Hi,

Has anyone’s year contract as a work coach for dwp been extended yet, for people who started a year ago now?

Or at the 12 months has it just closed.

I would love to know that too. And maybe if someone got more than 12 months on their FTA already..I read that some people got 18 months when offered the jobs, just don't know if they were from this 2021 campaign. Best of luck to you

Hows it going so far for you? Do they say anything or do you have any evaluation?

Hi I love the job. You will have reviews with your manager but ultimately you are left to your own device. You are expected to manage your own time and diary

Nope: they have no idea and can’t give any guarantees. I hope I stay as I will be finished up at Xmas if not!

I started in may 2021 and am concerned it won’t actually be that much of an extension for us newer guys e.g if they extend all of the fixed term contracts to july 2022 it’s only an extra 2 months for me whereas people who are due to finish their 12 months soon this could be an up to extra year on their contract which is amazing for them!!

I personally think it will be an extra year on current contract. There is far too much need for the role. I could be wrong but I feel it will keep being extended

Make sense they extend people who are on the job longer and the new ones get extended later on. Did they said how would that be? Like an extension to each contract or a set date to everybody? Like, if you got in now it would be offered like 18 months or everybody has a job until january 2023 (just making things up, guys)…

I got the impression it would be a set date Eg jan 2023 like your example. So it would mean different extensions for everyone!

Not sure if this helps at all or puts doubts on extensions for some, but I heard this gossip (I'm on leave this week) and have seen on the trade union site that AO's were all extended to March 2022. No idea when AO's were recruited and if that is long or not on their original contracts, but it may factor into our dates for extension.

It was mentioned on the colleague call this morning and I found it strange why they didn’t announce AO and EO at the same time. My thoughts are that there is a greater need for WCs and they may be extended long term and announcing them together may have been a kick in the teeth for AOs.
