The Government of Spain has just announced the largest public job offer (OPE) in the history of our country for this year, with a total of 44,787 jobs. A large number of vacancies including a modest number of IT jobs, 1,330, less than 3% of the total, according to information published in the Official State Gazette (BOE).
Of all these places, 980 are for newly hired officials and 350 for internal promotion. Of the first 280 are for computer systems management personnel of the General State Administration (AGE), framed in subgroup A2 of public employees, and 700 of auxiliary computer technicians of the AGE, who belong to subgroup C1. Of the latter, 200 are for computer systems management personnel and 150 for auxiliary technicians.
Differences between the positions. These figures mean that, of all the IT specialists that the AGE plans to hire, only a minor part of them will be engineers, 480, while the rest will be vocational training technicians, 850. Since, in order to apply for management staff positions, computer systems it is necessary to have a university degree, while for assistants a FP is required.
When it comes to salary, the differences between the two are important. Although the calculation of State remuneration for its workers is difficult in general, since different common and specific supplements must be added to the base salary, in global terms, computer systems management personnel usually start at a salary of between 35,000 and 40,000 euros per year and computer assistants between 20,000 and 25,000, depending on various sources consulted by Xataka. Amounts that increase over time due to seniority and promotions.
Same seats as in 2021. With this call for public employment, the Government has almost traced the places of the OPE of 2021, when it offered 1,280 for ICT positions. With the difference, yes, that last year the total offer was just over 30,000 jobs and this year it is close to 45,000.
By comparison, in 2021 the Government allocated just under 4.5% of the vacancies in the call for computing, while this year the jobs in this discipline barely exceed 2.5% of the total.
