The new Claimant Commitment started on Tuesday 15th October for new jobseekers in Inverness. It will be rolled out to other Jobcentres across Scotland starting later this month and will be fully in place by April 2014.
Inverness Jobcentre is also the first jobcentre in Scotland to roll out Universal Credit, starting at the end of November. This will be limited to single jobseekers with no other benefits claims (such as housing benefit, child benefit, etc).
Universal Credit will not come to any other parts of Scotland before April 2014.
