Ian Wolf made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

The Jobseekers required to use Universal Jobmatch (UJM)Press Release of today mentions having to "use" this Jobmatch site. http://www.dwp.gov.uk/newsroom/press-rel...

Please let me have asap copies of information that no Jobseekers Allowance (JA) mandated to use UJM will be required to >

*1* Create a Government Gateway (GG)account?
*2* Create a UJM account?
*3* Create a UJM profile?
*4* Upload their CV to Jobmatch?
*5* Give DWP access to any GG or UJM account?
*6* Use UJM as the only way to provide Jobsearch evidence for JSA entitlement conditionality?

How does the Jobcentre know>

*7* If a JSA claimant has registered on UJM?
*8* A JSA claimant has applied for a job only on UJM, if they have not given access?

Does a mandatory UJM JSA claimant have to:

*9* Apply for a job that is only on UJM and not externally?
*10* Register with every recruitment agency offering a suitable UJM advertised job?

What happens if advisers require use of UJM but the JSA claimant does not accept

*11* Cookies, for user tracking (original or third party)
*12* Java Script, for user tracking
*13* Web bugs/beacons (invisible user tracking images)
and
*14* Flash cookies, also known as "Local Shared Objects", for user tracking

when they use websites?

*15* Does being required to use UJM, only mean being required to anonymously search for jobs on it and not register an account?

Yours faithfully,
Ian Wolf

It is possible that while mandating to UJ is legal, it MAY be toothless - see https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/u...

This website controlled by DWP yes men.

As corrupt as the department we question?
