The Employment Agency is involved as a leading partner for Bulgaria in the pan-European campaign of the European Labor Authority for raising awareness among cross-border seasonal workers "Rights for all seasons". The aim is to address the need to promote fair and safe working conditions for seasonal workers employed in EU countries. Led by the European Labor Authority, together with the European Commission, the European Platform tackling undeclared work, the EURES network, EU countries and the social partners, the campaign officially starts on 15 June 2021 and will run until October 2021. Publication in social media networks can be found using the hashtag #Rights4AllSeasons.

To implement the activities of the campaign in our country, National Employment Agency will partner mainly with the Executive Agency "General Labour Inspectorate" (EA GLI) and invitations for partnership will be sent to other institutions and organizations involved in the rights of seasonal workers.

At the end of this week, wine lovers can celebrate both the Bulgarian holiday "Trifon Zarezan" and Valentine's Day.

This is a good occasion to pay attention to the top wine producers in the European Union. In order to get to the phase of producing wine, first workers are needed to harvest the grapes and create the final product. Often these are seasonal workers who come from another country. From the perspective of labour mobility, we will present you brief information about the seasonal work in the top 6 wine producers in Europe - Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Germany and Hungary.

The Covid-19 crisis posed a number of serious challenges to seasonal work. For this reason, it is necessary for workers to work legally with a labour contract and to know their labour rights in the country in which they work or want to work.

The starting initiative is one of the three strands of ELA's wider campaign on seasonal work "Rights for all seasons", in which recently the Employment Agency in Bulgaria took part. EURES Bulgaria is also getting involved in the relevant strand of the campaign, which will last from July to October 2021. The aim will be to raise awareness among jobseekers and employers of their rights, obligations and opportunities and to support fair recruitment in Europe.

The EURES support services are also expected to be promoted so that all countries can benefit fairly from seasonal work. The focus will be on recruitment in key sectors such as agri-food, tourism, hospitality and construction. It will rely on the large scope of the EURES network, which offers its services in 31 countries and is thus supporting the free movement of workers for more than 25 years.

The procedure for joining various organizations to the EURES network in Bulgaria continues to be active. The initiative was launched last year and three organizations have already taken advantage of this opportunity and gained the status of an accredited EURES member or partner.

In this way, the partnership circle is expanded, which provides a rich catalog of EURES services in the field of labor mobility and which participates in the exchange of jobs and profiles of jobseekers.


When you are starting out in your career, it can be difficult to know which route to take. Here are our top six tips to help you find the right career path.
  • 1. Think about your goals

Think about what you want from your career. A career goal could be a specific role – perhaps you have always dreamt of becoming a teacher, for example – or a specific achievement, like qualifying as an engineer or opening your own restaurant. It could also be something much less specific: perhaps you want to be in a career that involves helping other people or doing something creative? Having goals to aim for will help give direction to your career path.

  • 2. Know your own strengths

If you do not have any clear goals in mind, do not worry – not everyone knows what they want to do in their career. Start by thinking about your own strengths. Are you a ‘people person’ or do you work better alone? Are you good with words or do you prefer numbers? Would you be best suited to an active, physical job, or would you rather sit at a desk in an office? Simple questions like these can help you understand which jobs might be for you.
