Nearly 300 workers from the Costa Daurada participated this Monday in the second edition of Job Dating in Tarragona to fill jobs in the Pyrenees during the winter season.
The objective of the day is for companies in the hospitality and tourism sector of Val d'Aran, Pallars Sobirà and Alta Ribagorça to hold a first meeting with people interested in filling the different vacancies.
In total, the ten participating establishments have offered 153 contracts ranging from waiters to waiters, chefs or receptionists, among others.
The SOC and the Tarragona City Council celebrate that the initiative offers continuity to workers who finish the season on the coast.
The director of the Territorial Services of the Department of Business and Labor in Tarragona, Jordi Fortuny, has applauded the fact that a second edition of Job Dating has been organized in the city, since it allows "workers in the tourism and restaurant sector to have finished the season on the Costa Daurada, find work in the Pyrenees, where it will start soon.
Along the same lines, several of the businessmen who gathered at the Tarragona Impulsa headquarters this Monday showed themselves. "It is a very important synergy that should not be lost," said the head of human resources at the Boí Taüll Resort company, Adrià Agramunt, who believes that in this way "the talent that is left" without work on the coast is taken advantage of. and moves to the Pyrenees where there are job opportunities.
In the case of Boí Taüll Resort, the company offers a contract for nine months and accommodation. And the lack of housing was one of the problems of the previous edition. "Last year we found that many people wanted to come, but could not find accommodation," lamented Lourdes López, one of the businesswomen of the Val d'Aran Hospitality Guild. For this reason, this year, the vast majority of establishments participating in the event have included accommodation in their job offers.
Finally, the president of the Val d'Aran Hospitality Guild, Carles Sigüenza, explained that only in Val d'Aran more than half a thousand jobs are offered during the winter season. "The suitability of doing it in Tarragona is due to the seasonality that the Costa Daurada also has," explained Sigüenza, who added that "when the season ends here is when workers are needed there."
Last year, 36% of the half a thousand people registered for the Job Dating event ended up formalizing a contract with one of the participating companies.
