TWO employment plans developed by the Junta de Andalucia regional government are set to create some much-needed employment in Velez-Malaga.
Velez-Malaga is anticipating funding from the Junta of around €1.4 million for EmpleoJoven (Employment Youth Plan), and around another €930,000 for the contracts included in Empleo30+ (Employment Plan 30+).
These investments are expected to create 330 new jobs, 237 under EmpleoJoven and 93 as a result of Empleo30+.
Additionally the town council itself has decided to contribute around €2 million to the creation of employment in the community, meaning that overall more than €4 million this year is going towards the stimulation of new employment in Velez-Malaga.
Velez-Malaga Employment councillor Jose Sanchez Maldonado has underlined the importance of the two employment plans for the municipality.
He has encouraged all young people, businesses and self-employed people to take advantage of these promising opportunities.
EmpleoJoven and Empleo 30+ have had good results in the past in Andalucia, and Sanchez Maldonado and other members of the council and Velez-Malaga community are optimistic that these good results could be repeated in 2016.
