What aid tools of the EURES Slovakia network are offered to clients
The EURES network uses the most modern communication and internet tools in providing services to clients. The philosophy of aid tools is based on the clients’ needs and is focused on current and practically usable information in the sphere of simplifying the labour mobility in all EU/EEA countries. The http://www.eures.sk website is a specific tool in the information-advisory and mediatory activity which is adapted to the needs and requirements of citizens of the Slovak Republic. On this website, we offer variety of useful and practical information. Information on the site is provided in four languages (Slovak, English, German and French). The website is divided into four main sections.
These sections are oriented to various target spheres of services of the EURES network. The first is dedicated to all applicants interested in finding employment through the EURES network, where you can find a list of all job offers posted by EURES advisers in real time. Vacancies marked with the EURES logo were entered by a direct employer from an EU country. Job offers without the EURES logo belong to a foreign recruitment agency. In the lower part of the section, web links to partners of the EURES network are provided, where vacancies can be found through national vacancy portals. In case our clients do not find an appropriate vacancy in our national database, they can connect to the European EURES portal, which contains all vacancies at the level of EU/EEA member states. The second section is focused on cooperation with employers. It serves as detailed information source for establishing collaboration with employers who are interested in cooperation with the EURES network and want to employ clients mainly from the Slovak Republic. The third section, which is focused on living and working conditions in the EU/EEA countries, is particularly practical and useful. Through an integrated interactive map of the EU/EEA is possible to gain general information on all matters concerning the work contract, study or enterprise in the respective EU/EEA country. The last section is dedicated to cross-border partnerships and initiatives providing the cross-border mobility in the border regions of Slovakia. On the home page the informative section with “short news” can be found, which contains updated information.
The upper information bar of the website contains sub-sections oriented to general information about the EURES network, contacts, useful links of each EU/EEA countries, the photo-gallery, the site-map and the keyword search box. There is also the new clients’ forum of the EURES network, where clients can share their experience and join discussion topics.
What aid tools are offered by the European EURES portal http://www.eures.europa.eu
The European portal is an important communication tool of the European Commission which secures labour mobility on a trans-national principle of EURES networks and stock information from all the European Union. The portal successfully integrates and networks information from national levels and thus offers more extensive information for EU/EEA citizens. This communication tool primarily provides the opportunity to search for jobs and information on employment and study opportunities in Europe. In the first quarter of 2013, the portal integrated more than 1,490,000 vacancies into a common system.
An important aid tool of the European portal is also the CV database to which registered employers of the EURES network have access, thus enabling the selection of potential employees from the EU/EEA countries. Clients can register free into the CV database within the section “My EURES”. The EURES advisers who help employers to search for suitable candidates have access to the CVdatabase too. The European portal has had at its disposal more than 1,079,000 CVs in 2013, to which 30,250 registered employers have access. Through the EURES portal clients get also access to important information about the mobility of workers and they can directly communicate with more than 800 EURES advisers in the whole EU/EEA.
All the information is gathered from 31 European countries and is regularly updated. This portal can help you even to find out steps necessary when moving abroad. To this the life and work section can be of help, which provides information on the labour market in the respective country, life and work conditions and the regulations of free movement of the workforce.
The EURES network communicates also through social media. We are on Facebook,
The EURES network simplifies labour mobility with an effort to contribute to a maximum satisfaction of clients also through the above-mentioned modern aid tools; and we believe that the above-mentioned data from 2013 are an indicator of a permanent interest of citizens and employers of the European Union and the European Economic Area in labour mobility on a pan - European level.
