Is this a first ?

I get on quite well with the bloke who does my fortnightly signing.
Today he looked up a job on the jobcente plus website. He said look
at what they are asking and look at what they are paying. Its crazy
they should pay so little when you see what they want, who would do
that job for what they are paying’ . Yet the job was above the NMW and
he would have been within his rights in insisting I went to it.

He also said ‘there not much on the Jobcentre plus site, I wouldn’t
bother with it myself there are much better jobs elsewhere.

Very true but I bet his managers would not have been too pleased to
hear that!
Anyone else had similar experiences? I don’t don’t to give any clue as
to who he is because I don’t want to give him any sort of hassle with
his bosses.

I use JC+ website, job agencies, charityjob and third sector as my
main sources of job details.
JC+ has far more close to home, the others tend to have more higher
paying jobs. Though an extra £5k a year gross for an extra 2 hours a
day travelling to me is too low.

My experience with the Jobcentre plus is that their job is to bother
the unemployed so much they will be willing to take up any slave job
to avoid having to put up with them.

Given, there are some good people in between the JB plus staff, but as soon
as they are ordered by their manager to bother you they will do so with no
second thoughts, a matter of survival.
