In the presentation of the Modernization Plan of the Network of Employment Offices of the SAE designed by the Provincial Directorate of the SAE in Huelva, the territorial delegate for Employment, Training, Self-Employment, Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities, Antonio Augustín, underlines that “the third SAE Office in the capital is launched in order to offer a more comfortable, dignified and efficient service to the unemployed and companies that are served daily in the two offices that the capital has, the SAE-La Orden Office and SAE-Muñoz de Vargas Office. “
“In this sense, –explains- the SAE-Muñoz de Vargas Office, which serves in an oversized way, a high volume of population with annual records that reach 279,275 job applications and an average monthly service of 2,024 users, will count from from 2022 with new facilities. It is a third administrative center of the Andalusian Public Employment Service to solve, finally, the permanent and prolonged situation of overcrowding in the center of Isla Chica, given the physical limitations that make it impossible to provide correct and adequate care to all its users. “
The territorial delegate explained that “this action allows responding to a pending debt with citizens, a fact that will improve the quality of care, guaranteeing the corresponding security and confidentiality measures” and has reported that “in the first In the quarter of 2022, the division of Muñoz de Vargas will become effective to begin to serve simultaneously in both offices, according to a population distribution that we are studying at this time, and that, a priori, would bring users of the municipalities that are served in this office and nearby districts, something that is currently under study. “

(closed since 2006) and that the SAE will adapt to the city of Huelva and inhabitants of the corresponding municipalities. It seems to me worth highlighting that from the SAE we are finally recovering this space, with an unbeatable location and two buildings, fully equipped, which will be fully completed within a maximum period of 2 years. “
In the presentation of the Modernization Plan for the SAE Offices in Huelva, it was also reported that, simultaneously, the SAE is working to open another large space for job seekers and companies.

Once the favorable study by the archaeologists has been completed, an improved, spacious and comfortable office will be built for the rest of the residents of the capital and the towns of San Bartolomé de la Torre, Gibraleón, Trigueros and Beas, completed in the first half of 2023.

A challenge that has taken us more than two years of work by the SAE in Huelva and that, given the limitations of the two offices in the capital, motivates us to work more, streamlining procedures and all kinds of procedures to be able to start these works as soon as possible and the three offices can be fully operational as soon as possible. “
