The Spanish government has approved the public call for 926 vacancies for the Spanish public employment service (SEPE), the first specific call for vacancies for this body. This call aims to provide the SEPE with sufficient and adequate staff and structure to reinforce the attention to unemployed citizens. It has the support of the trade union organizations CCOO, UGT and CIG. This increase in the number of employees will involve an investment of more than 21.1 million euros to recover part of the 2089 jobs destroyed in the SEPE from 2010 to 2020. In this sense, the trade union CSIF criticizes that this job creation is insufficient to recover the previous workforce of the body.
