Just a cautionary caveat re Dougs response.
I have been through this with probation...appeals, ombudsman... the works...and they WILL breach me if I take employment without disclosure. See the 'work as directed' licence condition. Ive been in this situation for 18 months now.
Probation, as we know, are a law unto themselves, at times. I'm off licence in April and they know they can poke it then. Ive had 5 job offers from 6 interviews (senior positions)...but then disclosure.....still on benefits. Enough said, me thinks.
Just beware, that's all.
onwards and upwards
