    I signed up to Universal JObmatch, but then do I have to log-on and apply for jobs everyday?

    It's being replaced with the 'Find a job service'.
    I remember when they first had the terminals in the JCs. The first version was superb as it allowed job-seekers to search based on such things as accessibilty via public transport.

    Then they updated the system and the down hill plunge into what became UJM started.

    The 'Find a Job' website (replacing UJM)
    When will we get directed to an actual domain or webaddress though?

    My son is on JSA and he has all the info on the new service.
    It is being run by Adzuna and differs from UJM in that the advisors cannot (at the moment) access your account.
    You cannot use it to keep a record of your jobsearch activities either (at the moment).


    So what the DWP has done is to replace a website which is quite useful with one that is no use whatsoever.

The ability to record your job search is one of the functions that's gone in the change from UJM to FAJ, and it was just about the only useful function on UJM. On the home page it states 'use it to discuss your work search activity if you're claiming Universal Credit or Jobseeker's Allowance, but I can find nowhere to actually do so!
