The Network of the European Public Employment Services

Our Network members are the Public Employment Services (PES) of all 28 EU Member States as well as PES from the EEA Member States Norway and Iceland and the European Commission. The Network of European Public Employment Services - the PES Network - is welcoming you to gain an insight on who we are, what we do, how we do it, and why.

For further information we recommend the EU Commission website on Public Employment Services, here you can find for example our Knowledge Center or a range of shared PES practices. Practitioner´s toolkits, analytical papers, reports and inspiring practices as well as other learning outcomes from Public Employment Services across Europe can be explored. Our webpage and the related sites provide information for practitioners, researchers, stakeholders and the general public.

This activity has received financial support from the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation "EaSI" (2014-2020). For further information please consult:
