A new job placement scheme has just been signed between the Adeje council (department of local economic development) and the ‘Mensajeros por la Paz’ which will see an investment of over €80,000 to help young people (under 30) seeking their first job and those on the verge of social exclusion.
One of the slightly different aspects of this jobs scheme is that as well as assisting those who might not have finished formal education there will be assistance designed to help those who have completed superior vocational/third level training but have been unable to find that all-important first job, and will aid in job-placement with relevant companies.
“We have currently 2,800 people registered as unemployed in Adeje, many of those who haven’t finished their education and are without any certification, and at risk of social exclusion, and a large percentage of those are under 30 years of age”, commented councillor Manuel Luis Méndez Martin. “We are constantly working to help in socio-employment orientation and giving vocational training opportunities to help more people integrate into the labour market”. He also pointed out the importance of staying in employment and the challenges of finding the best possible match using personalised profiles of those seeking employment.
