The Job Lot is set in a busy West Midlands Job Centre and focuses on the relationships between the people that work there and the people that don't work there, or anywhere else for that matter...
It's work, or the lack of it, that brings the characters together, and their relationships, or lack of them, around which the series revolves.
Joining them in the day-to-day madness is co-worker Angela (Jo Enright) - a woman so sour she could curdle milk. Series 1 saw Danielle (Tamla Kari) who'd just returned to work after giving birth, working alongside Karl, whilst Natalie (Laura Aikman) joins as Trish's deputy in Series 2.
Protecting the staff of the Brownall Job Centre are two security guards; diminutive Janette (Angela Curran) and her colleague, cheeky charmer, Paul (Martin Marquez). Their unique skills are unlikely to be tested if the Job Centre regulars such as Graham (Tony Maudsley) and Bryony (Sophie McShera) are the kind of 'customers' they have to contend with.
Series 3: The second series ended with Karl finally get together with sexy deputy manager Natalie. In Series 3, the couple find out just how difficult it is to have a relationship in front of all their colleagues, and a very demanding boss.
