I am not a EU national but I have a legal residence permit. Can I register on Reactivate?

No, only EU nationals are eligible to participate in Reactivate.


I am less than 35 years old. May I participate in Reactivate?

No, only citizens over 35 years old are eligible. However, you can participate in the Your first EURES job initiative which targets 18-35 jobseekers and offers similar support.


I have been supported by YFEJ in the past. Can I apply for another job through Reactivate?

Yes, all candidates will be given equal treatment, irrespective of the fact of having already studied or worked in another Member State, including with support from any EU mobility scheme or programme.


I received a job offer from an enterprise for a job placement in another EU country. Can I benefit from Reactivate financial support?

Jobseekers must always register on Reactivate Platform. It is not possible to benefit from Reactivate support if the recruitment has been carried out by an organisation not partner of the initiative.


I saw a vacancy for a job in another EU country adapted to my profile. What can I do?

You can contact us, register and signpost a specific job vacancy. We may agree to contact the employer to obtain further information, offer him/her the possibility to use the Reactivate services and help you to get the job.


Is it compulsory to speak a foreign language to participate and obtain a job?

The reply to this question is two-fold.

On the one hand, you must consider that your CV inside the platform has to be filled in English. It is important to use a correct English as the evaluation of your profile will be based on this CV. Therefore, if you do not speak English well, we suggest you to ask for help to someone with a good level of English knowledge.

On the other hand, the knowledge of English, or of another foreign language, is not compulsory to participate in the initiative, nor is it always essential to obtain a work abroad. The importance of the language depends a lot on the professional domain. For some typologies of jobs, it can be fundamental to be fluent in a specific language, while for others, other competencies are more important (for example for technical jobs).

However, in our experience, language knowledge is very often one of the requirements inserted in the job vacancies, and in some countries, such as Germany, it is almost always obligatory.

Considering the relevance of language knowledge in professional mobility processes, Reactivate provides specific support by covering part of the costs of language training courses for pre-selected candidates, organizing preparatory training and offering financial support to SMEs organizing language training for newly-hired workers.
