The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Can you please tell me the role of a jobcentre work coach?
For example the government state they are there to support the claimant into work....
Is questioning the claimant on spending money on a coffee in their remit?
Is questioning the claimant why they have spent some of their savings, when they have no other money coming in, in their remit?
Is studying claimants bank accounts in their remit?
What have the above got to do with supporting claimants into work?

Yours faithfully,

Trudy Baddams
