The proposed EURES regulation is one a series of measures to facilitate free movement of workers.

The pan-European job search network EURES would be strengthened to provide more job offers, increase the likelihood of job matches and help employers, notably small and medium businesses, to fill job vacancies faster and better, under a proposal just presented by the European Commission.

The proposed new rules would make EURES more efficient, recruitments more transparent and cooperation among Member States stronger.

Eures will make use of a European classification for occupations, skills and qualifications, ESCO, being developed by the European Commission, in close collaboration with stakeholders and Cedefop.
