DVLA create 450 new jobs
5 July 2012
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) is to create up to 450 new job at its Swansea HQ as part of an improvement program.
Improvements to the agency include centralising services and increasing the number of online transactions.
Despite the new roles, 34 jobs in Cardiff and 12 in Bangor will be lost when 39 UK regional offices are closed. In Swansea, 30 staff at a local office will relocate to DVLA headquarters.
The Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) says 1,200 jobs in total will be affected by the closures, but the DVLA claims the changes will make it easier for people to deal with the agency, and will save £26 million a year.
Simon Tse, DVLA’s Chief Executive, says: “A top priority for us now is to support our staff who work in our regional offices. We will do everything we possibly can to provide help and guidance during what are clearly uncertain times for them.
"We are working closely with the Public and Commercial Services union and those members of staff directly affected to explore all avenues, including possible relocation to Swansea or redeployment within the Civil Service."
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
Using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour demanding to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
