Or you could make new requests for 1 and 2 and others individually. However, the DWP can aggregate similar requests over a short time and decline to disclose info as doing so may well cost more than £600. Costs guidance https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...

On item 5 the DWP guidance suggests all jobsites are given parity and a Jobcentre may mandate any Jobsite and not just Find A Job https://mrfrankzola.wordpress.com/2018/0...

“Use of the Find a job website is not compulsory for claimants of Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) or Universal Credit (UC)”
