Spain – Employment agencies outperforming public sector

28 June 2013

Temporary employment agencies have outperformed the public sector in Q1 2013, reporting a total of 446,059 new job placements. Temporary jobs equated to 14.8% of total employment between January and March 2013. During the same, period public sector employment produced 67,390 new jobs.

In Seville, temporary placements were nearly three times greater for young people, than permanent jobs. In the Canary Islands, 17 times more temporary workers were employed than permanent. Ten times as many temporary workers found employment in Cantabria. Young people have benefitted most from the surge in temporary job opportunities. 

Asempleo, Spain’s largest association of private employment agencies, has published its Q1 2013 employment report, revealing that total unemployment rose during the first three months of 2013, continuing the trend of the previous two quarters. Asempleo’s research shows that regions with higher levels of temporary employment are generally those with the lowest unemployment rates. 

Public sector unemployment sits at nearly double the level of the private sector, 8.3% and 4.8% respectively.
