CyTA inundated with job applications

A LOW-PAID entry-level job at telecommunications authority CyTA this year attracted over 3,000 more applicants than it did when last advertised two years ago.

About 4,400 people applied for one of the about 100 positions in customer service and  sales, jobs paying €8 an hour with very few benefits, CyTA told the Cyprus Mail yesterday.

And although people generally tend to come and go in those jobs, viewing them as temporary stop-gaps, fewer people have been leaving over the last two years, the company said.

For this round of applications, CyTA had asked all job applicants to pay €25 to apply for the job, returnable to those fulfilling the criteria and who were invited for a written interview.

Despite the application fee, “aiming to encourage only people truly interested in the positions” according to a CyTA announcement, thousands more applied than they did two years ago.

When the company advertised for sales staff in 2010 it received around 1,000 applications.

The September jobless rate in Cyprus climbed to 12.2 per cent, one of the highest year-on-year increases in the European Union.  According to the island’s statistics service (Cystat), the number of jobless people reached 39,510 in October, a 29 per cent year-on-year rise. The jobless rate among young people is around 25 per cent.

Of those registered as unemployed in October, around 13,000 – almost 40 per cent – are salespeople or non-specialised staff including cleaners and messengers. Last month, there were 5,500 registered unemployed shop assistants and salesmen and 770 registered unemployed managers and senior officials.
