Mercadona Seeks More Than 360 New Employees For September

The return to ‘normality’ in September also comes hand in hand with important job offers in various sectors . One of them, that of supermarkets and large distribution, one of the few that has grown steadily despite the pandemic and inflation.

There, Mercadona has established itself as one of the benchmarks both in presence and in hiring and the conditions it offers its employees, which has even improved recently.

Currently, Mercadona is looking for 367 new jobs to work in its stores and logistics centers, with salaries that average around 1,400 euros.

How to join the Mercadona employment exchange
Currently Mercadona has open calls looking for supermarket staff (salesperson and cashiers) and warehouse waiters and waitresses. Some of them are temporary even for the summer campaign, while the vast majority are permanent contracts.

To apply for one of the vacancies you have to visit their website in the employment section, which we leave linked here .

There, the Valencian firm opens its list of job offers to the general public (it can be filtered by type of working day, place of work, date of publication…), but when registering for them, all the suitors who do not are registered must do so in order to submit their candidacy.

First of all, we will have to fill in your personal data. This includes name, surnames, DNI , contact address, telephone or nationality, among others.

Once our CV has been uploaded (which can also be done by importing data from Linkedin), and the job offer we want to apply for has been chosen, it is time for the questionnaire and the specific questions about the offer. In these sections, it will be necessary to respond to aspects of interest to companies and that may vary depending on the job offer (availability of geographical mobility, driving license…).

Conditions and salaries from 1,400 euros in Mercadona
Mercadona makes a commitment to having most of its staff with a permanent contract and a few months ago it announced a rise of more than 6% in the salary of its employees. Mercadona publishes the salaries of its workers on its own website, so it is not a great mystery to know what conditions and salaries you can aspire to.

As detailed on its website, Mercadona workers have the following net salary based on their seniority:

-With a seniority of less than one year: 1,425 euros gross per month: 1,242 net

-With a seniority of two years: 1,565 euros net per month.

-With an age of three years: 1,738 euros net per month.

-With a seniority of more than four years: 1,929 euros net per month.

But the salary is only part of the Mercadona agreement. Added to this is its leave policy, which can be extended up to 12 years for child care . The job in question is kept for one year, but during the rest of the period a return to the company is ensured.

To care for dependent people, the leave also goes to 5 years, as in the case of victims of gender violence, which have a period of 18 months.

Another of the characteristics that have made Mercadona a reference is its bonus policy . The company has been sharing profits with its workers for 20 years, to whom it pays 3 extra payments in addition to this dividend.

It also stands out for paying 255 euros a month to managers who speak foreign languages ​​and, above all, for implementing a revolution in the sector a year ago: the guaranteed two-day rest.

Experts From Around The World Will Analyze In Madrid

The 31st edition of the World Buiatrics Congress (WBC)] will be held at the Ifema Municipal Conference Center in Madrid from September 4 to 8 and will bring together the world’s leading ruminant veterinary specialists.

The National Association of Specialists in Bovine Medicine of Spain (Anembe), which brings together 1,400 expert veterinarians in cattle, is in charge of its organization by delegation of the World Association of Buiatrics (WAB), made up of 53 professional associations from all over the world. world, with more than 50,000 associates who carry out their activity in the field of veterinary specializing in production ruminants.

Throughout the more than 1,000 interventions, topics related to the work of ruminant veterinarians will be discussed and the latest news and scientific research at an international level will be announced.

For this reason, in addition to a complete scientific program with twenty-five topics on different veterinary specialties for cattle, sheep, camelids and alpacas, and the best speakers of the moment on each of the main topics, round tables have been organized for each day with the four best oral presentations and with the two main speakers, where you can interact with them on the most relevant aspects of each of their presentations.

Veterinary and human health
At the end of each scientific day, the section called ‘Vip Presentation’ will be held, open to society in general, which can be attended by any person with prior registration.

It will address current issues related to the work of the farm veterinarian, such as the importance of their work for the prevention of diseases in human health, the reduction of methane emissions through productive efficiency, the importance of ruminants in the face of rural depopulation and the cleaning of the mountains to avoid the forest fires that we are suffering.

In this sense, the member of the organizing committee of the Congress, Marco Sánchez-Moreiro, official veterinarian and medical health inspector, stresses that society’s perception of buiatrists is, today, “partial and reductionist.

The population of a pie ignores –alert– that human health depends on the good condition of animalsand that, when we check cows for tuberculosis or control the pasteurization of milk in industries and drug residues in the food chain, we are carrying out prevention for people, fighting against zoonosis, that word so well known since the pandemic of the covid-19. “The control of welfare on the farm, in transport and in the slaughterhouse, now reinforced with video surveillance cameras, is key to animal health, but also to public health,” he says.

On sustainable production, population fixation in rural areas and the work of livestock in the face of fires, Sánchez adds that ” both sides of the balance should be assessed before talking about sustainability or pollution, putting the rancher as the bad guy the movie”.

In accordance with these ideas, the veterinarian and partner of Anembe, Pablo González, who carries out his professional activity in the province of Ourense, one of the most affected by forest fires, corroborates that “these years of pandemic, in which the sector has not stopped, they have been a crucial moment to show the real data in terms of CO2 emissions and it has been shown that the pollution represented by livestock farming is well below that of other much more polluting industrial activities”.

González, very sensitive to fires and aware of the role of livestock against them, warns that “livestock farms perform a fundamental task in clearing scrub, maintaining high mountain pastures and rotating pastures. They contribute drastically against fires in some areas where livestock activity is greater”.

In addition, there will be the presence of such media characters as the American veterinarian Dr. Jan Pol, protagonist of the number 1 series broadcast by National Geographic Wild, The Incredible Dr. Pol; with Odile Rodríguez, biologist and science communicator, daughter of the naturalist Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente (creator of the legendary series El Hombre y la Tierra) or with the philosopher and writer Fernando Savater.

Acknowledgments
During the Congress, a series of prizes will be awarded, among which the Ruminant Welfare Achievement Award stands out, endowed with 10,000 euros, with which the best work in this area will be recognized. Likewise, another series of prizes and scholarships will be awarded to young veterinarians and veterinary students, with an endowment of 23,300 euros.

Extremadura Breaks Records In The Creation Of Tourism Jobs

The general director of Tourism of the Junta de Extremadura, Francisco Martín, has highlighted that the employment generated in the month of July is the best data in absolute numbers of the last 30 years.

20,405 employed workers and 7,981 self-employed are the employment data for this month of July, which increases employment by 8.27% compared to July 2021 and 4.12% compared to 2019, the best year in the different tourism indicators . With respect to the accumulated employment of the previous year in the first semester, 28,386 jobs have been created, a growth of 16.28%

According to Francisco Martín, these data confirm the forecasts that the Junta de Extremadura had regarding this summer , which is being a good summer for tourism in general.

Regarding overnight stays, he highlighted that they are also very good, since 1,500,126 overnight stays have been reached in these first 6 months of this year , the same figure reached in 2019, considered globally the best year in tourism so far.

And it is that in the words of Francisco Martín these data are irrefutable, they are two key data that together with the number of cutlery sold by the hotel industry make this summer “a good tourist moment”.

However, it is necessary to continue being prudent , working with the sectors, associations and local action groups to continue betting on quality tourism that is an engine of socioeconomic development. He stressed that thanks to the labor reform, the job that is being created is being a higher quality job.

Meetings with areas affected by the fires
The general director of Tourism of the Junta de Extremadura, Francisco Martín, has highlighted that they are meeting with the areas affected by the fires, in all of them he wanted to show his “empathy, solidarity and support” in the localities that have suffered some cancellations “because of the tremendous vision of some national television network” that with headlines such as “hurdes are burning or Extremadura is burning” have negatively affected the promotion of the area. For this reason, he appeals to responsibility and asks the media to cite specific locations and not name regions in a general way.

To support both the areas affected by the fires and the rest of the region, in September the Minister of Tourism, Nuria Flores, will present a tourism promotion campaign in regional and national media , both on television, radio, press and digital media. to invite you to visit this “Extremadura destination” with great natural beauty, a rich heritage, culture and excellent cuisine. According to the General Director of Tourism, “the colors and flavors of autumn in Extremadura will enable travelers to have unforgettable experiences”.

In addition to this campaign , television programs and webinars will be promoted from the affected areas.

Marketing support
Another of the Board’s commitments will be the “Meets” in Seville (October 6) and Lisbon (October 27) , both Andalusia and Portugal are major sources of tourists in our region, according to Francisco Martín they are two very important markets.

During these meets, tourism entrepreneurs will be able to meet directly with tour operators in order to market their tourism companies and products .

Both the promotion campaign and this support for marketing are intended to work on the consolidation of a sector both in the final part of summer, as well as in autumn, winter and next spring. A long-term vision that seeks to continue improving trends.

Two Decades Of Bribes At The Expense Of The Fires In Spain

Forest fires burn thousands of hectares throughout Spain every year and produce, in the most extreme cases, irreparable environmental and human damage. However, a specific group of companies were able to see a business opportunity in these catastrophes.

This is the self – called Group 6 , a criminal organization that for two decades dominated public contracting of aircraft for firefighting in Spain . The Anti-Corruption Prosecutor calculates that the total of the agreements would have exceeded 151 million euros .

Founded in 2001 by a group of companies in the aviation sector -among which are Avialsa, Grupo FAASA, Trabajos Aéreos Extremeños, Grupo Martínez Ridao, Espejo and Cegisa- , Group 6 agreed to share the fleet of firefighting aircraft and distribute Spain geographically, while with the competitions they distributed them on a rotating basis . As published this Sunday by the newspaper El Español , the organization had the support of officials and politicians from the PP, PSOE and CIU of Andalusia, the Valencian Community, Galicia, the Balearic Islands, Castilla-La Mancha or Catalonia throughout the entire time it was active. .

In order to be awarded the contracts, the members of the group reached clandestine agreements through which they managed to get the administrations to accept their prices – much higher than those of other entities – in exchange for deliveries of cash and the payment of gifts of all kinds, from hunts to trips .

Among the contracts that the Prosecutor’s Office has investigated is that of the Andalusian PSOE in 2010 for the transfer by plane of José Antonio Griñán , president of the Board at that time, to a party act in Roquetas de Mar. It has also followed the trail of the gifts received by some public officials, such as the former Valencian Minister of the Interior, Serafín Castellano (PP), who received “no less than 167,177.02 euros” in the form of spa sessions and specific cash deliveries, among others.

Years after it began to investigate the fraudulent contracts of the fire cartel, the trial has not yet begun and, since there is no final ruling, the companies that make it up have continued to present themselves and win most of the public tenders in Spain. .

The Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office requests prison sentences for businessmen, disqualification from obtaining subsidies and the payment of millionaire compensation . Likewise, it has requested that the members of Group 6 be prohibited from contracting with the public sector for a period of 15 years.

Ukraine’s New Strategy Leaves The Russian Enemy Unanswered

After several weeks without significant changes on the front, the Ukrainian Army has turned the campaign upside down with several sabotage actions in Donbas , the southern corridor and the annexed Crimean peninsula , which have left the Russian enemy without response.

“Our strategy is to destroy logistics, supply lines, ammunition depots and other military infrastructure. This causes chaos in the Russian ranks ,” said Mykhailo Podoliak, a presidential adviser.

Russia finds itself in a situation where it is neither making breakthroughs towards Ukrainian strongholds in the Donetsk region nor can it ensure the security of its stockpiles and supply chains in Crimea and regions bordering Ukraine.

Crimea has been hostile territory for Ukrainian troops since the start of the “special military operation” in February and, in fact, the units that conquered part of the southern regions of Kherson and Zaporizhia came from the peninsula.

Last week nine Russian planes, according to satellite images, were destroyed in explosions at a military airfield . This Wednesday Kiev admitted that they were caused by Ukrainian partisans . On Tuesday it was the turn of an arsenal with fuel and ammunition , an attack that forced the evacuation of thousands of people and that the Western press, citing official sources, attributes to special Ukrainian units.

Today, the Crimean Bridge, the engineering feat that broke the isolation of the territory and linked the peninsula with Russia, is no longer beyond the reach of the Ukrainian forces. ” It is an illegal construction and it is the main door for the supply of the Russian Army. These infrastructures must be destroyed”, indicated Podoliak.

In this regard, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz assured that the West provides kyiv with weapons so that “Ukraine can protect its sovereignty and territorial integrity.” Precisely, the sabotage of the last week has caused panic among tourists , who quickly left the peninsula the day before through that bridge.

“And the queue these days to leave Crimea for Russia over the bridge shows that the vast majority of citizens of the terrorist state already understand, or at least feel, that Crimea is not the place for them,” the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky .

Medium term strategy
kyiv publicly admits that the objective is to slow down the Russian advance in Donbas, thus buying time to receive more Western heavy weapons, as happened in the long sieges of Mariupol and Severodonetsk. In fact, Podoliak admitted in an interview with The Guardian that his country has requested more than 50 multiple missile launchers from allies .

Both the Ukrainian and Russian authorities have warned that the sabotage actions will continue until the arrival of winter. Precisely, Zelensky urged those who live in territory controlled by Russia or pro-Russians not to approach military installations . He added that in order to expel Russian troops from Ukraine, it is necessary to make the war with Russia more difficult every day, an objective that he described as the “main politico-military task.”

Russian leaders hope “that the Ukrainians, the Europeans and the whole world will get tired of this war.” “We must do everything so that it is not us or our friends and partners who get tired , but rather our enemy,” he stressed.

Frozen conflict?
Faced with recent claims by Russian President Vladimir Putin that the full-scale war has not even just begun, some experts are already predicting that the conflict will last until at least next year .

We must do everything so that it is not us or our friends and partners who get tired, but our enemy”
” I don’t think the freeze variant is possible. There may be a decrease in activity depending on the season. Modern wars are resource wars. Resources, of course, run out on both sides. And each side he needs time to recover,” said Oleksiy Reznikov, Ukraine’s defense minister.

Reznikov stressed that the Russian Army lost a third of the military potential it used at the beginning of the armed intervention, which includes airborne forces, marines and members of special forces, as well as a thousand pilots.

“That is why, let’s say, a cooling is possible from the point of view of combat. It is a war. A war of survival . And we are going to defend ourselves to survive,” he told The Voice of America and estimated the number of troops at 135,000 Russians currently fighting on Ukrainian soil, including many non-professional soldiers.

Mahou San Miguel Will Invest 7 Million In Lleida Factory

The Mahou San Miguel brewing group increases its investments in Catalonia. The company has announced an investment of 7 million euros for its historic plant in Lleida, cradle of the San Miguel brand, during this year. The expense will be used mainly for energy efficiency and enhancing the sustainability of a center to which the company has already allocated 26.5 million euros over the last decade.

The Lleida facility currently employs more than 160 people and is considered strategic within the map of plants that the conglomerate has in Spain. Hence, it allocates these 7 million euros in 2022, one million more than those spent last year.

During this financial year, Mahou San Miguel will allocate, for example, five million euros to eliminate plastic from packaging and replace it with cardboard boxes. Other infrastructure digitization and automation initiatives are also being prepared.

Mahou San Miguel spent 26.5 million in 10 years
“We have reinforced our investment to have our facilities at a level of efficiency, quality and competitiveness that allows us to continue generating employment and wealth,” said Jordi Guixé, director of the factory.

The figure adds to the 26.5 million invested in the plant during the last decade. In 2021, they highlighted the expansion of the can packaging warehouse and the adaptation of the production lines to be able to produce new beer products.

Mahou San Miguel thus reaffirms its commitment to a historic center, which opened its doors in 1957. Its origin dates back to the idea of ​​two entrepreneurs from the region, who started the San Miguel brewery after obtaining the brewing method and machinery from the Philippine San Miguel Brewery. The company changed hands in 2000, when the Madrid group Mahou acquired the organization.

The Premature Balance That Ribera Carries Out

The premature balance that Ribera carries out. The third vice president of the Government, Teresa Ribera, assures that the Executive’s energy saving plan has already reduced consumption by almost 4%.

Ribera’s haste in publicizing this calculation can only be surprising, considering that the decree-law has only been in force for a week. In addition, in those seven days, factors that the vice president seems to exclude from her analysis of her acted.

This is the case of the withdrawal of the heat wave, precisely at the end of said week, which drastically reduced the consumption of air conditioning. In addition, in the middle of August, there are thousands of homes and offices that are empty for vacations . Everything thus points to a too premature balance, and even triumphalist, on the part of the Government.
