Disability Employment Advisers

Volume 700: debated on Thursday 20 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

For each of the three years of the current Comprehensive Spending Review, how many disability employment advisers they plan to employ on a full-time basis; and how many on a part-time basis. [HL2464]

Jobcentre Plus currently has 500.81 whole-time equivalents in disability employment adviser roles. Of these, 304 are full-time and 327 are part-time.

In 2008-09 Jobcentre Plus is planning to have 629 whole-time equivalent disability employment advisers. For 2009-10 and 2010-11 we expect our numbers of disability employment advisers to remain the same. It is not possible to break this figure down into numbers of full and part-time staff at this stage of the planning process.
