image of Building an EU Talent Pool

How can the European Union become more attractive for talented professionals looking for job opportunities worldwide? Can EU-level action support employers, private and public stakeholders in each Member State to better leverage international recruitment into the Single Market? This report presents a new overview of the obstacles that continue to hamper the attraction and recruitment of skills from outside Europe, and discusses the role of both public and private initiatives to help overcome these barriers. It provides a comparative analysis of the Expression of Interest (EoI) system of migration management as implemented in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and assesses its potential to address the needs of the European labour migration system. The report presents several options and variants for adapting the EoI, step by step and EU-wide, and examines their feasibility, constraints and advantages.

Executive summary

How can the European Union as a whole become more attractive for talented professionals who are looking for job opportunities worldwide? Is there scope for action at the EU-level to support employers, private and public stakeholders in each Member State to better leverage international recruitment into the Single Market for inclusive growth? To what extent could the Expression of Interest (EoI) model of skilled migration management offer inspiration for such action? What elements of the EoI model are most promising for adaptation in the European context? To address these questions, the European Commission asked the OECD to provide a comparative report on labour migration policies and the role of “Expression of Interest” models and matching mechanisms.
