Just to let everyone know, DWP have opened external Work Coach vacancies with 1000 jobs being advertised for London alone.

There is a current national drive so if you are interested please do have a look.

The London listings are due to close on Wednesday 8th July, so if you are interested don't delay!

Leave a comment if you need help or advice - best of luck

Loads going up North too. Check the contract lengths though.

With such a surge in claimants, it was bound to happen, there is simply not enough Work Coaches in the job centres right now to handle such an additional demand on top of their already rocketing caseloads when JCP fully re-opens. Same with Case Managers. Best of luck to those that apply. Focus your examples around dealing with people directly. Customer service essentially and problem solving - supporting others, especially vulnernable people and demonstrating that you are inclusive.

It seems as though it would be for 12months on a fixed term contract. Would you say its worth applying still. I'm looking to move out of retail and its definitely going to provide me with some talking points. Would internal vacancies be available to those joining the civil service on a 12 month contract?

After 6 months probation you are eligible to move internally through CSJobs, there are a lot more jobs listings available once you are in (across government).

I can't guarantee the 12 month FTA will be extended or made permanent - but it has been the status quo for awhile that the vacancies are listed FTA and people find themselves made permanent.

We have expected redundancies to come in after furlough ends, large caseloads and brexit around the corner - the future is uncertain at the moment.

There are great opportunities to forge a successful career in the CS, getting your foot in the door is key

Hi, I'm currently an AO and I've applied for the internal EO job vacancy. As a lot has changed in terms of behaviours and strengths since i interviewed for my role. I just wanted to know if you have an insight on to anything really, I know the behaviours are similar to competency based questions and there's three listed in the post. But in terms of strength based questions I'm not really sure what to prep/what to expect. If you could reply here or even DM that would be great

I applied for the EO role for DWP. Had my interview on Sunday. I don’t feel like the interview went well. I was so nervous! Have to just wait and see now though. Annoyed at myself as DWP hardly ever have vacancies and if I don’t make it this time I might be waiting a while before I get another opportunity.

I’m currently an AO for HMRC. Not sure if I done well enough to progress to EO yet.

I applied on the 9th of July and haven’t heard anything but I assume with the volume of applications they will be receiving due to redundancies etc. It may take longer than usual. Hopefully they get back to everyone soon 😬😬😬

Yeah I applied on the 8th for london. I keep checking everyday just says “application received” I’ve heard most people recieved a interview after a few days but I’ve heard nothing... fingers crossed we hear something soon. The wait is long and very frustrating....

No same, from what I’ve been reading on here no one has heard back from the London recruitment So far, although this is a very small percentage of the overall applications.
