The Council welcomes the new workers

WITH a total budget of €5 million for 2019, the Mijas Council has increased the number of staff employed at basic wage for six months from 113 to 235 and is looking to top 300 before the end of the year.
Those being employed are mainly quite young but the idea is to give them some work experience at a stepping stone to full time employment in due course.
Whilst the jobs themselves are fairly basic, they include cleaning, working on beaches, gardens, and libraries as well as overseeing the opening and closing of schools.
The council believes that this type of opportunity not only benefits the community as a whole but gives those involved a new sense of worth and expects them to act in a professional and committed manner at all times.
