EURES (the EU job mobility portal) are offering grants to boost employability by gaining some work in another country. The money has come from a company who is giving its social responsibility budget to help young people 🙂
To be eligible you must be:
- Aged under 30
- Live in one of the 28 EU member states or in Norway, Iceland, Switzerland or Liechtenstein.
- Able to present an employment opportunity of 4 months or longer – if you do not have one EURES advisers can help you find something but because of the tight deadline this may suit someone who already has an opportunity in mind.
- The job must be your first working experience abroad.
Ten grants of 2,500 Euros are available. The money can be spent on language courses, travel, rent or anything else you need to make the experience happen.
Deadline is 31st October.
