Welcome to Eastern Europeans - Recruitment & Jobs

Whether you are a UK or European employer looking for staff or a jobseeker from one of the central and eastern european countries to join the EU in 2004 and 2007 and looking for work in the UK, Western Europe or even further afield, we may be able to assist you.

Eastern Europeans has been promoting people from Eastern Europe in the UK in particular, but open to all international employers - especially from Ireland and Switzerland - via our former online community platform since 2006. We also started a recruitment service in late 2007 after getting a lot of employer requests to set this up rather than just have a jobsite, and on average get queries from several thousand candidates(pre current turmoil) and several hundred employers each year. We may reintroduce(since 2007) a separate jobsite mid to late 2019 so those employers who prefer that option over a recruitment service can advertise on there.

While things have changed considerably in the international job market across Europe and the UK in particular in the post financial crisis(2014) to pre-Brexit period(2019) and may change further in the post-Brexit period, we will do our best to continue to service any demand.
This website has been split off in 2018 from our old .CO.UK website to prepare for 2019 political changes and appeal to a wider range of employers beyond our traditional 90% UK employer base. if you are one of our previous employer clients or our Eastern European candidates, we advise you to use this website to deal with us
