§ Ms Jowell
Although no specific assessment of this kind has been made, a national network of Employment Service Jobcentres exists to provide all individuals who need it help with finding work, including those who work on a part-time or seasonal basis. This is successful in enabling most people to leave unemployment quickly.
Part-time and seasonal work are valuable forms of employment and income. For those who, nevertheless, face substantial labour market disadvantage, there is a wider range of programmes and other individualised help designed to overcome the barriers that may prevent people from being in work.
