How to get a job without unemployment benefits
What if you were unemployed for two years?
You’ve got two choices: you can take out a loan or you can apply for unemployment benefits.
But you don’t have to pay a cent.
That’s the idea behind the ‘Work For Free’ scheme, which launched in the UK in August and has since expanded to several other countries.
It was created by a team of researchers from the University of Leeds and the University for Research in Society and Health (UKRS), and is being piloted in the Netherlands.
The scheme aims to give unemployed people who need help with their daily lives a boost by providing them with some financial help to cover costs, while giving them access to other forms of employment.
It aims to cut the number of unemployed people from 1.4 million in 2020 to 800,000 by 2022.
“It’s a really interesting experiment in how the market can work,” said researcher Peter van den Broek, who led the project with colleagues from the Netherlands, Australia and Germany.
“There are people who are on the unemployment waiting list and there are people working part-time for free, so we wanted to make sure that those people had the same support as everyone else.”
The scheme will give people who have lost their jobs the chance to apply for the work-free card and start receiving the benefit in two months.
It also offers people a chance to get job-ready and gain valuable skills to get back to work.
The work-for-free cards are meant to be a temporary solution, with the aim of providing people with the necessary skills to be back on the job within a month of receiving them.
The money is meant to help unemployed people pay for childcare, food and other essentials, and to help with the cost of living.
This will help the unemployed to start paying their bills.
If the scheme proves successful, it will also offer some form of support for people who choose to apply.
“The work-from-home model has been proven to be very effective,” van den Bros, from the UKRS, said.
The scheme is not free to apply, however, and participants are required to contribute to a monthly allowance that can be used to cover accommodation and food expenses. “
If we can do something similar, why not give people the chance of doing the same thing and making sure that they have the skills to start getting back to a job?”

“This scheme is meant for people in full-time work, but it could be applied to anyone,” van Den Broek said.
The first trial was conducted in the summer and participants received the cards between June and August, before the scheme expanded to include participants from the rest of the EU.
The team also used the scheme in Australia and the Netherlands before expanding it to include Germany.
The next phase of the scheme is expected to be launched in January 2022, with more trials planned.
