Seekers is about the characters that regularly frequent a Job Centre in the Essex town of Rayleigh - from the unfulfilled or aspirational staff that work there, to the mixture of jobless people from every walk of life, some desperate to get back to work, some trying their best to never have to work at all.
Stuart (Mathew Horne), an employee of the Job Centre, has been made redundant and is faced with the belittling scenario of returning to the place where he worked to find employment through people he's pretty sure he can do the job better than.
He didn't really care about the job very much, but he was happy. Well, not happy, he was content to work there, especially because of Senior Job Seeker Advisor, Nicola (Zahra Ahmadi) who he had a one night stand with during half time of the England vs Portugal game in 2006 and still holds out for a relationship to blossom even though it's been over seven years and she has shown no sign of wanting to.
