ADEJE Council, in partnership with a number of the borough’s private companies, has initiated an employment project “AUGE” (the management of employment and entrepreneurship for higher-education graduates).
The project is aimed at people aged between 18-35, who have completed a third-level course, or a professional training course, but are either unemployed or in a job that doesn’t suit them, given their education and training.
Adeje Mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga said: “We need to increase the number of young people in our productive network. “Without young people, there is no future.
We have an important group of young, educated graduates, and we need to help them find appropriate work, which will guarantee the kind of professional values they seek; work which offers them professional emancipation.”
The Global Jobs Pact is a set of balanced, realistic, policy measures, which countries, with the support of regional and multilateral institutions, can adopt to ease the impact of the crisis, as well as accelerating employment recovery.
It was adopted in June 2009 by the International Labour Organisation, and calls on its member States to put decent work opportunities at the core of their crisis responses.
It addresses the social impact of the global crisis on employment and proposes job-centred policies for countries to adapt, according to their national needs.
The pact states: “The damage to employment, created by the financial and economic crisis, has caused hardship to many working women and men, families and communities, and worsened poverty.
It has threatened the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, weakened middle-classes, heightened risks to social cohesion and eroded the confidence of decision-makers.
Recovery will not be sustainable unless jobs are created and maintained. With 45 million young people entering the workforce annually, 300 million new jobs need to be created… just to keep up with the labour-force growth.”
AUGE is designed to meet the needs of our qualified young people, who know there is a with a lack of possibilities open to them to develop their capabilities, which leads many to emigrate.
The Open Space event, which will bring together graduates, qualified young people and potential employers, takes place in Costa Adeje’s Hotel Victoria this evening (Friday, 3rd May) at 5pm.
The opening address will be given by Juan Verde, President of the Fundación Advanced Leadership, and former Under-Secretary of State to President Obama.
There will be a series of round-table discussions, led by various people in the business, training and employment field, including Xiomara Méndez, creator of the job-seeking Canarian webpage, www.enbuscade.org, and Ana Gallardo, professor and mentor in the MentorDay company.
During the evening attendees will also have a chance to present themselves to company representatives in attendance, include people from Dekbera, the Spring Hotel group, Crea Solutions, and Ikea, among others. They will be there to chat and accept CVs from anyone interested in working with them.
The event is free, but you should register. And there’s more information and registration online, at: http://www.adeje.es/adejeimpulsa/agenda/9083-open-space-encuentro-de-personas-con-formacion-superior
