Spain — Government publishes list of labour shortages

20 July 2010

The latest catalogue of Labour Shortages by sector and by region (Catalogo de Ocupaciones de Dificil Cobertura) published by the public employment service (Sepe, previously known as Inem), reveals that despite the high unemployment levels of nearly 20%, there are enormous shortages in the labour market, which are difficult to fill.

Six Spanish regions and Spain's Moroccan city of Melilla need General Medical Practitioners from outside their region because they cannot find appropriate personnel in their region.

In the Murcia region, there is a huge shortage of orthopaedic surgeons, paediatric surgeons and psychologists.

The Barcelona region has an acute shortage of family doctors and in Galicia primary school teachers are impossible to come by.

In the Basque Country region there is a serious shortage of machine operators, metal polishers and boilermakers.

In Asturias there is a lack of physicians, pharmacists and judo and aerobics teachers.
