Dumbest sanction

My Jobcentre advisor couldn’t see my information in the Universal Jobmatch website. I am sanctioned.

Is there any jobcentre office in the UK where one can in fact receive advice and help getting a job? Because if all it is about now is breaking the people who seek their help making them feel like parasites, maybe it should be called something else: Un-dignification Centre, for example. And this is done to those of us who follow the instructions and do not complain. If you ask nicely, if you are patient, if you tell the truth, they will drop all they can on your head.

The photo shows how the box that authorises the Jobcentre to see my account was always ticked.
