Formerly on one of the fta contracts, around half of the intake I was in have now moved on due to having no confidence there would be any extension. Could be wrong but seemed the right time to secure a longer term job.

Have spoken to colleagues and on a recent JP Marks call he said nobody should jump ship just yet. Fingers crossed that's good news for everyone still there.

I was invited to a meeting by the grade 7 of our team on Monday, with a SCS in attendance. The question was asked and the response was (in light of the fact no info was given this month as stated) that it was being pushed for info prior to Christmas but couldn’t guarantee…. Same old story 😂

Also attended a national PCS meeting and a representative who attended said DWP had a ‘good track record’ of making FTAs perm - though obvs no guarantee, but is high on PCS agenda too.

Again, nothing concrete, but that’s the most up to date info that I’ve been able to ascertain this far.
