French term or phrase: insere
this term is the noun, for a person who is joining the work force. I am considering the word recruit, but am not 100% sure this is the correct meaning. The sentence (although I think it will be of little help) is;
" definition des profils linguistiques et du nombre d'inseres en fonction des contraintes de la programmation". The text is about new interpreters working for the EU. Thanks

What a great word, "inséré" ! I think 'recruit' has two drawbacks: (1) it is too military and (2) it does not convey the meaning that this person has been "given a chance", since s/he is part of an organised programme to fight unemployment. My suggestion, "probationer," is pretty hopeless, but it might set your mind off on another track. Think "insertion" (FR); what are the equivalents for that? How about "trainee", or "sponsored trainee"?
