EURES Estonia helps Estonian companies find employees from other European countries (including Norway, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and Iceland). Thanks to the free movement of labor in the European Union and the European Economic Area, recruiting from other European countries has become increasingly popular and also easier. EURES connects job seekers from other European countries with job offers from Estonian employers, advises both parties during the entire process and introduces the possibilities of working in Estonia at various events across Europe.

Success Stories

Success Stories

EURES was successful for some positions like customer support, driver training and similar, especially when we needed someone who knows other languages. And it’s free so worth a try. Of course, it is not the best place to find IT or very qualified people but for entry-level and junior it is good.

If the purpose of a foreigner's stay in Estonia (except citizens of a member state of the European Union, a member state of the European Economic Area, and the Swiss Confederation) is to work here, he must have a residence permit for work. Before a foreigner can apply for it from the Police and Border Guard Board, the employer must generally have permission from the Unemployment Fund to employ a foreigner.
