    I was made redundant so took some time out. I registered with some agencies last month who were not helpful and sending me to interviewees to dodgy employers for temp jobs or trying to pick my brains about the redundancies so they could fill positions so they could make money.

    I have an interview now for a call centre in housing, I know I haven't got the job but I am questioning if I would want to do this being on a phone all day as I have done this before. I feel that the social housing sector is not a good place to work anymore with the public sector cuts and this call centre job would involve shift work. Should I register with some more agencies who might be able to help get me some temp work? I don't know what to do.
