Leazes1986 Posted January 20, 2009 Share Posted January 20, 2009 I'm fucking desperate for a job. I've been out of work for a month now and have been receiving Jobseekers Allowance. I live at my mams house at the minute and my girlfriend also lives here which means its a joint claim. The problem is though, shes at college and she's just got a job working 22 hours a week which means that my claim might be getting closed. Apparently its the law that you get around £95 a week as a couple, so with her now getting around £130 it might stop my benefits. I find it fucking stupid that i might not be able to claim any money at all just because shes getting £130 a week. Its only a part time job and shes not exactly able to support me with it, i mean it wouldnt be worth her working there if she was paying my way and her way. This means i could have no income after Friday. I'm bloody desperate for a job and im looking and applying for a few but i'm not having any luck so far. It goes without saying that im going to be on the bones of my arse if all of my money gets stopped. I've got to come up with 2 weeks holiday spending money and season ticket money, plus a lot of money for a few other things at various points over the next 8 months. I'll work in a Call Centre or anything, im just in desperate need of 20-40 hours work a week. Is anywhere recruiting though where you don't need experience? Since i left school i've been a labourer, done a full time ICT course at college, and worked part time as a Catering Assistant. It seems 95% of the jobs advertised out there you need experience. Jobs i know i could do but the lack of experience is buggering me. So down to my original question. Are there any bloody jobs out there which don't require much experience? Call Centre, anything! Admin would be my preferred choice like but im not being fussy at the minute. I have had no luck with HMRC so thats out of the question. HELP!
