The administration of Jobcentre Plus is the responsibility of the chief executive, Darra Singh. I have asked him to provide the right hon. Member with the information requested.
Letter from Darra Singh:
The Secretary of State has asked me to reply to your question asking how many Jobcentre Plus staff (a) have been made redundant and (b) have failed to have a fixed term contract renewed in each month since January 2008. This is something that falls within the responsibilities delegated to me as Chief Executive of Jobcentre Plus.
No Jobcentre Plus staff have been made redundant since January 2008.
The table below gives details of the number of people on Fixed Term Appointments (FTAs) that left when their contracts came to an end for each month since January 2008 to September 2009. This is the latest date for which figures have been published.
Please note that this will include people who have already had their contract end date extended, but then leave on their new end date without further extension. The figures exclude people that have left before the end of their contract for various reasons, such as dismissal for poor performance and resignation. Numbers quoted are in full time equivalents.
2008 2009 January 1 2 February 0 4 March 11 7 April 4 5 May 0 5 June 9 5 July 6 11 August 13 6 September 14 15 October 5 — November 3 — December 4 — Source: Dataview
I hope this information is helpful.
