When I came to the end of term I planned to try and find summer work until I started getting more supply work in the Autumn term. However on the last day of term a school I worked out offered me a terms work from tomorrow until christmas, probably longer. So I decided not to find a summer job as i'd need my summer holiday and rest and recovery etc. I was unsure about signing on and what the rules would be (i've never signed on before). I was able to and have recieved JSA over the holiday (which is better than nothing). Even though I had a job to go to I was still able to receive the benefit but I still had to be actively seeking work (pretty much just had to play the game and apply for jobs 3 times each week). I recently told them I now have a job starting Monday and they have paid my first months trian travel and also paid for a suit for me from Burtons. So I really would recommend signing on if you're out of work.
