JSA is actually pretty good, on paper - the trouble is IMO, a) it often isn't enforced as thoroughly as it could be, for various reasons and b) many people who should be on JSA, are in fact on other more cushy benefits which pay more and/or have no requirement to look for work.

I'd also be interested to see if that were true, I am not sure whether it would be beneficial to have McD on a CV or whether it would be a hindrance. Voluntary work in IT + benefits might be much more beneficial as it would allow networking in your chosen field.
Voluntary work wouldn't pay his mortgage though.

McDonalds is a metaphor really. I doubt I'd meet their dress code policy by an Apple Store, call centre or something like that.

Also, if I was looking at a CV and saw someone had worked in a field for over 10 years, lost a job and carried on working ASAP whilst they looked for something better, I wouldn't hold that against them. Quite the opposite.

It'd depend on the circumstances I guess. If I was sacked, I'd do the above. If it was redundancy, I guess I could live up to 9 months or so. I'd obviously not get benefits but I'd look at doing further training in that situation. Not that many IT places want that now adays.

Do you get housing benefits towards mortgages, or do you just have to sell up and rent?

Good point although there might be other solutions such as taking a lodger were the flat large enough, or asking for a temporary mortgage suspension etc. etc.

Not sure quite how it works but I believe you can get your mortgage interest paid (not the principal), but not straight away.
