The DWP’s Job Search website is awash with Catalogue Distributing Jobs, as out of the 17 Pages of results for a search of Retail & Warehousing jobs about 5-6 of the pages were for Catalogue Distributing Jobs.
Many of the Catalogue Distributing Jobs say that they’re Full-time despite being commission only, so no guaranteed income and as the Jobs are advertised as Full-time there is no way to claim any Job Seekers Allowance meaning that there is no way that you can survive while doing this job that amounts to a Zero Hour Contract with no guaranteed income.
This listing for a Catalogue Distributing Job Vacancy states that there is excellent Commission & Bonuses, but as there is no Salary stated it means that this Full-time vacancy is reliant on building up a good client base and getting consistent sales if you’re going to make any money. Also this particular vacancy is advertised as flexitime it is basically a Part-time vacancy that the employer is telling the DWP that it’s Full-time.
These types of job are really impossible for anyone to sustain this type of job as a Full-time job as the only means of income, so ether needs to be done as a secondary job to top up your income.
These kind of Job vacancies shouldn’t be allowed to be advertised by the DWP as they aren’t a guaranteed form of income and will ether leave people on Job Seekers Allowance if the employer has advertised the vacancy as a Part-time one, or struggaling to survive if the employer has advertised the vacancy as a Full-time one.
