The Spanish government has triggered employment by offering 100,000 civil service jobs.
The Spanish government has announced what it says is “The largest ever offer of public employment.” This time, the increase will be mainly financed by European stimulus aid from which Spain benefits to the tune of 140 billion euros.
Over the past few years, except for 2020, the positions offered have been steadily growing. More than 28,000 in 2019; The following year, 2020, there was that slight fall, although it remained above 28,000 positions; and in 2021, the data grew again strongly, reaching 30,500 places, adding those for the General State Administration (AGE) and those for the State Security Forces and Bodies and the Armed Forces.
This time though, it is a new record for employment, as 100,000 jobs are being offered for civil servants.
The Spanish Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, stopped at one point during the presentation of the General State Budgets (PGE) for 2022, saying: ” In three years of Pedro Sánchez’s government, the public employment offer has been 73% higher than that of the six periods of office of Mariano Rajoy, this is a government that is committed to quality public services, the Welfare State, employment and people.”

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
