MARBELLA Town Hall has opened up 500 new job opportunities in a bid to cut unemployment.
However, the jobs will only be temporary posts over the next few years.
Locals were invited to put their names on a register of candidates, from which the town hall will draw temporary employees as and when it needs them.
The majority of jobs involve cleaning, gardening and maintenance work.
Some 10% of the posts will be reserved for applicants with a disability.
