Italy — Minister is considering the French model

18 November 2009

Maurizio Sacconi, Minister for Labour, Health and Social Affairs, is currently considering spending 40 million Euro on incentives for temporary and permanent staffing agencies to find jobs for the unemployed.

This follows the decision by the French government earlier this year to contract staffing agencies in order to find jobs for 320,000 job seekers in France and therefore lighten the burden on the French government's job office 'Pole Emploi'.

Ministry for Labour consultant Michele Tiraboschi, told press agency DIRE "the premium would be 1,200 Euro for finding a permanent position or a contract for at least two years and 800 Euro for a temporary contract of up to two years."

"If you consider an average of 1,000 Euro per job found, this could create 40,000 new jobs in 2010. We have to motivate staffing agencies to find jobs for the unemployed and the incentive payment should be quite attractive for them."
