The Pôle Emploi is to be rebranded as France Travail

France’s government-run job centres, currently known as the Pôle Emploi, are to be given a refresh with a new name as well as some updated measures to better support jobseekers in their quests for employment.  

As of 1st January, the Pôle Emploi job centres will no longer exist – in name. They are to be replaced with a more updated version of their former selves, boasting a new brand and renewed objectives.  

They will soon be called France Travail, but will do many of the same things that its predecessor did albeit with some additional measures to assist in helping those actively looking for work, recipients of the active solidarity income (RSA), young people registered with a local mission and disabled workers who are looking for support. 

“This new entity is the result of a desire for cooperation between the various actors in employment, training and integration,” said a representative for the public employment operator. 


Some of the changes going into effect on 1st January include personalised support referrals for those registered, automatic registration of job seekers by 2025, more support for the disabled and the creation of extra municipal childcare centres by 2026 to help recent parents ease back into the workplace.  


Some of the aspects that will remain as before include the conditions for the payment of unemployment benefits, access to the website for updates, job offers, workshop alerts, training sessions and the like.  

The new website is expected to be up and running by February, at which point all users will be directed here.
