As most here will know, I registered with UJ ages ago but found it utter rubbish so stopped using it. They can't mandate you to use any specific job-search site and there are far better ones I use. Got this email today from our wonderful friends at DWP..

 

'Our records show that this email address (shown above) is currently registered against an active Universal Jobmatch account.

It’s been a year since you accessed the account and used it to search for jobs. If you would like to keep this account please take a moment to log in. If you do nothing the account will be disabled within 4 weeks.

 

Sincerely,

Just confirms what we already knew; they're monitoring how often you log in to UJ. No surpises there then. What's the betting I'll get another email after my UJ account has expired?

I get emails like that pretty often from websites that require registration but which I haven't logged in to in years. It's the server doing housekeeping, that's all. There may be sinister things about UJM - like that fact that it was basically conceived as a sanction machine - but this isn't one of them.

The idea that all politicians lie is music to the ears of the most egregious liars.

You have complied with the requirements to register and create a UJM account. It isn't your fault that the server has been programmed to delete unused accounts after a preset time.

 

Whilst the automated message may smack of Big Brother, I would look upon it as an opportunity to concentrate on more effective web sites. If you ever get asked by a JCP adviser for your UJM account details, you say, with all honesty, that the DWP has deleted it.

No... you can't eat my brain just yet. I need it a little while longer.
