DWP entered the pay freeze in 2010 and will exit it this year.

In both the autumn statement and the April Budget Statement, the Chancellor announced that there was a case for considering how local pay could better reflect private sector labour markets.

We are currently actively engaged with Cabinet Office and other Government Departments regarding principles for reform and an agreed view of the market rate and metrics for different roles in different locations.

No decisions have yet been taken on how local market facing pay will impact on staff in DWP.
