The Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency (DVSA) has become the latest UK government organisation to join other Department for Transport agencies at the Swansea based shared service centre.
The centre which was taken over by Arvato in 2013 as part of a major government contract, is now delivering back office services such as, HR, payroll, finance and procurement services for 25,000 civil servants across the UK.
DVSA joins the centre along with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) through the Sandringham Park-based operation.
Mathew Copp, Operations Director at Sandringham Park, Arvato UK, said: “Our Swansea centre is now providing a fully standardised, back-office service for the DfT and its executive agencies for the first time in the department’s history, helping civil servants to devote more time to meeting the needs of people up and down the country.”
He added, "Our employees have shown fantastic commitment and hard work over the last year and we expect further local recruitment over the next six months."
Gareth Llewellyn, Chief Executive of the DVSA, said: “Our transition into the Swansea centre has run smoothly over the last 12 months. The collaboration between DVSA and Arvato has been exemplary and central to the success of this transition. We look forward to reaping the benefits of this new way of working.”
