The Greek government intends to prevent a new rise in unemployment, in connection with which the Employment Agency OAED plans to implement two new programs in the near future, designed for 15,000 jobs.
In particular, the first will concern 10,000 jobs for the unemployed under the age of 29 (employment for seven months in enterprises in Attica and central Macedonia).
Employees will be paid a minimum wage of € 558 from OAED, which will also pay insurance premiums, gifts and benefits.
The second program is designed for 5,000 jobs and will target the unemployed over 30 years old, residents of Western Macedonia, Central Greece, the Ionian Sea region, the Peloponnese, the North Aegean Sea and Crete.
The program will last one year, and the monthly wage subsidy and contributions will range from EUR 466 for the ordinary unemployed to EUR 699 for the long-term unemployed.
As a reminder, Sunday 23 May is the deadline for electronic applications for OAED’s new online cybersecurity professional training program in partnership with Cisco.
OAED and Cisco have jointly decided to increase the number of jobs to 3,000 after the initial 1,000 job offers were filled. To date, more than 2,500 applications have been submitted.
