Taxi Ranking - breaks for advisors

09 Jan 2009

Following the issue of the branch briefing DWP/BB/001/09 we have been contacted by some representatives and members concerned that the move to using a "Taxi Ranking" system for interviews by advisors would mean that advisors would no longer be able to take a tea break in the morning and afternoon.

This is not the case.

Taxi Ranking

06 Jan 2009

One way of helping customers and staff that Jobcentre Plus has identified is to introduce "taxi ranking" for New Jobseeker Interview appointments (NJI). This system has been trialed in at least one region and has now been suggested to all of Jobcentre Plus. It may not be used in all offices, but most managers will at least consider whether it could help in that location.
