star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p /> <p>The median length of service of Jobcentre Plus staff in 2009/10 and 2010/11 is recorded in the table below.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Median Length of Service</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009/10</p></td><td><p>11 years, 8 months</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010/11</p></td><td><p>15 years, 1 month</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Jobcentre Plus was re-structured and absorbed into a revised Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Operations structure in October 2011. Since that point, it has no longer existed as a separate organisation. This means the information beyond September 2011 is not available.</p><p> </p><p>For completeness, I have included the median length of service of all Department for Work and Pensions staff for the past 5 years.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Median Length of Service</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009/10</p></td><td><p>12 years, 3 months</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010/11</p></td><td><p>15 years, 5 months</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011/12</p></td><td><p>18 years, 1 month</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>17 years, 3 months</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>18 years, 7 months</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>Length of service is measured as length of service within the Civil Service rather than the Department. The Department’s personnel systems record when an employee joined the Civil Service rather than an individual department or agency.</p><p> </p><p>The increase in the median length of service between 2009/10 to 2011/12 is consistent with the ending of a significant number of temporary contracts in this period. The removal of their low duration of service caused an increase in the median length of service for the Department.</p><p> </p><p>The decrease in median length of service between 2011/12 to 2012/13 was caused by the incorporation of the Child Maintenance Enforcement Commission in August 2012 - who had a lower median length of service than the rest of the Department.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
