Jobcentre Plus - Are You UB40's 1 in 10? Review with images

AdvantagesFree service to job seekers and employers

DisadvantagesJust because it's free doesn't mean it's any good!

"I have dealt with Job Centre Plus on three separate levels and thought I'd discuss two levels here, the third level being inappropriate as I worked with them as in a partner business so morally I feel it might be unfair to disclose information gained about their practices here. So the two areas I'm going to look at are about my experiences: 1. As a job seeker claiming benefits and trying to find work 2. As an employer trying to source potential ..." Read review

Wembley Job Centre

AdvantagesBy signing on every 2 weeks you get some money.

DisadvantagesThe staff are not very well trained.

"...ironies of recession is the job centre has to start laying people off just as they get busy, the governments loss of income tax revue through high unemployment meaning they have to cut its public spend across the board. In fact over 250 Job centres have closed in the last three years alone.

Dole me out some money

AdvantagesSupport for some people

DisadvantagesOne size fits all

"...and enjoyable relationship with the job centre. Actually you can substitute necessary and tolerable for happy and enjoyable. After 16 years with the same company the opportunity to get a nice redundancy package and the chance to change career path was too good to refuse as it also gave me the chance to have a year away from the work environment. Jobcentre plus as it is now known is where you have to go to register for unemployment benefit now ..." Read review
