Benidorm City Council is going to hire 28 unemployed people for 12 months through the Empuju and Explus programs, "thus covering all age groups", as pointed out by the Councilor for Employment and Local Development, Mónica Gómez. As reported by the mayor, "the City Council has already started all the procedures to carry out these contracts, which will reach 13 people under 30 years of age and 15 over that age." In both programs, the occupations that are requested are linked to customer service and building maintenance.
For the development of the programs, with which the aim is to "improve the employability of people who lack a job", the City Council will have the financial support of LABORA, which will contribute 227,880 euros to Explus and 194,487.59 euros to Empuju. These resources come from the European Social Fund, within the framework of the 2014-2020 Operational Program of the Valencian Community
The global contribution of the City Council, for its part, will amount to 241,283.09 euros.
Gómez has detailed that through the Explus program, 7 unemployed people over 30 years of age will be hired for one year as information assistants – code 44121011; as well as 8 building maintainers -code 71911012-.
About the Empuju 2022 program, to which the City Council allocates 113,635.84 euros, the intention is to hire unemployed young people under 30 years of age who are registered in the National Youth Guarantee System for 12 months. In this case, 7 young people will be hired to perform functions as employees in the customer service area -code 44111018-, and another six who will serve as building maintainers -code 71911012-.
The person in charge of Employment and Local Development has informed that "people interested in participating in the Explus or Empuju selection process must be registered in the aforementioned occupations and be registered in the Espai Labora de Benidorm as unemployed". In the coming days, Espai Labora de Benidorm will survey unemployed people registered in the jobs for both programs. Subsequently, this body will send a list to Benidorm City Council with the names of the people who will participate in the selection process.
Gómez has pointed out that "even though unemployment statistics indicate that the percentage of unemployed people in Benidorm is the lowest for more than a decade, from the City Council we continue with active employment policies, convinced that the promotion of employment is the best tool to help families in Benidorm”. For this reason, she has specified, "once again we reissue these programs and allocate the necessary municipal resources for it."
