Jobcentre Plus: Resignations

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many staff have left their post in Jobcentre Plus in each region in each month of the last five years. (241449)

The administration of Jobcentre Plus is a matter for the acting chief executive of Jobcentre Plus, Mel Groves. I have asked him to provide the hon. Member with the information requested.

Letter from Mel Groves:

The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question asking how many staff have left their post in Jobcentre Plus in each region in each month of the last five years. This is something that falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Acting Chief Executive of Jobcentre Plus.

Leaver information by region is not available prior to May 2006 due to data capacity reasons. The attached tables show the total number of leavers from Jobcentre Plus in each region for each month since May 2006.

1 In a minority of cases it has not proved possible to identify the region that an individual works in. This is due to the data not being available in the Jobcentre Plus Resource Management system.

Note:

The figures include those coming to an end of a temporary contract. This does not include people who have left Jobcentre Plus to take up a post elsewhere in the Department for Work and Pensions.
