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.
