Anyone signed up for the new job site that has been replaced Universal Job Match? I know UJM has had it's faults, but it was way better then Find a job, the new site is useless with jobs, it's terrible, why have this been brought out?

 

Am I the only one who finds it rubbish?

You are not alone. I didn't think much of UJM, and its predecessor was just as bad.

 

I suspect the DWP contract out the design & maintenance to the lowest bidder and doesn't really care about usability or quality as long as they can turn round to parliament and say "look, we are providing help for the unemployed".


PLEASE HELP US TO KEEP THIS SITE RUNNING

EVERY POUND DONATED WILL HELP US TO KEEP HELPING OTHERS

A site has to be provided as part of the governments obligations to the European Economic Area as per EU regulations.

 

 

And as with all government contracts the lowest tender generally wins. Indeed, CV Library, monster etc are all better sites and personally I would be using those.

I personally think find a job is the best site out there the are far more strict on they type of jobs the advertise such as not including zero hour contracts. If you look at find a job stats they 160,000 jobs compared to 10 times more on lets say total 1.5 million. A far better reflection of the current jobs market imo. It records all your activity unlike UJM so easy to print off your searches and records all applications both on site and off site. Finally your work coach will use find a job to find suitable vacancies so it is worth being on the ball in that respect and already be aware what they might spring on you. They cannot access the account nor do you need to use it, it is half decent compared to UJM.

I went to sign on today and my advisor asked me if I use the find a job website and the next time I sign on I have to bring print outs of the jobs that I have applied for on other job sites.

Your choice if you comply or not, only if they try to raise a doubt would you be required to provide more detail such as print outs. So I would ask why they are asking for more than I have given them already? and have done previously without problem. Have I said something that contradicts my activities over the previous fortnight or said something that seems highly unlikely ? why do you need to see those, do you suspect me of something ? I shown/told you what I do. If you raise a doubt, I have all the evidence to back up my claim and will be happy to produce it then, unless you have a reasonable response why you are raising a doubt I will also be making a complaint. They are always overstepping the mark at the JCP it is called botherability ! personally I do not let them get away with it.
