I'm looking for new job but worried that wont be able to help kids remote learning if one of their bubbles shut down. Right now I'm doing Avon with my eldest but missed 2 Wednesday with remote learning and didn't do as well this month

I work for boots and am currently on maternity leave, but I’ve been told that all sales assistants are being made redundant, we just don’t know when.. I’m hoping I still get maternity pay because I’ll be screwed otherwise..

I am so sorry that your brother-in-law is going through redundancy. We know from experience that it is not a good age to be trying to find a new job. Mr Tumblespots had terrible trouble. The sad fact is that the government say you need to work until you are at least 66/67 (this is increasing steadily all the time) but employers are reluctant to employ anyone under 50! Some disparity there....

The one plus point I can offer is that he can have his suit cleaned for free at Timpsons (please follow the link to see the details) https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/freebies/free-drycleaning-unemployed-going-interview-timpson-3425

I wish your brother-in-law well in his search. 👍 🐞

It's really sad, there are so many people looking for work at the same time plus it changed everyday which areas are in lockdown

You may be interested in the Government job website which collects together lots of vacancies:

Also, many people also don't know about Google Jobs, which also collects lots of opportunities. Here's an example for searching "Tesco Jobs"
