Greek Labour Ministry Proceeding with Recruitment of Doctors and Nurse

March 16, 2020

ATHENS – The Labour and Social Affairs Ministry is proceeding with the recruitment of temporary healthcare staff in various roles, such as doctors, nurses, and other categories of healthcare and support personnel, in order to respond to the country’s emergency needs and ensure the continuous functioning of the country’s welfare structures, while meeting requirements for extra support of the staff and residents in such structures.

In particular, based on the Legislative Act published on Saturday and the subsequent ministerial decision issued on Monday, the ministry is hiring additional staff to reinforce all welfare structures in the country.

Extra positions may be added within three months in the event of an emergency. In total, the number of places cannot exceed 500.

The aim of the ministry is to protect the organisations that it supervises and deal with the potential losses of workers who are infected by the virus.


ATHENS - It’s been 83 years since Greece declared war on Albania, the occupying Italian army there using sites to fire shells at Greek soldiers who pushed them out - at a cost of 8,000 of them killed - and now new battles have erupted, politically.
