  1. Rent-to-own company Brighthouse will close 30 of its stores and cut 350 jobs, shrinking its size by around a tenth. The closures around Britain are due to take place over the next two months, with Brighthouse's 3,000 workforce already informed. https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-6673493/Rent-firm-Brighthouse-close-30-stores-cut-350-jobs.html?mrn_rm=rta
  2. Santander is to close 140 branches, putting 1,270 jobs at risk, the Spanish-owned bank said.The lender said the closures are in response to how customers are choosing to carry out their banking. Santander has consulted unions on the proposed changes and will seek to find alternative roles for the 1,270 staff members affected, wherever possible. The bank expects to be able to redeploy around a third of that number. Susan Allen, Santander’s head of retail and business banking, said: “The way our customers are choosing to bank with us has changed dramatically in recent years, with mor

  4. Carpetright has said it is closing 92 stores - resulting in 300 job losses - as it fights for survival under a sweeping restructure. The beleaguered retailer, which employs 2,700 people in the UK, said 11 of the sites earmarked for closure had already stopped trading. The move follows a review of its property portfolio which found 205 sites were underperforming or on unfavourable lease terms. Carpetright said it hoped to relocate affected staff - and said rent would be slashed on the other 113 struggling sites under the rescue plan. Wilf Walsh, chief executive of Carpetrigh
  5. Online retail giant Shop Direct is to close three distribution centres putting almost 2,000 jobs at risk. The company – which owns Littlewoods and Very.co.uk – is to close sites in Shaw, Little Hulton and Raven, all in Greater Manchester, from mid-2020 onwards. It said it plans to build a new warehouse in the East Midlands employing 500 people, but that redundancies were likely. https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/2000-jobs-risk-littlewoods-owner-shop-direct-shuts-three-warehouses-135202471.html
  6. British Gas owner Centrica says it will shed 4,000 jobs by 2020 as it announces a big fall in operating profit. The group said that it was chasing savings of £1.25bn per year by 2020 and that this would likely see a "reduction in like-for-like headcount of around 4,000" by the same year. Some 65% of of the savings will be in operating costs and around £350m will be in the consumer division, which will see "further digitisation". There will be a further 1,000 roles created by 2020 across three departments, however. The announcement came as the firm reported its full-year res

  8. I was hoping that if I ended up on JSA, I could do their token jobsearch on the abysmal Jobmatch site and then do my own jobsearch later on at home at proper sites like Indeed or whatever, but it seems they're not letting you do that without a sanction. Why is that? Don't they trust us to look for ourselves? They honestly don't want people claiming benefits in the first place so it would be obvious that they would help us in our OWN jobsearch rather than theirs. In fact, I heard a rumour that those upright machines with the touchscreens that print out jobs for you have disappeared entirel
  9. Change in government’s energy policy blamed for job losses just as solar power eclipses coal in electricity generation I just do not get it,why? Article. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/jun/10/uk-solar-power-industry-job-losses-government-subsidy-cuts-energy-policy
  10. If you're a single person with no children you need to work at least 30 hours a week to qualify, but does it have to be from one job only? I'm working part time. If I get a second part time job, would I be entitled to WTC? Sorry for the silly question but I've checked on gov.UK and it's not very clear. Thanks.
  11. Npower, one of Britain's biggest energy suppliers, will outline plans this week to axe thousands of jobs ‎as its German owner attempts to revive the company's weak financial performance. Sky News has learned that Npower will tell staff in the coming days that approximately 2,500 roles at the company and its‎ partners are to be axed. Sources said the proposals were still being finalised, with some of Npower's directly employed workforce of 7,500 at risk and the remainder of the cuts taking place at internal suppliers elsewhere in the RWE group and at outsourcing partners.

  14. When i signed on the 1st June, i noticed a small (half A4 size) notice about a Jobs Fair the day after (2nd June), anyway, i signed on as normal and was just about to leave when i asked about the Jobs Fair, he said it was mandatory, and i left... ...the thing is, he made no attempt during the signing to mention about it or give me a "direction" letter, and because of this i completely forgot about the Jobs Fair the day after. Can i still be santioned for not going, i thought they had to give you written notice of it detailing the penalties for not attending, all i had was just an uno
  15. How can I find out if I am deliberately being turned down for jobs where I have previously work due to someone in authority taking a dislike to me.
  16. Carcraft closure: 500 jobs to go at second-hand car dealer The company has 10 showrooms around the UK The second-hand car company Carcraft is to close, with the loss of about 500 jobs. The dealership, based in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, has 10 showrooms around the country. Carcraft is the UK's seventh-largest second-hand car chain, selling more than 12,000 used vehicles a year, administrators said. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-32538820
  17. I was offered a house which was in dilapidated condition from the council. At the time an acquaintance tried to sort me out with a shared private let, rather than move into this house of horrors, but this fell through. The council deemed me intentionally homeless because of this. I was refused access to my housing officer and refused my right to make a complaint about the property, at the time when i had to make a decision. I had a couple of days time frame to make this decision. My appeal failed and i was to be cast onto the streets like a leper, but fortunate
  18. Jaguar Land Rover says it will create 1,300 new jobs to build Jaguar's first sports utility vehicle (SUV) at its Solihull plant in the West Midlands. The firm has already invested £1.5bn in the Solihull plant to enable it to increase production, and it said its workforce there had almost doubled over the past three years to 9,450. Jaguar Land Rover currently employs 30,500 people in the UK. The car, called the Jaguar F-PACE, will be based on its C-X17 concept car. That was first launched at the Frankfurt motor show in 2013. The new model is due to go on sale in 20

  23. I want tips for getting jobs, rather than just not being sanctioned. Th WP Advisors are not much help, more of a hindrance. Mistake: this should have gone in the Employment Forum. Bad night's sleep problems.
  24. Good Afternoon I hope you are all as well as can be. I wanted some guidance on the following if anyone can help? I'm currently working full-time from 9:00-5:30 Monday to Friday and am looking to do some extra work as a barman in the evening. My salary is £23,500per annum and I take home around £1,500 per month after tax of which my code is 944L. The part-time job i'm going into pay's £7,00 per hour and I will be doing around 12-15hours a week. Does anyone know how this will affect me tax wise?
  25. This morning i went to my first mandatory Jobs and Careers Fair in town, it's a FREE event, yet the staff at the JC treated us like common criminals with their threats of sanctions if we didn't go to it, but that's not all, once we filled in a form (local council housing?), we had to have our name checked off from the JC register (or sanction list as i called it!), we were then given a piece of paper where we had to write down 5 employers that we've met today and what we did, this was also written with the threat of sanctions if we didn't comply! Don't forget, this is a FREE event and everyone
