenticeship or traineeship vacancies.

Once the vacancies are defined, the Adviser will select within the CVs present on the project platform the candidates best suited to the employer needs and will send her/him a list of possible candidates. Employer will receive a first selection of candidates and organise on-line or face-to-face interviews.

When Company/Organisation recruits through EURES TMS the Adviser will make sure you access all the available measures and financial benefits.

If the Employer needs a very specific profile or open a high number of vacancies, we can launch a tailored communication campaign to gather the best candidates.

How to participate as Jobseeker

The procedure is very simple: candidates must only register in EURES TMS Platform and fill in their CV. We collect job, traineeship and apprenticeship vacancies from enterprises throughout Europe. We will contact candidates if we have a vacancy adapted to the candidates profile.

Candidates can regularly check in their dashboard if there are vacancies available and apply directly, if interested. They can also contact a project adviser if they find an interesting offer in the EURES portal.
