The fifth edition of the 'Feria de Empleo del Polígono Sur' was held on Monday, with organisations such as Sevilla FC providing vital backing. As always, a representative from the Sevilla FC Foundation attended an event that has become a key date in the club's annual calendar. This was especially poignant in the Polígono Sur, where the club maintains an impressive presence through many community-based initiatives that seek to provide support to the most deprived area in Spain.
Antonio Álvarez, ambassador for the Foundation, was in attendance at the Centro Social Don Bosco alongside Rocío Blanco, employment minister for the Council of Andalucía, and Álvaro Pimentel, current mayor of Seville. The Foundation managed to promote more than 300 CVs of people who had been struggling to find work, significantly increasing their chances of receiving a job offer.
This support in employment and entrepreneurship is crucial in neighbourhoods such as the Polígono Sur and, through the Sevilla FC Foundation, the club continues to expand its efforts to help local communities in need, namely with its hugely successful ‘Fomentando relaciones con don Bosco’ initiative. This scheme, which is partnered by 'Sevilla FC Club de Empresas,' aims to put job-seekers in contact with dozens of companies that offer specialist guidance and advice when it comes to finding suitable work. The third edition of this initiative will take place in December.
