About the Toolkit

The European Migrant Advisors Toolkit (EMAT) is a set of tools for individuals and organisations who advise others on how to find employment. It is intended to support them to work with migrants who are seeking employment in their new country in the European Union (EU).

The toolkit looks at the common issues that an employment advice worker in the EU will face when working with migrant clients, regardless of where those clients have come from.

No form of advice or guidance can be 100 per cent specific for all situations. The labour market, welfare systems and agencies that support people into employment differ from country to country. What is appropriate in Prague will not necessarily be appropriate in Paris, and what works in London may not work at all in Lisbon. However the EU is tied together by various common practices, traditions, laws and history. It has a common legal framework and pools resources for economic development and to address social issues common to all countries. The toolkit aims to provide common principles, useful resources and to promote good practice for employment advice work with migrant job seekers.
