Within the Southampton, Eastleigh and Hythe Jobcentre area, we now have 16 advisers who work to support ESA customers. The HDEA advisers also offer support to JSA/IS advisers who have customers with a Health condition. HDEA Advisers support customers using a caseload approach.All customers in the ESA Work Related Activity Group who are part of the Jobcentre Plus offer, are assigned to an adviser.
