Registering as a jobseeker
By registering as a jobseeker, you show that you are available for work. Actiris works with you to put together a job search plan (FR/NL).
- Actiris helps you put together a job plan and suggests relevant jobs.
- In some circumstances you can apply for a subsidised job specially for the long-term unemployed.
- As a jobseeker you are eligible for all kinds of assistance (FR/NL): free training, language and vocational courses.
Depending on how long you have been in work you may be entitled to unemployment benefit. If you’ve just left school you are only entitled to benefit at the end of a qualifying period, which starts when you register as a jobseeker. This is another reason to register quickly.
See the ONEM’s (National Employment Agency) website for more information unemployment benefit (FR/NL).
How to register
You can register as a jobseeker on the Actiris website. You can also visit one of the Actiris branches in person. Be sure to take along your ID and a copy of your certificates.
