Jobcentre Plus

I had my interview at Jobcentre Plus today, as a new claimant for JSA. They're desperately far behind on interviews for new claimants, and in order to address this the head office at Dundee are booking people into interviews faster than the local office is equipped to handle them. This means that not only is it two weeks into my claim before I'm interviewed, but said interview is nearly two hours behind the advertised time.

Having said which, when I finally got to see an advisor (Mr Swift, tee hee) he had all my details to hand and the process from that point on went relatively smoothly.

Customers are required to switch their mobile phones off while in the Jobcentre Plus office, so if a client rings me to offer me work at any point during the couple of hours in the middle of the day on alternate Mondays from now until I find a job, I won't be able to take the call.

Oh, yes. GIP.
