leaving work.

i had a job in a callcentre there for about 5 months, split up wi my partner and moved back in with my ma in my home city, i had to resign from my job. as far as im aware you cant claim jsa if you voluntarily leave employment, i had no choice to leave the job they couldnt transfer me as they werent hiring in my hometown.
 
i couldnt have stayed where my job was as i didnt have anywhere to go and wanted to be back with my family anyway. i was only picking up 170 a week in it and after rent it doesnt leave me with very much. traveling back n forth wasnt an option either as i ofter worked well after any buses,trains kept running. as well as the cost.
 
anyone know anyways round this, im looking for work back home now and dont intend to be out of work for long but is there anyways round this so i can get my 50 quid a week dole in the meantime?

Not sure what the stance on this would be but certainly worth giving them a call. 
 
Problem is its hard to get benefits when you want to work, but lets not open that can of worms!

It isnt black and white that you cant get jsa if yo left work voluntarily.  My last job i worked at i ended in april this year as i was sh1te at it.  It was call centre and i was always getting dragged into the office to be told how bad i was.  It came to around 6 months in and another b0ll0king where i said that we should agree that i couldnt do it.  Went the job centre and told them my story and they gave me JSA.  My sister did however relocate 150 miles up the country and wasnt entitled to anything as she left her job back home voluntarily.  
 
Yeah id phone the jobcentre..

The most important thing about goals is having one.

Basically the same story as me....I was w*nk on the phones, didnt have the patience at all so agreed to jump before I was pushed. Spoke to the job centre and they put me on JSA.  Its all about personal circumstances etc....give them a bell or pop in mate.

dont want to tell them my name in case they put it in writing and then refuse me, id rather get a concrete defence. if i tell them my gf threw me out and i was homeless had no mates or family and had to return home do you think i'd be entitled to it? thats basically whats happened like.

Just ring them mate. If you don't give them your name you can't get JSA anyway so you will have to..
 
No good someone giving you their story on here, you can hardly phone the Job Centre and say "What? You ain't giving me it? Well musclesman2k11 got it, he told me on muscletalk!!"

I left my last job about 6 years ago because they were a shower of pricks and i couldn't stand most of them. I went to the job centre and recieved JSA no problem, at that point it was only £44 a week (yeah, thanks). Go down and give them the hard story and should be ok. Or alternatively tell them you left before you got fired, made some mutual agreement, so it wouldn't affect future oppertunities. Good luck man.

was talking to the HR girl in work and she says she'd reckon they would phone her to ask what happened, never met the girl before so shes not going to lie for me. will just have to bite the bullet and go down there, tell them personal difficulties no friends/family up there etc.

it isnt like you left your job and stayed put. you were in a position where moving home was your best option and as work couldnt accomodate you, you had to quit. individual circumstances and all that

Im contacted on the regular from numerous job centres across the country - we employee upto 5,000 heads at some points during the year and the work can be quite tough so voluntary attrition is quite high.
 
I have never actually spoken to a contact in any of the job centres about any employee they always make contact via post and a standard form - any HR professional worth their salt would put it down as "voluntary" and leave it at that; especially given the circumstances you left under.
 
The only time a job centre employee has rung me up has been to investigate fraud.
 
As an aside ive met roughly 50-70 reps over the past year from JC offices up and down the country and can count on one hand how many of them are capable of finding other people work - no wonder the labour market is where it is.

When friendships become nothing more than a ledger of profit and loss, then you truly are alone.
