Applications are open now, and anyone who is looking for a Civil Service career is encouraged to apply.

Universal Credit review agents check claims to ensure people are receiving the payments they are entitled to.

“Successful applicants will be part of an exciting new team offering on-the-job learning and development, with opportunities for hybrid working to fit around your home life and caring responsibilities” said Mel Stride, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.

“I am thrilled we are investing further in Leicester 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.”
