It seems that even being out of work is very expensive. I have just been totting up the cost of signing on with agencies, and the found the conclusion quite staggering. Each agency wants a CRB, so , for me, since last year, that works out at over £680. Just recently, as I thought I would never get any work, the telphone has started to ring in the morning. However, I am told that the school will require me to take with me two pieces of photo ID, a CV and a CRB less than 3 months old; and all this for CS job, too.
