In addition, the network plays an important role in European cross-border regions. They provide information that is especially relevant to cross-border regions and facilitate job placements that benefit workers as much as employers.

The European Job Mobility Portal

The European Job Mobility Portal provides a number of services to jobseekers. First of all, the network lists vacancies available across the participating 31 countries. Secondly, employers can advertise open positions. In addition, the portal includes information about skills and learning opportunities. Finally, jobseekers can find information about living and working in participating countries. Consequently, the portal is a "one-stop-shop" for assistance and information.

Partners in EURES

Public employment services actively collaborate at European level to improve their services. They therefore assist the network to facilitate mobility across national borders. As a result, they are key contributors to this European Job Mobility Portal.

The purpose of the network is to provide information, advice and recruitment/placement (job-matching) services. This is for the benefit of workers and employers as well as citizens who wish to benefit from the free movement of persons.

EURES has a human network of more than 850 advisers. They are in daily contact with jobseekers and employers across Europe.

Due to the joint resources of member and partner organisations the EURES network to offer high quality services for both workers and employers.

UK insurer Prudential may shift funds from its asset management business to Dublin or Luxembourg. The company is keen to maintain access to the European Union's single market.

The UK’s decision to leave the EU negatively impacted Prudential’s share price. However, chief executive Mike Wells is confident that the company can weather the UK's exit from the single market. Wells said Brexit will not have a material impact on the company. Prudential is concentrating growth efforts on Asia, and as a result, around a third of the insurer’s operating profit come from the Asian market.

"Asia has been and will continue to be the growth engine of this group," said Wells.

Prudential’s Asian growth offsets Brexit uncertainty

Prudential’s fund management division M&G may seek to increase the number of its funds in Dublin and Luxembourg. Asset managers need an EU base to sell investment funds to European retail investors. It is not yet known if this regulation will remain in place once the UK has exited the EU. Therefore, the company has to prepare for the future, M&G chief executive Anne Richards told reporters.

"What we are trying to do is... give ourselves options so we are in a position to react and adapt,” she said.

M&G said it was looking at expanding its operations in Dublin shortly after the Brexit result.

The company reported six percent rise in first-half operating profit. This was led by Asian growth. Growth in Asia has helped to offset lower profit from M&G. In addition, Prudential recently made a purchase in Zambia. The group may look to expand in the African market and also in the United States.
