DWP set to move into Loxley House

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is establishing a new Nottingham base inside the City Council’s headquarters, in a move that it says will improve customer service and save public money.

The ground floor atrium space of the council’s Loxley House offices is due to be occupied by members of staff from the DWP’s Station Street Job Centre from 24th August.The City Council began its own consolidation of services in 2010 when it moved staff from six outdated city centre buildings into Loxley House.Since then, Nottingham City Homes (NCH) has also moved from outdated premises into Loxley House, along with East Midlands Shared Services, the joint finance, payroll and human resources function between Leicestershire County Council and Nottingham City Council.Now the approach is being taken a step further with the introduction of DWP into the building. Up to 30 staff dealing with around 3,000 citizens will initially move to Loxley House.Portfolio holder for jobs, growth and transport, councillor Nick McDonald, said: “We are continually looking for ways to reduce the cost of our office accommodation and make better use of our assets. We’ve already achieved a lot by closing old buildings and relocating staff to Loxley House, which provides on-going revenue savings, as well as income from the sale of former offices.”I’m pleased we’re taking this one step further with DWP’s move to the building. This makes sense not just in terms of efficiency and savings, but also from a customer perspective. We already work very closely with the DWP on a number of successful initiatives to help local people find jobs and apprenticeships and this new arrangement can only help us work together even more effectively.”
