    I've been on reserve since May. Had a call on 11th Aug saying there is a possibility more jobs will be available and asking if I'm interested. The role was for not in a jobcentre, it was a decision maker for universal credit

    Makes sense as they're starting applications for UC soon from a conversation I had with someone I know at DWP but I don't know how many opportunities are going to be available and where.

    I have been offered the decision maker post after being on reserve since May. However the start date clashes with my holiday that I had booked so I am having to cancel. No movement on start date offered

    Omg no way ? But they can't expect everyone to be available and especially when you been waiting for months .tgsts poor . Very well done though ! Is it in the job centres or the benefit centre ?

    I was called last Friday with a "expression of interest" kind of call from the DWP ... not heard anything else since?

    I was told id be taken off the list as i clarified i was interested. Is this normal procedure for the DWP as i'm assuming they have to get at least 5 people for a training team,seeing as its a DM position for PIP?
    I've never known them to do it but I guess it saves time and money recruiting again . What area are you ? I'm Wales not heard a peep

    Yeah I told them but made no difference had to choose job or holiday. She didn't actually say it was an FTA or permanent, either way I'm taking it as my current contract ends in a couple of months.

    Thank you thats invaluable information, its hard to keep the patience of a saint when you get sucked into a reserve list!

    Congratulations
    Thank you, bittersweet though because I was looking forward to going on holiday! I remember the date they called first time around as it was my birthday lol, just hold on a little longer it sounds like you will get another call.

    Hey guys, I made it through this campaign and got my first choice back in May. I have a feeling more jobs will be advertised soon as the benefits are switching over to UC.
