Employers are invited to provide an educated young person with the first work experience


National services

In order to promote the integration of young people into the labour market, the State Agency for Employment (SEA) shall initiate a new event within the framework of the youth guarantee - “first work experience for young people”. In implementing the measure, the SEA registered young people aged 18-29 who have vocational or higher education and who currently do not attend a full-time studio will be able to work on their employer for a year to obtain a work experience.

For the first half of the year, the SNA will pay a grant of EUR 160 (eur 240 for young people with disabilities), while in the second half of the year, THE CIS grant will be 100 euros per month (eur 200 for young people with disabilities). On the other hand, the employer will have to provide a co-payment for the salaries of young people, which should not be less than the minimum wage laid down in the country.
What is the benefit of a employer?
1. THE SEA is partly funded by a salary for young people for one year;
2. A working manager who receives monthly 50% of the national minimum wage with the recruited young people;
3. THE NVA shall bear the costs of carrying out health checks (where appropriate);
4. One-off grant for personal protective equipment at the start of work, not more than 50 euros;
5. In order to adapt jobs to young people with disabilities, THE SEA will cover up to €711.
