On the 10th of October 2022, the European Commission published the EU Talent Pool pilot, available in English, Ukrainian and Russian, with the aim of matching job seekers and employers.
The tool is implemented through the EURES portal , a job-searching portal managed by the European Labour Authority. It brings together national employment services, private employment agencies and employers across the EU. EURES contains over 3 million job vacancies and 4,000 employers, and new employers are welcome to sign up to it. The EU Talent Pool pilot is open to all job seekers who benefit from temporary protection under the EU Temporary Protection Directive , or adequate protection under national law providing them the right to work. For Member States, participation in the EU Talent Pool pilot is voluntary.
After registration, the tool guides job seekers through a process where they can identify the skills they have and upload their CV. The CVs published in the EU Talent Pool pilot will be visible to public employment services in all participating countries as well as to registered employers in all countries who are part of the European cooperation network of employment services (EURES) . Job seekers can also browse through all job vacancies published on the EURES portal.
The pilot project launched this week will build into a wider EU Talent Pool as proposed in the Skills and Talent package. The EU Talent Pool is one of the key deliverables of the New Pact on Migration and Asylum which aims at to attracting talent to the EU and support integration in local communities.
