• aged 35+?
  • a national and legal resident of an EU Member State?
  • unable to find a job or training opportunity in your country?
  • willing to relocate and work in another EU Member State?

If so, then Reactivate could be the solution for you.

What’s in it for me?

Reactivate is a European Union job mobility scheme to help EU citizens aged at least 35 to find a job, traineeship or apprenticeship opportunity in another EU country and to help employers find qualified workforce. It aims to match jobseekers, and in particular unemployed people, with remunerated employment offers across Europe. Job and apprenticeship placements must have a minimum duration of 6 months (a shorter period for traineeships may apply).

Through Reactivate you can receive information, job search, matching and recruitment assistance. You may also be eligible for financial support to attend an interview abroad, as well as to cover costs such as language training, recognition of qualifications or relocation to the destination country.

What qualifications do I need?

Reactivate is open to candidates with different levels of education and/or work experience.

How can I take part?

The Reactivate guide sets out the conditions and rules governing participation.

Please find below the links to the lead employment services and their partner employment services offering the scheme. If your country does not yet offer these services or some country web links are not active, you can contact the lead employment services.
