TARGETED MOBILITY SCHEMES
The aim of job mobility schemes is to make it easier for interested candidates to find employment, practical training or apprenticeship, and for employers to find skilled workers in a wider European area. In addition to recruitment and placement services, financial support for workers and employers is also available.
