Unemployed Universal Credit claimants are required to search for work in order to receive their welfare allowance from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) - Universal Credit, introduced by the agency under Iain Duncan Smith, replaced various traditional benefit payments. reports citing foreign media that the UK Department for Work and Pensions has removed an online tool for job seekers from its website after it mistakenly listed 'striptease artist' as a possible future career for Universal Credit claimants, the Telegraph reported.

The tool – Work You Could Do - is designed to help claimants enter the job market by suggesting possible careers, and describing what they entail. However, due to an oversight in the way the web page was constructed, the department accidentally listed "striptease artist" as a potential job to apply for, alongside roles such as hotel assistant, lobby attendant, and bingo assistant.
