Adeje council and the Canarian employment service launch two projects

Up to 130 people will benefit from the two schemes

2 march 2021
The Adeje council’s department of economic development and employment politics, under councillor Raquel Rodríguez Alonso, are rolling out two projects which will generate jobs locally, in conjunction with the Canarian employment service - the SCE.  The two schemes will benefit up to 130 people in Adeje over a nine-month period.
According to the agreement established between the SCE and FECAM, the Canarian Federation of Municipalities, dealing with works locally that also encourage reinsertion into the labour force for the 2020-21 period,  the go-ahead is given for projects that benefit the Canarian community and, in parallel, work to reduce unemployment in the archipelago.  Adeje is part of this agreement, which is co-funded by the Canarian Integration Plan.
The first scheme (translated), ‘Integrated improvements to Adeje and Covid-19 prevention’, will see 70 individuals, who have been seeking work, taken on for a nine-month period, where they will be trained and then given direct employment. Some will be working on the dissemination of information on Covid-19, others working in the area of public disinfection and sanitation of communal areas. The project is co-funded by the council and the SCE.
The second initiative, for 57 job-seekers, will be under the NOE-COVID (New Opportunities in Employment) banner, and see those taken on to carry out “general work designed to  improve the tourism areas”.  It will be based in tourist zones and also, it is hoped, be of benefit in the service sector.  
The initiative is thanks to the agreement between the SCE, the Adeje council, and is co-financed by the European Social Fund which also includes a line of economic assistance to encourage economic activity in the face of the pandemic.
