MP visits Cirencester Jobcentre

19th February 2019

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown visits the Cirencester Jobcentre, which is co-located in the CDC offices in the town. This fact alone makes the task of jobseekers much easier because they are able to progress from claiming benefits from CDC into the jobcentre to find work – all in the same building.

He was given a tour of the office with CSL Christine Dawes and Office Manager Donna Cole and met a number of the staff.

Hs said:
“Their job is becoming ever more difficult because jobseekers sometimes suffer from complex medical problems, including mental illness, which must be taken in to account. I was also pleased to speak with one staff member who had undergone PTSD training and is consequently providing professional and sympathetic help to armed forces veterans transitioning to civilian life.

“Despite all of the difficulties, the staff appeared to be happily and productively helping people into work and it is a great tribute to them that their success rate is so high.”
