The Valencian supermarket cooperative Consum will close its 2021 financial year with the creation of 940 new jobs and more than 3,800 temporary contracts during the summer and Christmas holidays.

In the last 7 years, the company has created 6,878 new jobs, a figure that places it as “the largest generator of employment in food distribution in Spain in relation to its size,” the entity highlights in a statement.

Currently, Consum has more than 18,300 workers, of which 72% are women.

In 2020, the cooperative closed the year with the creation of 1,355 jobs, a record figure in the generation of stable and quality employment, taking the last five years as a reference, in which more than 900 jobs were created, on average, per year.

2021 has also been an “intense” year in terms of reinforcement contracts made, both for the summer campaign and for the Christmas campaign.

In addition, Consum has renewed the Top Employers seal for the ninth consecutive year, a fact that consolidates the cooperative as one of the best companies to work for in Spain.

This certification endorses the good practices in human resources of the organisation and validates the cooperative’s management in terms of personnel, for being a company that offers excellent working conditions, supports and encourages talent, strives to improve practices towards its workers and allows them to constantly evolve.
