Congratulations on your new job!
If you are on a programme with us or signed up with your local Jobcentre Plus, please do let us know straightaway that you’ve found work.
Moving from benefits to work
If you have been on benefits and moving to being a paid employee, there is support available from your local Jobcentre Plus. They can advise on how your benefits may change and if you are entitled grants. Starting work doesn’t mean all of your benefits have to stop but there may be changes. It’s a good idea to check before you begin your new job.
Your new employer
You'll need to agree on your pay, hours and working conditions.
Try and find out:
- What day and time you start, and the hours of work
- Where to go and who to ask for on the first day
- What you need to take (like tax and bank account numbers)
- How and when wages are paid.
Your employer has some legal requirements they need to meet. This includes minimum terms and conditions around your income, sick and holiday pay.
