Employment services

The search for employment starts with the registration as job-seeker and with an active search. Several services help people in search of employment or training.

Registration as job-seeker

For all people in Brussels, the registration as job-seeker is done with Actiris, the Brussels Regional Office of Employment.

The registration as a job-seeker allows:

  • to benefit from help in search of employment on behalf of Actiris
  • to reach formations
  • to take advantage of reductions to follow studies or formation
  • to benefit from helps in employment and from Social Security
