Jobseekers across the UK will have easier access to more frontline support as 80 towns and cities nationwide welcome new temporary jobcentres.

The additional sites are the first phase of the programme to expand this support in response to the pandemic, with dozens more expected to follow, to help millions of jobseekers find their next role and get back on track.

The new buildings will bolster the DWP estate, joining those that have been open throughout the pandemic, helping ensure staff can remain COVID secure in line with latest government guidelines.

The sites, some of which are already up and running, will house some of country’s 13,500 new Work Coaches – 10,000 of which have already been recruited.
