The requested information for the numbers of FTE (full time equivalent) employees based in Oldham Job Centre since 2010 is:

November 2010 – 168.35 FTE

April 2011 – 153.01 FTE

April 2012 – 128.08 FTE

April 2013 – 134.57 FTE

April 2014 – 136.29 FTE

April 2015 – 128.93 FTE

April 2016 – 79.99 FTE*

April 2017 – 73.77 FTE*

2018 (as of May) – 120.76 FTE

* The lower FTE figures at April 2016 and April 2017 reflect natural attrition (resignations, promotions and transfers), a Voluntary Early Severance package (part of a national DWP scheme), and the continuing improvement in employment figures. From April 2017 onwards additional staff were recruited due to the roll-out of Universal Credit in Oldham, in July 2017.

All figures are rounded to the nearest decimal point due to DWP’s FTE calculation process.
