Unemployed Youth in Europe – 50% are reluctant to change their place of residence for a job

50% of unemployed people aged 20-34 in the European Union (EU) are reluctant to change their place of residence for a job, 21% are ready to move for a job but only in the same country, whereas 12% would consider moving to another EU Member State. 17% would even be ready to move for a job outside EU.

The education level of the young people plays a role. The young unemployed with a high level of education are more ready to move for work (23% ready to move in the same country and 16% ready to relocate inside the EU) than young unemployed with a medium education level (20% and 11% respectively) or young unemployed with a low level of education (21% and 10%).
The majority of employed people aged 20-34 in the EU did not relocate for their current job (90%). The share of those who actually did move to another
EU Member State was only 1% of the young employed, while 8% moved inside the country for their current job.

Job mobility within the country rises among young employed with a higher level of education (13% have moved) compared with people with a medium education (6%) and those with a low level of education (4%). However, educational differences are not so significant for young employed who moved within the EU: 2% of those with high level of education and 2% of those with low education changed Member State for work reasons compared with 1% of young people with a medium education level.

Chosen excerpts by Job Market Monitor. Read the whole story at  Half of unemployed young people in the EU ready to relocate for a job

Job Market Monitor editor’s note : the original title of that publication doesn’t fit  with the article content. It should say that “Half of unemployed young people in the EU are not ready to relocate for a job”
