Employer

Employers can apply for financial support when they employ a young person 18-35 years of age from another EU country, Norway or Iceland.

Financial support is given for language training, job introduction or in-house training. The program can be given internally or externally in the company and can apply to one or more new employees. The amount of the financial support given depends on in which country you offer employment.

The objective of the program is to help the new employees get settled. The application must be submitted to "Your first EURES job"  latest the day before the starting date of employment. After our approval we will send you a payment request to be submitted. The project will verify all information given by jobseekers and employers.
