Consell begins steps to stabilise 242 administration posts

The human resources department of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that publication in the coming days of a related notice in the Official Bulletin of the Balearic Islands (BOIB) will mark the start of a process to stabilise 242 positions held by civil servants and other personnel across 59 groups and categories of the Consell de Formentera.

This process, as Paula Ferrer, councillor of human resources, put it, "is about ensuring job stability and that these positions become permanent". Councillor Ferrer traced the process to an agreement reached in May as part of negotiations with unions representing employees of local government. The councillor, who praised the involvement of the island's trade unions, said the special offer of employment stemmed from a piece of legislation, Act 20/2021, that involves urgent measures.

Online form, useful guide and info session
To make the process easier, a form is available at the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC). In addition, a help service will be available by appointment at the Citizen Information Office (OAC) to assist people with their application. Interested parties need only fill out a form; no documents are required. Applications must be received twenty working days after the announcement is published in the BOIB. A useful guide will be made available to Consell de Formentera staff and can also be found on the website of the Consell de Formentera.

To highlight the ins and outs of the process, on Friday 11 November, the human resources office has scheduled an info session at the Sala de Cultura (Cinema).

The offer is open to all interested parties, whether or not they are employees of the Consell. It is not exclusive and any individual who meets the requirements may apply. Questions? Want more details? Contact the department of human resources by e-mail at selecciopersonal@conselldeformentera.cat or by phone.

Formentera honours its athletes

foto 2022xi gala esport CAt the Formentera Sports Gala held today in the Sala de Cultura-Cinema, Formentera paid tribute to athletes, clubs, volunteers, sponsors and people who excelled in local sport in 2020 and 2021. Andrea Romero and Mateo Sanz were proclaimed the best male and female athletes of the last two years. The gala, which was presented by sports journalist Maria Mayans, featured demonstrations in karate, taekwondo and figure skating and was broadcast on the YouTube channels of the Consell de Formentera and IB3.

Additional accolades went to Club Bàsket Formentera, which was named best club, Cosmitos Deportivo and SD Formentera, best teams, and Helena Lafuente and Mateo Jiménez, most promising athletes. In addition, Alex Figueiras was celebrated for exemplary coaching; Agustí Moyà for most sportsmanlike values, and Maria del Carmen Costa for pre-eminent efforts to promote sport, with Trasmapi named the best sponsoring company.

Gala attendees additionally applauded outstanding athletes in every specialty where a candidate sought consideration. Awardees included Luka Romero (football), Roger Márquez (tennis), Alex Buchau (windsurfing), Andrea Romero (athletics), Pamela Torres (judo), Darío Ibañez (cycling), Martí Juan (triathlon), Carla Santamaría (archery), Paula Escandell (taekwondo) and Verónica Luceno (indoor football).

Ana Juan, president of the Consell de Formentera, closed the ceremony. She applauded award recipients and framed the gala as, above all, acknowledgment for all those who make sport possible on the island. "Sport enriches us as a society. This is why we must never lose sight of its value as a social transformer and tool to boost participation, social integration and equality... Sport helps us eliminate barriers and overcome prejudices that, sadly, many still hold. The Consell de Formentera will continue fomenting sport and accentuating sportsmanlike values from the bottom up and in everything we promote".

For her part, Paula Ferrer, councillor of sport, praised the efforts of "the entire family that is Formentera sport, particularly during the challenging times of the pandemic". She also offered special kudos "to collaborating volunteers, without whom these events would be impossible".

After the ceremony, pupils of IES Marc Ferrer's cooking and services module served light food and drinks to award winners and the audience.
