Third Annual Job Fair in Part of Spain where Unemployment is High

The mayor opened the fair Credit: San Roque council

FACED with the uncertainty of workers abilities to cross from Spain to Gibraltar by the end of this year due to Brexit, local councils, employers and the Junta de Andalucia presented the III Job Fair in San Roque

Hosted by mayor of San Roque Juan Carlos Ruiz Boix, the opening ceremony was attended by members of the Junta as well as representatives of the councils of San Roque, La Linea de la Concepcion, Castellar and Tarifa.

In his speech the mayor asked that all administrations within Spain up to Government level take action to ensure that employment in the area covered by the Campo de Gibraltar should not only be protected especially in this uncertain time, but actions should be taken to endeavour to create more jobs in the area.

He confirmed that San Roque was a hub of activity with a number of new tourist constructions being undertaken which would provide both immediate and long term work.

Visitors to the fair were able to see for themselves the number of jobs that were available in the area and to have the opportunity to not only leave their CVs with potential employers but to discuss work opportunities generally, to network with others and to attend informative workshops which could help their search for work.
