In an effort to boost Brownall Job Centre’s figures, Trish [Sarah Hadland] calls in the army.  Sergeant Steve Fox [Sean Pertwee] comes in to recruit jobseekers to the armed forces, and finds himself on the receiving end of a very different kind of interest.  
Battle lines are drawn and Trish is going to have to overcome her bad hair day if she wants to get her man. Meanwhile benefit fraud investigator George [Adeel Akhtar] goes undercover to trap a man who’s signing on and working as a decorator, but things don’t quite go according to plan.

Series overview:
The comedy is set in a busy West Midlands Job Centre and will focus on the relationships between the people that work there and the people that don’t work there, or anywhere else for that matter. It’s work, or the lack of it, that brings the characters together, and their relationships, or lack of them, around which the series revolves.
