Youth Opportunity: offering youth job placements via European Solidarity Corps
The project “European Solidarity Corps for Youth” is part of the occupational strand of the European Solidarity Corps. It seeks to match potential employers and interested candidates.
This year the European Solidarity Corps is aiming to offer 6,000 fixed term work placements ranging from 2 to 12 months to young Europeans across the Union in occupations with a solidarity dimension. The European Solidarity Corps is a project funded by the European Union.
These work placements can be in form of a job, a traineeship, or an apprenticeship. The aim of the project is seek potential matches between employers and interested candidates.
For employers there are many advantages to the project including the possibility to benefit from financial support for integrating the youngster in the team (up to €2,000) if your organisation is an SME (i.e. 250 employees maximum) and having access to talented youngsters who are rapidly operational.
On the candidate’s side, the initiative can be a springboard for their professional future. Young Europeans (from the 28 member states), aged 18 to 30, can manifest their interest in taking part by registering in the dedicated section of the website https://escorps.eu/en/formulaire-candidats/.
The project website https://escorps.eu/en/ is the easiest entry door for both potential employers and interested candidates, and has all the information and requirements regarding the project.
