Adeje council and the Canarian employment service launch two projects
Up to 130 people will benefit from the two schemes
The Adeje council’s department of economic development and
employment politics, under councillor Raquel Rodríguez Alonso, are rolling out
two projects which will generate jobs locally, in conjunction with the Canarian
employment service – the SCE. The two schemes will benefit up to 130
people in Adeje over a nine-month period.
According to the agreement established between the SCE and
FECAM, the Canarian Federation of Municipalities, dealing with works locally
that also encourage reinsertion into the labour force for the 2020-21
period, the go-ahead is given for projects that benefit the Canarian
community and, in parallel, work to reduce unemployment in the
archipelago. Adeje is part of this agreement, which is co-funded by the
Canarian Integration Plan.
The first scheme (translated), ‘Integrated improvements to Adeje
and Covid-19 prevention’, will see 70 individuals, who have been seeking work,
taken on for a nine-month period, where they will be trained and then given
direct employment. Some will be working on the dissemination of information on
Covid-19, others working in the area of public disinfection and sanitation of
communal areas. The project is co-funded by the council and the SCE.
The second initiative, for 57 job-seekers, will be under the
NOE-COVID (New Opportunities in Employment) banner, and see those taken on to
carry out “general work designed to improve the tourism areas”. It
will be based in tourist zones and also, it is hoped, be of benefit in the
The initiative is thanks to the agreement between the SCE, the
Adeje council, and is co-financed by the European Social Fund which also
includes a line of economic assistance to encourage economic activity in the face
of the pandemic.
