Imperial Tobacco has pledged its support for skills and training projects for jobseekers in the Cantabria region of northern Spain.
The ‘Conduce tu futuro’ (drive your future) course is designed to help people find commercial driving jobs.
Those taking part get lessons to help them gain a commercial vehicle driving licence as well as support in finding work, including CV preparation and interview techniques.
This is the fifth year that the Altadis Foundation has agreed to support the driving course in Santander – home to its Cantabria cigar factory.
In addition, the Madrid-based foundation is helping to provide skills training for vulnerable adults at a social centre in the city.
“In the current economic environment in Spain it’s vital to provide more opportunities for people to find work,” said Ines Cassin, the foundation’s general manager. “These are both pioneering projects which we’re delighted to support.”
