Jobcentre Plus is a government agency supporting people of working age from welfare into work, and helping employers to fill their vacancies. We are part of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and play a major role in supporting the Department’s aim to "promote opportunity and independence for all through modern, customer-focused services."
We aim to provide a high quality and efficient service to all our customers. The DWP Customer Charter sets out the standards you can expect from us and what your responsibilities are in return.
Agencies offer temporary jobs as well as permanent or fulltime jobs. A temporary job could help you get back into full-time work. This would be helpful if you have not worked for many years or you do not have recent work experience.
Temporary work could also give you the chance to get the skills and confidence you need to get back into a permanent full-time job.
Agencies also offer jobs that have flexible working hours which may suit your situation and needs. You can get paid holidays in temporary work.
Some agencies specialise in certain types of jobs. This means they may be able to offer you extra support so you can get a job in a particular area of work.
