Employment Schemes: Disability

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN HL5465, tabled on 17 January 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have increased the number of Disability Employment Advisors at Job Centres in the last 12 months.

Answered on

31 January 2022

As at December 31st 2021 DWP had 894.9 full time equivalent FTE (ABM activities1) employees carrying out the Disability Employment Advisor role. This is an increase of 441.3 FTE since January 2021 where the number stood at 453.6 FTE.

1FTE (ABM activities) is from Departmental Management Information which records how much of each persons’ role is spent doing certain types of work activity. The FTE (ABM activities) is therefore lower than the total staff in post.
