IN order to work in the public sector in Spain, it is necessary to undertake and pass examinations known as las oposiciones and this Sunday January 19, 166,400 people will sit the examination competing for just 4,055 jobs in the post office (Correos).

With a ratio of 41 people for each job, the chances of succeeding are low but having reduced the work force by 15,000 over the past several years and with 30 per cent of its staff on temporary contracts, Correos is now attempting to fill the gap.
