I've noticed the last few times I've done job searches down at the job centre that there are a lot of canvassing and door to door sales jobs coming up, particularly Anglian Windows. I have a problem with my foot which sometimes makes walking difficult and painful. I can walk, and often do, but some times I really stuggle. Whilst it's not normally a big issue, another thing I am totally unable to do is balence on my right foot. Would I be able to restrict myself in the sort of work because of this, and if so would I need to get my Doctor to provide evidance or would they expect me to see someone of their choosing.


Another thing, since I began signing on I've started doing volentary work. Can I demand (politely) that my job seekers agreement is changed so that I don't have to start work "immediatly", with say a weeks notice given instead?

It depends on what your Jobseekers agreement says. Have you put Sales as an occupation you are looking for? If it is, you will be expected to apply for Sales vacancies. If you have a medical condition which restricts your walking, a note from your Doctor will help in placing restrictions on your JSA as to the type of Sales positions you can apply for.


With regards the Voluntary work, you will be required to give up any voluntary work to start paid employment. You can't realistically say your voluntary work is more important than finding work. You will of course have time between applying for a job, getting an interview, and being given a start date to inform the organisation you are doing voluntary work for, that you may be leaving.
