EU Blue Card Network facilitates an environment that enables European recruiters to connect with non-EU nationals and offer them employment and residence in the European Union on the EU Blue Card.
If you have higher education qualifications, you are a non-EU national, and it is your ambition to work and live Europe, we encourage you to sign up!
Create your Profile
Your online profile allows you to enter your personal details, educational background and job experience. All data fields are optional; you decide what you want to share. We encourage candidates to complete their profile as this significantly increases their visibility to recruiters. As attachments to your online profile, you may add your curriculum vitae (CV) and up to five educational achievements.
Jobs are not advertised in the Network. Candidates have the role of completing and maintaining their online profile. Recruiters browse and search for candidates that match their job requirements. When the right candidate is found, the recruiter connects and starts an interview. The interview is aimed to lead to a job contract. Good to know: EU Blue Card Network does not benefit from a successful match; it serves as a facilitator only.
Getting the card
Once the interview process has been completed and both parties agree on the employment terms, the employer issues a job contract or binding offer. This contract or offer is required to request the EU Blue Card.
The EU Blue Card may be requested with the immigration authorities in the country where the work and residence will take place, or papers can be sent to your local consulate. The Blue Card procedure is 'fast-track', when the documents are correct the card should be issued within three months.
Safe and Secure
EU Blue Card network takes security very seriously. Your personal information is stored on a secure server that communicates only via an encrypted Internet connection (SSL), preventing eavesdropping. Only registered recruiters have access to your profile. Recruiters are not automatically admitted to the Network, but have to go through a verification process to ensure their integrity.
