They will serve for a year in different municipal departments
Benidorm City Council today has incorporated 34 young graduates under 30 years of age, hired through a grant from European funds and who will serve in various municipal departments for a year. These 34 people join the 15 that joined last week within the EMCUJU program of 'Avalem Joves +' plan. A plan co-financed by the European Union through the Operational Program of the European Social Fund (ESF) of the Valencian Community 2014-2020, and which also has a program for hiring unskilled youth (EMPUJU). For the development of both initiatives the City Council has received more than 1.9 million euros of European funds.
The mayor, Toni Pérez, welcomed the new workers, who have a degree in Vocational Training, Diploma, University Degree and who have gone to departments such as Tourism, Employment, Design, Sports, Historical Heritage, Beaches, Environment , Intervention, Commerce or Protocol. Pérez invited these young people to take advantage of this opportunity and the year they have ahead to deploy their knowledge, put them at the service of citizenship and public management, and to acquire professional and work experience.
For the EMCUJU the City Council has received a grant of 819,211.56 euros; and 1,099,287.84 for the EMPUJU, which will also be contracted for twelve months with around 70 other young people who will join at the end of the month and who will be responsible for cleaning the natural environment or for monitoring facilities, among others. The City Council, meanwhile, will have to provide in two years a total of 152,292.56 euros to co-finance the contracts for work or service of the latter.
The mayor acknowledged "the great work that the Department of Employment has done with its councilor, Maria Jesus Pinto, at the head." A work that "has allowed Benidorm to get two of the largest subsidies in the Valencian Community" and, consequently, "to be one of the cities that offers more and better opportunities to their young people in terms of employment through these programs" . Likewise, he highlighted the collaboration between the Employment and Personnel departments to "detect which professional opportunities we can offer our youth from the City Council and based on them draw the job profiles that have been incorporated into the programs."
