The Man­power Or­ga­ni­za­tion’s (OAED) of­fer to sub­si­dize 2,500 em­ploy­ment po­si­tions was snapped up by pri­vate sec­tor en­ter­prises in just 45 min­utes yes­ter­day, il­lus­trat­ing com­pa­nies’ will­ing­ness to re­cruit work­ers if they can af­ford them.

This process formed part of an ex­ist­ing pro­gram aimed at the re­cruit­ment of 10,000 job­less peo­ple aged be­tween 30 and 66, while a new pro­gram for the sub­si­dized em­ploy­ment of 6,000 un­em­ployed aged 18 or over will also be­gin in the next few days.

The state sub­sidy for ev­ery day of em­ploy­ment amounts to 18 euros, while so­cial se­cu­rity con­tri­bu­tions are cov­ered for 25 days per month. The to­tal du­ra­tion of the sub­sidy pro­gram is 12 months and re­quires the hir­ing of job­less peo­ple with valid un­em­ploy­ment doc­u­ments who have filled in the ap­pro­pri­ate form.
