MIJAS COUNCIL has extended the deadline to register in their employment programme for the over-40s.
Laura Moreno, Councillor for Employment, explained the scheme helps the long-term unemployed back into work. She said, “After analysing the unemployment figures of the municipality and the employment plans that were already being developed, we saw the need to implement specific plans for unemployed people over 40.”
The programme will cover CV updating and active job searching and will include individual sessions and personalised attention. Councillor Moreno explained, “individualised attention is one of the highlights of this programme which can take a total of 10 unemployed people from Mijas, where they will be able to gain tools for an actively looking for employment and improving their confidence in job interviews.”
Mr Moreno said the council wants to “make a special appeal to unemployed women over 40 to encourage them to come by the employment agencies where we can advise and inform them of all the courses and workshops at their disposal.”
