Hundreds of new jobs are now available in Swindon.

The government has launched the next wave of a major recruitment drive in the town.

The Department for Work and Pensions is recruiting new Universal Credit review agents, including 400 additional roles in Swindon. The agents check claims to ensure people are receiving the payments they are entitled to.

Successful applicants will be part of a new team offering on-the-job learning and development, with opportunities for hybrid working to fit around employees’ home life and caring responsibilities.

Patrick, a Universal Credit review agent, said: “My job in DWP is very rewarding. I love the teamwork and the career development opportunities in the Civil Service.”

Colleague Doreen agreed, adding: “If you enjoy helping customers and want to work with a great team, working for DWP could be the job for you.”

Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Mel Stride MP, said: “I am thrilled we are investing further in Swindon as part of our wider commitment to grow the economy by getting people into work.

“The role of our Universal Credit Review agents is crucial in our mission to tackle fraud and error, ensuring the taxpayer gets the best value for money from our welfare system.”
