Deptford needs a Jobcentre

31 Mar 2009

On Friday 13/03/09 PCS members at Deptford Jobcentre Plus were advised that it was likely that the Deptford Job Centre would close, as the lease is due to expire in November 2009. Lewisham Council have major plans to redevelop Deptford town centre and planning permission has been granted to build a restaurant and private flats on the site currently occupied by Jobcentre Plus.

Combatting the recession

18 Mar 2009

Jobcentre Plus told negotiators from the GEC at a recent meeting that they intended to recruit 2,500 additional staff every month between now and October. This would reverse the job cuts of recent years and increase the Jobcentre Plus headcount to 82,000. They intend to recruit 50 Band C€™s and 50 Band B€™s in every Jobcentre Plus District. PCS welcomed the additional staff to relieve the excessive pressure members currently face.
