I feel involved

All European employers can contribute to the success of the European Solidarity Corps. You included! All you have to do is offer a solidarity-related placement to a young European. Some examples of assignments: helping elderly people, helping refugees, environmental protection, literacy training.

I want to invest in Europe’s youth

Diversify your recruitment pool by including young Europeans with a different kind of experience. It is a good way to share skills and put their specific know-how to good use on a day-to-day basis!

An energy boost for my company

There is no such thing as working with young people with a wide range of qualifications and skills, willing to get involved and contribute to the future of my company. A precious resource to reinforce my activities, for the benefit of citizens and society.

I can get financial support for the integration programme

Do you have a workforce of no more than 250 employees? In that case, you are eligible for a financial aid to integrate the new recruit. The amount varies depending on the scale of the programme.

I will be able to integrate young people who are rapidly operational

Depending on your project, the employment adviser will shortlist one or more candidates. These young people will receive some preparatory training before they come, as well as monitoring during their placement, and if necessary, some language training.

I will be supported

The employment advisers’ role is to support the young people, but also the employer: assistance with recruitment, administrative support, and help with the formalities. These advisers can also help you draw up your integration programme for new recruits: for example, to familiarise them with the company’s goals and values, to enable them to develop specific abilities and skills, to provide professional tutoring, administrative assistance, offer language training, etc.

The approach is adapted to my needs

You can hire young Europeans and pay them under a job, apprenticeship or traineeship contract, lasting between 2 and 12 months. There is a solution to every issue. When you are put in contact with the young Europeans, the adviser in charge of monitoring them will also facilitate your exchanges and meetings.

I can be useful

By training these young people, by developing their skills, by trusting them, I will be helping them build their future. I will be widening their prospects. They will be helping certain parts of the population, and I help them in return. This is also an opportunity to turn the spotlight on the socially responsible nature of my company’s activities. A solidarity-based initiative in line with its values is a win-win situation for everyone.

I will be playing the European solidarity card

Europe is built every day by the encounters between its citizens and the work they do together in companies. By integrating these young people from other countries, I will be helping to weave fruitful links within the European Union and give concrete expression to European solidarity. It is also an initiative that can help me create or strengthen my company’s own European network.
