THE SLOVAK labour centre has signed bilateral agreements with its counterparts in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic that will allow the centre to directly offer jobs in these countries, the TASR newswire wrote.

“This will secure more dynamic access to jobs for Slovaks in these countries,” said Ivan Juráš, the director general of the Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Centre (ÚPSVaR), specifying that this cooperation would take place within EURES, the European Employment Services project. He added that these three countries have a significantly better ratio between vacancies and job seekers than Slovakia.

EURES is an employment service network administered by the European Commission. Its main goal is to support greater labour mobility within the European Union.
