  • PDF

"A flourishing economy across the Mediterranean is key to reach our shared objectives of stability and prosperity.

Connecting job seekers and employers across EU and the Mediterranean

  • PDF

Designed under the DAEDALUS project, a new online portal for job seekers was launched on last month as part of the World Social Work Day. For the first time ever, an online tool allows young job seekers and entrepreneurs to find work opportunities at Mediterranean level.

Encouraging worker mobility

The rate of unemployment amongst young people is often over 30% in many Mediterranean countries. To address this problem of underemployment, the DAEDALUS project therefore bets on labour mobility. The platform created by DAEDALUS seeks to help young people to find work around the Basin - if not in their hometown then in another one. Rather than immigrating to a country where they have no connections and then looking for employment, young people can arrange a job first and then establish residence in the new location.
