Employment Evolution Continues to Show Positive Trend in Marbella

The evolution of employment in Marbella continues to be positive. April ended with a new record of social security contributions for the month in the municipality of Marbella. However, a slowdown is perceived following the strong pull of previous years. There is also a new maximum record of self-employed individuals, a trend that continues to grow without stopping. The data is promising as we approach the high summer season.

Contextualizing April’s Employment Figures

On this occasion, Easter had already been celebrated in March, so the April figures need to be contextualized without this tourist period. Employment continues its positive evolution for the third consecutive month, after the January drop following the Christmas campaign, heading towards summer.

This is the best figure for affiliations in this month of the entire historical series, which spans from 2003, therefore the last 21 years. However, a slowdown is observed as if we take the annual data, there are 192 more affiliations than in the same month of 2023.

The month of April ended with 83 more self-employed individuals in Marbella, for a total figure of 14,716, which is a new absolute record.
