POST-CHRISTMAS sales mean 80,200 new temporary jobs in Spain have been taken up, or 5% more than in January 2015, according to recruitment agency Adecco.

Perfume and cosmetics, clothing and accessories, electronics, toys, food, distribution, wholesalers, logistics and transport, bars and restaurants are the areas where most of the new employment has been created.

Sales and customer service roles are the most prolific, including publicity hostesses at events, promoters, call centre staff and shop assistants.

Around a quarter of those taken on for the Christmas campaign have had their temporary job contracts renewed to cover the festive sales – which end in late February – especially those with customer service experience and who are good at selling.

Employees with these talents are likely to be the most sought-after for the rest of the year, with jobs in customer-facing and sales roles expected to increase by between 50% and 60%.

Retail jobs increase by 50% over the Christmas, New Year, Three Kings and winter sales periods, whilst transport and logistics positions rise by 20%.

Catalunya has seen the highest number of new temporary jobs offered – 14,668 – followed by the Valencia region, with 13,562 and the Greater Madrid region with 10,750.

Combined, they make up half of all seasonal jobs in Spain, and are followed by Murcia (9,150) and Andalucía (nearly 8,000).

Other than Asturias (995 jobs), Cantabria (910), La Rioja (686), the Balearic Islands (223) and Extremadura (210), the rest of the regions expect to take on between 3,000 and 4,100 new staff apiece.

By provinces, Barcelona has taken on the most new workers – 11,500 – followed by Madrid, Valencia and Murcia at between 9,000 and 11,000.
