EO in Barrow-In-Furness
on 24 February 2021
Rewarding challenging career
I worked at DWP for 22 years and really enjoyed my time overall. I have worked in many job roles during this time most recently as a Work Coach which was challenging but rewarding. Supportive colleagues and management team. Family friendly and provided me with a good work/life balance throughout my time.
Executive Officer (EO) in Jobcentre
on 30 January 2021
Vibrant place of work, with a new different challenge each day
I gave the organisation a lot of my working years, and gained a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience. I made a lot of social acquaintances, who made the journey of employment there very enjoyable.

Civil service from an ex employee perspective
I work for DWP for just short of 15 years. I started off at Child support agency did 2 years there then went to work for the Jobcentre call centre for 8 years then did a year at Benefit centre then just over 2 years at actual Jobcentre face to face. The call centre environment can be quite tough as its stats and performance based, it's the people who work there as colleagues who help you through it. The interview process is competency and behaviour profile based applications. It does take a long time to do the actual application as competency writing in my opinion is a art. The S.T.A.R process helps with this though. If you do get to the interview stage your confidence needs to be sharp otherwise it shows in the interview. The management is good unless you get to face to face stage and that moment I felt abandoned and isolated and up to a point bullied. Your just another figure on a piece of paper and there policies are there biggest contradiction. They encorage a positive B.A.M.E culture but certainly can't follow that through as I have witnessed in the years I was there.

Rife with bullying and breaches of personal information
typical day perform daily tasks get bullied by management who make you feel like your always in the wrongcondecending attitudes from team leaders as well as unprofessional behaviour from senior management having public meltdowns on site wide skype callsmade to feel stupid and don't take own intelligence into account when it comes to understanding basic computer programs ie Internet explorer/SkypeDont care about personal health matters and discuss them freely with other members of the site without prior consent.

More interested in Sanctions
Having worked for the DWP and formerly the Benefits Agency I can say that the current culture is more about sanctioning job seekers whereas previously it was more focused on helping people back to work. I would not work there again in the current culture.

An example of a time you had to make a difficult decision A time where you've had to give information to a group of people and hold their attention A time where you've had to produce high quality work to a tight deadline while also focussing on other tasks
