I assume that the POs will not be recruited specifically from the legal profession. I could be wrong.

The last recruiment:

Job adverts for 86 posts across the country have now appeared on many jobsearch sites, with indeed.co.uk listing DWP Appeals Presenting Officer vacancies at 20 different locations. Interviews begin at the end of November.

The job advert states that:

“It is desirable but not essential that you are a qualified Paralegal or have a law degree.”

Successful applicants with no legal qualification and fewer than two A-levels will be required to undertake an apprenticeship.
