All new JSA and Universal Credit claimants to be automatically signed on to Universal Jobmatch

Each of the four job centres involved in the early roll-out will be testing a range of activities to prepare for Universal Credit from April including:

  • trialling the new claimant commitment
  • ensuring all new JSA and UC claimants are automatically signed on to Universal Jobmatch
  • introducing a new fortnightly job search trial to make sure people are meeting the terms of their claimant commitment
  • and installing more internet access points to help people make their claims.

Notes: Automatic Universal Jobmatch registration and use likely to be achieved by all new online JSA and UC claims being linked to creation of a Government Gateway account and this account is then used to create a Jobmatch profile and upload a public CV.
