A total of 1,760 people have presented themselves to the access tests of the Public Employment Offer that RENFE has called for 2023 with the aim of incorporating 300 new entrants into the manufacturing and maintenance area. 

Of the 300 posts to be filled, 270 are for the whole country and 30 for Catalonia. These correspond to different specialties, namely 167 positions related to adjuster-mounter tasks, 75 related to electricity-electronics tasks, 30 to machines-tools tasks and the remaining 8 related to supplies.

In total, RENFE has launched a Public Employment Offer for 2023 that will allow 1,250 workers to join the Renfe workforce: 500 new entry-level commercial operators (see RENFE-2023-ES), 450 entry-level train drivers and 300 entry-level manufacturing and maintenance operators. This announcement comes after several previous public employment offer process (OPE) implemented last year 2022 in November (RENFE-2022-ES) and March (RENFE-2022-ES). All the jobs included in the OPE will have as a reference the working conditions and remuneration established in the collective agreement of the RENFE Group.
