A few month ago I was referred to Ingeus by JCP/DWP thinking it may help my look for work. Stupidly after previous problems from agencies over the years I said yes.


I have been a volunteer radio presenter for 5 years which the JC had no issues with as long as I kept looking for paid work. My original 'coach', who was understanding to this had been replaced by a lady who despite being friendly had bombarded me with texts and annoyingly calls which go past the every 2 weeks she claimed.


The days keep changing and although I have requested she not call on Monday or Tuesday mornings due to my radio show, she has completely ignored my request. On top of this, companies she seems to think I may be interested in and have given permission to get my information are also calling me between these awkward times due to my broadcasting. This is being spoilt because I am unable to concentrate on the show. I cannot turn my phone off because I use it for research on the radio show.


I am getting the stress I got years back from companies like Learndirect, who got disbanded due to their own problems caused to clients. Apparently if I wanted to work at home for DWP taking complaints (er no) I'd have to travel and lump a huge suitcase of their equipment.home. I am sleeping badly and having to turn my phone off at home just to be able to eat a meal in peace.


I am certainly thinking of quitting Ingeus because of these issues. I know others have had problems to from reading closed forums on here. I liken it to be stuck in a circle surrounded by DWP, Ingeus and what ever company calls me next. 😬

Lodge a formal complaint about the work coach, she sounds like one of the bitter & twisted ones.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Now I'm getting calls from their Birmingham and Liverpool branches, asking if I want to ask something. NOOOOOOOOOOO I have my adviser for this. These companies, once you are on their list, you can't shake them off.
