Youths to benefit from employment plan


THE Chamber of Commerce, together with Banco Popular, have signed an agreement to include Almeria in the PICE (Employment Integration and Training Plan), a project launched by the European Union with the goal of opening up employment opportunities for youths and helping businesses find workers.
The Chamber of Commerce is expecting to benefit 1,240 youths from Almeria, helping them improve their training and access a higher quality position.
President of the Chamber, Diego Martinez Cano, explained that youngsters chosen to participate in the programme will be able to take part in internships, visits to several companies or the support and training to pursue their own business.
Participating companies will also benefit from the scheme, receiving public bonuses for hiring youths from the programme, as well as helping improve the quality of employment.
The project will cost a total of €835,000, 80 per cent of which will be funded by the Chamber and the rest by the Banco Popular.
