Spain – Increased interest in summer jobs

15 August 2012

According to Begoña Ramos of Adecco quoted in the La Opiniónn de Zamora the company is seeing a surge of older workers interested in taking summer jobs. To paraphrase Ramos there is a new type of temporary job applicant who is looking for something more long term, not just students who often leave after the school year begins. However the firm is seeing a fall in firms looking for casual workers with some companies ceasing to cover holidays or look for cover from their existing workforces.

As the number job seekers continues to grow, firms are also looking for temporary worker with experienced something that was not previously were not required. The summer jobs are usually associated with split shifts (often a schedule that has nothing to do with traditional office hours) and working hours coincide with weekends. Javier Fernandez, who owns a bar in Zamora says we are looking for people who are willing to work flexible hours. "This seems logical," says Fernandez, "but there are people who think their workday will end at eight and it will not work on Sundays or holidays."
