Do you want to give people with a refugee or migration background an opportunity to do an internship or volunteer service with you?

Or are you looking for junior employees and want to open your company to refugees or migrants in the EU?

Have a look at our approach. We are happy to support you with legal and organisational aspects within the mobility programme.

We give you advice

European citizens have many opportunities to go abroad, complete an internship or have experiences important to self development. For people who only have a residence permit, e.g. political asylum, this is not as easy.

Many organisations and associations benefit from hosting a diverse group of individuals with varied competences.

If you offer apprenticeships, voluntary services or internships and would like to employ refugees or people with a residence permit from another EU country, contact us and we will share our knowledge with you.

To have a consultation:

If you live close to our office you can meet in person with one of our staff members, otherwise we will hold the consultation via phone or online.

Find out here, in which cities we have a moveurope! support desk.

We speak English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese. If necessary we can arrange a translator.

We accompany you

If you decide to become a partner of moveurope! and give people with a refugee or migration background an opportunity to do an apprenticeship, internship, or volunteer service with your organisation, we can support you in finding a person for the vacancy.

Since there are several things to consider, we will accompany you in all steps before, during and after the mobility programme, this includes legal and organisational aspects.

So far, our knowledge and experience regarding open migration pathways via the visa process has been related mostly to Germany. However, with our european network we can accompany people wanting to migrate to other European countries as well.

We inform (you)

Together with our team of trainers and experts, we regularly organise and host info events and workshops for employers and organisations (available online and offline). We present our moveurope! framework and the open migration pathways via an educational visa to fill vacant apprenticeship, internship or voluntary positions.

(Training calendar coming soon)

If needed, you can also get a workshop for your whole team. Please contact us.

There are different national types of voluntary service and also the European voluntary service (ESC programme).
