Details

If you want to discuss how your organisation can work with Jobcentre Plus to help people back into work, you can contact your nearest Jobcentre Plus District Manager.

Jobcentre Plus wants to work with local public and voluntary organisations that will help unemployed people move off benefits and into employment. Some opportunities focus on specific measures or specific groups.

We’ve also published contact details for Department for Work and Pensions national partnership teams.

Providing work focused activities

DWP also uses a Dynamic Purchasing System to buy work focused activities to help people move into work. Get more information and find out how to bid for the opportunity to supply these activities on Contracts Finder.
