What you can expect from DWP

DWP is a flexible employer adapting at a fast pace to the restrictions presented through Covid-19. We help our staff balance work, home life and support their wellbeing. The role of a Work Coach is adapting to this new world; we're balancing the need to see customers face to face in a Jobcentre, working in our partners' premises and operating virtually. As a Work Coach in DWP you could be working in any or all of these environments each week.

Our aim is to create an environment where everyone feels supported to be their best. DWP strives to be a wholly inclusive organisation and we also pride ourselves on being a Disability Confident Leader. We wholeheartedly commit to the Civil Service ambition to be the most inclusive employer in the UK, we welcome and encourage applications for our Work Coach vacancies from all people from a wide range of backgrounds to help DWP become more representative of the communities we serve.

As a continuously learning organisation, DWP offers a tailored learning and development programme for Work Coaches, to help further build your knowledge and skills to deliver the support and help needed to our customers.

The learning programme is over five modules and covers a wide range of technical and skills based topics from the basics of Universal Credit, through to coaching skills and effective decision making. We want to ensure we offer fulfilling, rewarding careers that attract and retain motivated people.
