Hi all,

 

I've just received a letter from the Jobcentre telling me that a doubt has arisen on my claim for JSA "as it appears that you may have refused an offer of employment/training opportunity." It goes on to state what the offer was. Now having looked at the date, I can honestly say I never received any notification of the job being available and secondly if I had, I couldn't apply because the job requires formal IT qualifications which I don't have, so surely this would put me at a disadvantage?

Be good to yourself, when nobody else will

Perhaps because of the employment training opportunity which means even you don't have qualifications for IT the company would train you so the Jobcentre expect you to take the job on.

The job didn't involve training, it clearly stated that you MUST have a formal qualification in IT, something which I lack.

It may be they gave you a job print out which you didnt appear to apply for.

 

All you need to do is write to them, advise why you didnt apply for it (ie not qualified etc). It will then go to a decision maker who will see the facts etc and will be fine.

 

Just send it by recorded delivery or deliver to JC by hand

I read it wrong or the Jobcentre's letter as usual not clear. Perhaps you need to make yourself clear with the Jobcentre what qualifications you have or not there are lots of IT courses which is free whilst you are receiving JSA.

I sign on at 9:40 this morning so I'm taking the letter and my response with me when I see my advisor.

Saw my advisor, he told me to put down why I didn't apply for the job and to mention that I have never actively refused a job opportunity, so now it's a case of waiting on the DM's decision.

I was told to apply for a job that required a driving licence, even though I can't drive. They were being deadly serious when they said I could have my money stopped if I didn't apply for it! When I said I can't drive, they just said I still had to apply! I did apply, got a telephone interview and told them straight away I had no licence and they weren't too happy about the timewasting and asked for the name of the advisor, so I gladly gave it to them!
