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 possible bites for employment but I digress.


The fact she was so quick to threaten me upon my temerity of questioning her was the key to a realisation that this is not all it seems .


I am claiming JSA & Housing benefit & not on the all in one UJM .

Being told I will obey will never sit well with me



from what I have already gathered this is nothing more than a processing / spy centre .

It has been many many years since I last needed help from the state & I am shocked , dismayed & even angry at the Orwellian attitude .


Sorry for the long rant but I am very angry at the so called system .



My questions are


Am I legally obligated to open the UJM account ?


Do I legally have to give them access [ this sent 2 " coaches " into beast mode but still no definitive answer ]


I was asked if I had a CV , I was asked half a dozen times in fact .

I stated I am more than capable of doing my own CV ,

adjusting it for various positions

but still they would not let it go

so that tells me they want a copy ,



am I legally obliged to give them a copy or have one on this UJM account.


Lastly ,

I need a survival guide to my legal rights on this .



Once again , sorry for the ramble but I wont be bullied or treated like a sub human because I have been put out of work but I need the benefits to survive . I can see this being harder than actually working.



Thanks in advance for any help & advice .





PS .......... " Coaches !!! " , where do they dream this nonsense up

In short to your questions


No, but you must be able to prove by other means your activly seeking work


Not sure about CV but they are trying to help. Why wouldn't you take help that's offered?


Yes looking for work can be a job in itself but you need to remember its public money that is being spent here.
