  1. Hello everyone , today I signed on after being layed off on Monday . It was all going well until they asked for my email address & I asked " why " . They explained they need it for my registration to UJM , I declined immediately the oh so previously nice " coach " told me if I refused I would be " in here every day showing your job search " . It didn't matter that an agency had called me mid interview for a possible position & I had asked if it was ok to take the call , she seemed happy that I was obviously already putting my self out there & getting possi
  2. 1) My 'Actions for getting employment" doesn't stipulate a number of jobs to apply for per week (which is odd, when I claimed before I had to apply for 2). Obviously I don't want to display every single job I apply for (which would risk creating a baseline figure), but what is the minimum number that an Advisor needs to see in order to sanction me (for insufficient applications)? 2) They also included 'log into my UJM account daily' - I have NOT ticked the box that allows the DWP to view the jobs I've applied for, BUT can they still see how often I've logged in? Ta
  3. I am mightily confused. I have been signing on for 12 months, at the start of my claim I signed a claimant commitment stating I will do X number of steps each week to find work, IE look in papers, ask family and friends, use UJM etc. I completed my job search online and always filled in my activity history on UJM, ensuring I recorded X number of steps as required in my claimant commitment. Part way through the year I was told not to use UJM instead I was given a paper template to fill that stated I must do 35 hours job search per week, this had a section to fill stating the tim
  4. Hi everyone, I'm new here and after some advice. I was made redundant from my job last September through no fault of my own and been signing on ever since. However, before Christmas I had an appointment with my advisor at my local job centre and gave me details of a job to apply for but 2 weeks ago I received a letter saying that they are going to stop my job seekers allowance from the end of January to the middle of march. I have since appealed the decision in writing but when i went to the job centre today I had to fill in another form and explain again. I know it was my fault for
  5. Hi , i am on JSA & have only recently started claiming benifits , today i have been informed that i have to attend the JC every week . One week is signing on & job search proof the following is UJM search at the JC. The latter is why i am posting, having shown my " coach " 33 job applications in less than 3 weeks & receiving a phone call while with her in connection for a possible job i still have to go through this UJM search nonsense . I have a UJM account, i have not allowed them access to it & i have no other information other than my
  6. Saw the latest bully and she was late to her own appointment so good start and then she whined I had no work history and claimed volunteering would help yet I've had short term jobs and forced labour previously, she claimed I had no references inspire of my CWP and WP ones - what's the point of these schemes of even the Jobcentre don't acknowledge them?????? Plus wittered on about work trials as selling yourself at interviews she went into bully mode once I showed her my evidence of a previously accepted format to all the other staff I had seen ipreviously and claimed I needed to account for
  7. Hi all. Im on JSA. Was asked to make UJM account to search for work and make log, all is good. Last time i was in the JCP to sign my coach has told me that i MUST bring in my user name and password so they can access my account. I previously gave them my email for the account so they can check im doing my bit as per job seeker agreement which i have no problem with at all. This request for username and password is not wrote on my most recent JSA agreement i note! Its just, im not sure they should be asking for my username and password. I thought that was private? my password
  8. Hello. I have signed on for the first time in a while. My initial interview with my Work Coach didn't go exactly how I had hoped. She mentioned she would be requiring evidence of my work search and since I hadn’t granted her access to my UJM account she could request that I show her either printouts from my UJM account or that I log in at one of the IAD's within the job centre so she could physically look at my account on screen. Now I know I am protected by the Data Protection Act from granting her access to my UJM account. But surely being forced into giving her printouts and he
  9. Hello I just need some advice please I am currently in receipt of jsa. I have now been given one of those job workbook things and on chatting to the advicer he said that i have noticed that you dont allow ujm acess. He explained it was easier for me and them I explained that i was happy to show info print out every fortnight. This is the bit now i am not sure about he said the he needs to se my cv so i said iwill print it out. He said that if i dont give access I would have to log in to my account from the jobcentre to show him. I was not sure if this was correct do i have
  10. I've always kept a paper record of my job search activities, however, it seems that at my Jobcentre, claimants are being heavily pushed to record this on Universal Jobmatch. One of the issues with UJM is that the vast majority of the jobs listed there don't allow you to apply within the site itself and take you to an external site, such as CV Library, Adzuna etc. This then means that your application is not recorded in the 'Application history' section. So, does anyone know if it's acceptable to manually type this information into the 'Activity history' section instead? I am also conside
  11. Hi all My dad is currently on JSA, as he is not good with technology or computers I have to do most of the job search and applications for him. I use sites like Reed and Totaljobs, but the jobcenter people keep threatening him with sanction for not using UJM, now I browse this site for jobs too but hardly ever are there any jobs that can be applied for and most of the jobs just redirect to external site or recruitment agency site for application, so I am lost as to what I can do, can they really sanction him because of that? and is he obliged to give access to his account to them.
