Jobseekers on Universal Credit will have to look for jobs outside their chosen field more quickly under government plans to get more people into work.

From Thursday, people will have to look outside their sectors after just four weeks, rather than three months, or face sanctions. Ministers want 500,000 jobseekers in work by the end of June.

Job vacancies hit a record high of 1.22 million between September and November. As part of the jobs push - called "Way to Work" - claimants will have to widen their job search outside their previous occupation or sector after four weeks, rather than three months.

A percentage of their benefits could be cut if they are deemed to not be making reasonable efforts to get a job, or if they turn down a job offer.

I guess it is part of the 'red meat' agenda. Which is about stating aspirations rather than practical policy.

Getting half a million off the dole in less than 6 months is a fantasy.

unemployment is at levels not seen since the 70s, however, there are about 1 million fewer people in the labour market then pre pandemic. the government needs a plan to get people to participate but completely misunderstands the problem, as ever.

Too many unfilled jobs, and too many unemployed people at the same time usually means one thing.

Unemployment benefits are too generous.

Jobseekers on Universal Credit will have to look for jobs outside their chosen field more quickly or face sanctions under new government plans.

From Thursday, people will have to look outside their sectors after just four weeks, rather than three months.

If they fail to make "reasonable efforts" to get a job, or turn down employment, they could see their benefit payment reduced.

Employers in almost all sectors are complaining of labour shortages that show little sign of easing, with more than a third of businesses surveyed by the Recruitment & Employment Confederation saying that finding staff was one of their biggest challenges.

The latest official data showed that vacancies rose to a record high of 1.247m in the three months to December, equivalent to four in every 100 employee jobs in the economy, with a quarter of a million posts unfilled in health and social care alone.

But this is not because there are large numbers of unemployed people struggling to find a suitable post.


The shortages have instead been driven by surging demand for staff in some sectors, lower inward migration, and a significant increase in the number of people who have dropped out of the workforce — whether for health reasons, to retire earlier, or to pursue their education.

perhaps they could all go and work for the NHS given the potential upcoming vacancies

If people are loath to take jobs when they are available, then they don't need to work in order to live.

That they're doing quite nicely on benefits seems the only conclusion.

As I said a zero hour contract where you have to be available for a vast number of hours over a week is impossible if you have kids

the only conclusion is that youve taken a complicated subject and boiled it down to all unemployed dont want to work as they are having a cushy life on benefits which is ridiculous

so all the vacancies in the country are perfectly ,matched to all the pockets of unemployment - ffs vacancies exist in parts of the country because poeple cant afford to live, work or travel there.
