EuRA is an amazing global mobility and relocation organization. It helps thousands of professionals improve their business skills every year. It also helps them be updated with what’s new and important in the industry.
They want to keep improving their company and keep helping you become the best version of your professional self. That’s why they’ll soon be presenting their brand new EuRA Sustainability program.
Nowadays, sustainability knowledge is a very impressive characteristic to add to your resume. So, if you’re one of those workers that wants to improve and work for the best companies ever, you can’t miss this webinar.
European Relocation Association (EuRA) is a non-profit organization for global mobility and relocation matters. They share relocation services and give advice, information and training for their members.
So everyone can get the services they need, or they can keep learning in order to grow in the industry. Because no matter how many years of experience we have, we never stop learning.
They know how much relocation can change a person’s life; that’s why they share relocation services to those who need it. So they help ease the transition for both the relocated employee and the company.
In order to keep maintaining a good organization and not lose focus of their missions, they have a council. The council is made of nine people, plus one President and one Vice-president that keeps everything in order.
This is called The Executive Group. The president and vice-president keep their positions for one year. But if everything goes well the council could invite them to maintain their jobs for a second year.
And the members of the council keep their council duties for two years “on a voluntary basis”. “Each council member represents their local region, ensuring any national issues are addressed on a European level”.
This shows how much they care about keeping their members happy and the relocation industry well organized in all regions.
If you really like them, you can become a member. There are different memberships, so you can choose one depending on your business profile. First, there’s the Full Membership for “service providers and relocation management companies who have been trading for more than two years”.
Then, there’s the Associate Membership for service providers and relocation management companies that have been working in these for less than two years.
Once you’ve surpassed the two years, you can upgrade to a Full Membership. There’s also a Supplier Membership. This is for companies “whose commercial activities are linked to and used by relocation service providers”.
Something great about this membership type is that supplier members can be from anywhere in the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re not from Europe.
Don’t forget that being a member comes with high responsibilities, but also great benefits for you! Some benefit examples are being on their website, which is great for marketing and getting more recognition. As well as an amazing discount for their incredible MIM Training programmes.
