A lot of job vacancies aren't full time which makes the REAL figures even worse. Many companies with lower paid staff prefer the flexibility of having many part-time workers instead of fewer full-time. It makes covering absence a lot easier as well as reducing wage bills when work is slack.

Depends on a lot of things, there are members here who will testify that they got offered full-time employment by McDownAndDirty but then were only getting 12 hours or less a week.

If you want a full-time job, part-time is unsatisfactory. With the job situation like it is, trying to fit in interviews and hold down the part-time can be extremely difficult.

Then there are numerous problems with the benefit system trying to get them to accommodate your part-time work without you ending up worse off financially.

Like not getting benefits is properly their biggest along with such statements as there's lots of policies but we can't possibly know them all, how professional

If you aren't entitled to benefits there is usually a reason for this, sometimes its just not knowing the system, might be worth a chat with citizens advice. Policies cannot over-rule the law, neither can guidelines, internal handbooks etc. The law states what you are ENTITLED to, entitlement meaning that they are under an obligation to provide it not you having to scrounge it off them.

If you have been made unemployed in the year before last April, you could do a tax return for last year and get your income tax rebate if you are short of money, it comes through quite quick sometimes.

I can give much credence to that! I have been trying for AGES to get a permanent job in the Wirral. I have become so fed up with the place that I often felt like leaving it for good.

Problem is, where to go!

I just read the link & unless im reading it wrong Cllr phil Davies wants to get his head out of his arce mad - Job centre statistics sre distorted with many jobs advertised up to 16 times a day ( see pics showing the same part time job advertised again & again)
Also the other jobs advertised at the joke centre are just agencies looking for people to put on there books to sell your details to people ringing to ask if you want to claim industrial injury compo from ex employers! Job probably didnt exist. mad
