Randstad has been granted authorisation by the Government’s job centres (SEPE) to operate as an employment and outplacement agency, the firm said yesterday.
This will allow the staffing firm to work with public employment services in Spain, helping unemployed people with their job search and improve their employability.
Randstad is one of the first staffing firms to be given this status in Spain, following a project which was partly initiated by the Basque public employment service. ManpowerGroup already became the first staffing group in Spain to work side-by-side with job centres in order to find jobs for the unemployed in September last year.
In other European countries, including France and Belgium, Randstad has been collaborating with public services to act as an intermediary and outplacement agency. In Spain, however, this is a relative novel development.
The recent labour reforms, introduced earlier this year, make the Spanish labour market more flexible and increases recruitment firms’ opportunities in the jobs market.
