SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Jan 13 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife, in the hands of the Canarian Federation of Municipalities (Fecam), has presented this Thursday the second employment plan of the corporation, endowed with 10.5 million euros and which will create 662 jobs.
The details have been exposed at a press conference by the president of the Cabildo, Pedro Martín; the president of Fecam, Mari Brito, and the insular counselor for Employment, Socioeconomic Development and Foreign Action, Carmen Luz Baso, who have highlighted the new criterion of “co-governance” put in place by the island government team since the Legislature began .
This second edition is aimed at meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, in the case of improving social welfare and the environment, solid waste management or the sustainable development of municipalities.
The contracts will now last between 6 and 12 months, with an average of 7.8 months, and more than 61% will correspond to qualified people – university studies and Vocational Training – who do not have work experience.
In addition, a part of the funds, just over 800,000 euros, is reserved for training in equality, labor rights and the 2030 Agenda.
The distribution of the funds, which are already entered into the municipalities’ accounts so that jobs can start shortly, have been linear and also taking into account the number of unemployed.
Pedro Martín has taken advantage of his appearance before journalists to take stock of the aid provided by the Cabildo since 2020 and stressed that employment plans had never been made with all municipalities – the investment is 20.6 million – nor 9 million had been delivered in social assistance.
Thus, it has valued that the distribution of funds is now done “equitably” and together with the municipalities and not as it was done in the past, at the discretion of the government team of the Cabildo.
Martín has also detailed that 10 million have been allocated in aid to SMEs and the self-employed that have reached 963 companies and have protected 2,439 jobs and the second municipal cooperation plan 2022-25 has been approved, which goes from 48 to 60 million.
Mari Brito has valued this line of work of collaboration with the municipalities opened by the Cabildo because it allows to “homogenize” the distribution of resources, and in the specific case of this second employment plan, she has indicated that it is an “opportunity” to give steps in the field of sustainable development goals in municipalities.
