The structure of public services means that often a jobseeker ends up being passed from pillar to post, the author of a new report suggests, after a think-tank called for jobcentres to be split up. Guy Miscampbell, said:
What is needed is a radical overhaul of the system which puts the needs of the jobseeker first. The very word jobcentre comes with a stigma.
Instead of attaching labels to people who are not in work we should reform the system to make it as easy as possible for individuals, who often have multiple problems, to work with an organisation that is best suited to helping them into work.
