SOME 50 people out of work in Cuevas del Almanzora have this year benefitted from employment plans.
The plans are backed by the Junta de Andalucia through the European Social Fund, with the collaboration of the local council, and this week Cuevas Mayor Antonio Fernandez Liria and Economic Development councillor Maria Isabel Alarcon presented diplomas to 26 of the unemployed who have been carrying out work with the local authority.
The plans allowed for contracting people not in employment for various jobs for a minimum of six months with a total investment of €414,500.
This year there were 18 jobless aged 18 to 29 who were taken on to work in tourism IT, as street cleaners, cleaning staff, plumbers, painters and decorators, geriatric care assistants and electricians.
In the programme for 30 to 44 year olds, there were 12 people employed as electricians, plumbers, cleaners, street cleaners or rural tourism agents.
In the over 45 age group, 18 unemployed were contracted as painters and decorators, carpenters, cleaning staff, plumbers, street cleaners and IT staff.
