Anne Main – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Work and Pensions

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Anne Main on 2016-04-08.

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how much the Government has contributed to the Your first EURES job scheme; how many vacancies have been filled under that scheme in the UK since 2012; and how many UK workers have found work in the EU under that scheme.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The UK Government has not contributed any financial resources to the Your First EURES Job project. As this project is led by the EU Commission, the UK Government does not collect or hold information relating to the number of EU job seekers that have found jobs in the UK, or the number of UK jobseekers that have found work elsewhere in the EU through Your First EURES Job.
