Derby City Council confirms that it is in negotiations with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to co-locate the Job Centre Plus services from Derby Forester House and Derby Normanton into the Council House. These negotiations are on-going and further announcements will be made in due course.
Councillor Baggy Shanker, Cabinet Member for Finance and Governance says of the move:
We are delighted to be working with the Department for Work and Pensions on the co-location of the Job Centre Plus offices into the Council House. This is a great opportunity for both organisations to work more closely together, to deliver efficiencies and provide a better service to the public in Derby City and beyond.
