Department for Work and Pensions: Somewhere out there

Embed Video
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has revealed a major new multichannel campaign to encourage jobseekers to access support through its 'JobHelp' website. The push was developed in partnership with M&C Saatchi.
As the labour market recovers from the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic in the UK, DWP has partnered with M&C Saatchi to develop a campaign helping jobseekers, those on furlough and ‘the worried working’ to see their strengths differently, and encourage them to discover support, training and advice on finding their next opportunity.

Based on the insight that many jobseekers feel lost in the current labour market, but are keen to put their strengths to work, “Somewhere out there” encourages people to find what they are looking for from work rather than focusing solely on gaining employment. The line “We’ll help you find it” positions JobHelp as the tool that can help you find whatever “it” is for you – whether that’s support, training or a new role. The simple pleasures we gain from work, like a new mate or a payday treat, fulfil lots of emotional needs, so helping people find work is also helping them find self-esteem, comradery, financial security and pride. Searching JobHelp is an opportunity for discovery and reminds people they have options, including a job they never even knew existed.

The campaign launches with a 30-second TV spot directed by Vince Squibb at Academy Films, supported by cinema, radio, digital and social activity. Working with M&C Saatchi M&KE, the DWP has also given the JobHelp digital platform a complete overhaul, from mapping user personas and customer journeys through to design and build.

The campaign reflects the government’s broader ambition to help the country Build Back Better.
