Supermarket chain Mercadona has announced nearly 300 new vacancies for engineers, architects, doctors and IT specialists with salaries of up to €68,000 per annum before tax for the most highly-qualified.
The Valencian firm’s constant expansion, which has already led to 9,000 new store staff members being taken on, means new premises being built, existing ones redesigned and its website and online delivery services increased.
For this reason, Mercadona needs architectural design technicians in Murcia, works coordinators in Tenerife, security system managers and IT engineers in Valencia, among other, similar roles, and is offering a gross starting salary of €44,900 a year, eventually rising to €68,176.
On the same pay scale, six qualified doctors are needed – those who have completed their studies, but not necessarily with any experience as yet – on a permanent job contract, full time from Monday to Saturday.
Eight architects with at least minimum studies in technical architecture, structural surveying, technical engineering or civil engineering are required, and candidates must be willing to travel and have their own vehicle, plus at least a year’s experience and their salary scale are the same as for the other vacancies mentioned.
Employees with a talent for IT are sought by numerous companies across Spain, and these vacancies are notoriously hard to fill – Mercadona is one of these companies, and needs a total of 38.
Professionals need to have a strong aptitude for effecting digital transformation, optimising user experience in online shopping and on the Mercadona mobile phone App, and roles are available in security systems, App and master data project management, and IT support for human resources management, as well as for operations managers, staff training and development.
These roles are based close to Mercadona’s original stamping ground – in Paterna (Valencia province) and are full-time jobs with permanent contracts and the same pay scale as the others.
