Training for Mobile Employees in the RO-BG Cross Border Area

The focus of this handbook is the mobile worker in the culinary sector in the cross-border region Romania - Bulgaria. The border territories of Romania and Bulgaria have many similarities, but they differ in their specifics, which everyone who wants to work on the other side of the border must know and be prepared to comply with them. How the employees in both countries are prepared for this challenge - to change not only their work place but also the country where they live; to comply with other legislation; to adjust to other culture and people-psychology - depends on the preliminary information and qualification they have. This handbook is entirely practical and is aimed at anyone who wants to start work in the Romania - Bulgaria Cross-Border Region. Developed under Action 9 under the project "Integrated Solutions for Employment in Culinary Arts and the Restaurant Sector for a Qualified and Inclusive Bulgarian-Romanian Cross-Border Region", co-funded by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund under the Interreg VA Romania- Bulgaria.
The project is implemented by the Dobrudja Agrarian and Business School Association (DABU), Dobrich, Bulgaria in partnership with "Choose Your Occupation" Association - Center for Vocational Training, Constanta - Romania. The handbook provides useful information on the steps that jobseekers should follow when accepting the challenge of changing their place and country and starting their working career on the other side of the border. It draws attention to the useful qualities needed by potential mobile workers in the tourism industry and in particular in the culinary sector, what challenges can be encountered, what skills are needed and what problems shall be overcome. The product is intended not only for Bulgarian and Romanian citizens but also for any jobseeker in the European Union who accepts Bulgaria and Romania as an attractive place to develop and build their future. Labor mobility is a target activity in the initiatives to achieve the EU's main priorities in a strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth "Europe 2020".
