You know the bit where you have to state the bracket your occupation falls in?
I really think it would be worth reviewing it.
For example, a dustman is not a casual position. Perhaps it is unskilled, but dustmen usually have a council or Subcontracted contract of employment.
Also bracketing schoolteacher with managerial and supervisory is odd. Schoolteachers often don’t have any managerial role. They are however trained for the job. I think the brackets lump people together in an unclear way and i’m never sure what box to tick because I juggle a few different part time roles.

It seems that the information you are getting from this question must be inaccurate and unclear.

I agree the occupation lists are a bit odd. Several are very odd

Oh well if it’s not just me,Perhaps I will report my post then.
It would be interesting to hear the rationale behind the groupings, at the least.

Hey. I’m new to this site but Just would like some advice about my boyfriend.

We’ve been together nearly 2 years and have a house (private rented) and have just had a baby together who is 10 weeks old. I got fired from my old job when I was 3 months pregnant due to sickness (I’ve been through it with Acas about unfair dismissal etc) but anyway the only income I have at the moment is my maternity pay which isn’t enough to cover bills and my car. My boyfriend was fired from his job 2 weeks before our son was born, he was fired unfairly as they took a new starters word over his without asking him. However he has not been able to hold a job down for more then 8 months. He still hasn’t got a new job yet. I have pushed for him to apply and get a job but he doesn’t seem motivated in the slightest. Now our sons born he is using him as an excuse saying he wants to spend time with him and it’s not fair that I get to stay home with him While he should have to work. I’ve told him we could survive off him just having a part time job so he can still spend time with our son. But he doesn’t seem interested. He’s applied for a few jobs and has had 1 or 2 interviews but it never goes further then that. This month our rent bounced, the landlord has said she’ll accept a late payment this month but won’t next month. And the way finances are going we won’t have the rent next month. I’m anxious about our financial situation But I don’t know what else I can do.

I’ve told him that he needs to get a job and left Suttle hints here and there. But he just gets annoyed and says he’s doing all he can but he can’t find any work. I think he’s applying but only half heartedly as he doesn’t seem to have any work ethic about him.

I’m worried that if we get any further into financial difficulty that I’ll have to pack my maternity in and go to work full time. And I know I will resent him for that.
I love him so much and he is a great dad to our son. And he’s a loving boyfriend who always makes me laugh. And above all that I really don’t want to spilt our family up. But I’m starting to get fed up. What else can I do to try motivate him? Or is it just a dead end?
