EU launches new online job-search tool for Ukrainian refugees


A new online job-search tool launched today will help people fleeing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, to successfully find a job in the European Union.

After registering with the EU Talent Pool pilot initiative, those under temporary protection will be able to upload their CVs, so that their profiles can be available to more than 4,000 employers, national public employment services and private employment agencies. 

The EU Talent Pool pilot, available in English, Ukrainian and Russian, 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.

The European Commission also intends to extend the Temporary Protection Directive for Ukrainians fleeing the war until 2024. In addition, the possibility of simplifying procedures for those who return to Ukraine and are then forced to return back to the EU is being discussed.
