Your Local Job Centre Plus
Only as far away as your internet connection!
Job Centre Plus is where to go to claim for most benefits (especially if you need to claim Jobseekers Allowance), and to find out about job vacancies. Most students won’t be eligible for benefits if they’re unemployed, but some will (especially parents and disabled students). If you’re not sure if you’re able to claim benefits, contact your Students’ Union Adviser for a confidential discussion.
