temporary Case Manager at the DWP in Hastings
on 17 May 2022
Ever changing work environment
The job is enjoyable, the people are generally good to work with . The job is customer service based and you have to have a wide knowledge to do the job. The job updates daily.
Universal Credit Case Manager in Dundee, Dundee City
on 18 May 2022
Abysmal Organisation and Place to Work
Horrible and toxic place to work. The organisation was horrendously autocratic, treating both claimants and internal staff with contempt. It was clear to me during my time there that the DWP had zero interest in helping vulnerable people. It's objective was very clearly finding ways NOT to pay benefits. If you're looking for an employer that aims to benefit society in a positive way, this is about as far from that as it gets.
Executive Officer - Work Coach in Nottinghamshire
on 17 May 2022
Absolutely awful place to work. If you like being micromanaged this is the place for you. All customers despite own situation are treated the same. You are a number not a person.
Child Maintenance Group Case Worker in Leicester, Leicestershire
on 1 May 2022
Well looked after
Great place to work. Good Management and senior Management. Training second to none, although on going training could be better. Wellbeing catered for and lots of perks
Administrative Officer in Nuneaton
on 27 April 2022
Paid just over minimum wage for a complex job
Pay no way near reflects the job you do, it’s administrative but a lot of finance work which can be time consuming and complex, higher management uncaring
