The EURES Ireland/Northern Ireland Cross-Border Partnership was established to help make things easier for those who wish to commute daily or weekly across the border in order to work. It does this by attempting to overcome at least some of the obstacles which people face.
In particular it provides pathways to the information required by people moving across the border, for example, jobseekers that need information on employment and training opportunities on both sides of the border, on taxation and the social security systems.
The Partnership also aims to assist employers by providing them with access to a larger pool of labour i.e. jobseekers living on both sides of the border. Advice is available to employers on a range of cross-border recruitment issues.
The Partnership is funded by the European Union through the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI)
The Partnership covers all of Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland (Louth, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Sligo and Leitrim).
