Must I inform each time I start another job even if it matches the PW specifications?

Hi,

I'm on ESA support group and have just started back in work. I have submitted the PW form. 
My question is, must I inform each time I start another job even if it matches the PW specifications?

    Ideally you should keep them informed. Do make sure you work less than 16 hours per week and earn no more than £152/week after deductions.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Before you start any work, whether paid or unpaid, you should fill in a PW1 form. Post it to the address at the top of any ESA letters we have sent you. 


    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    What happens if the work you do contradicts the reason you’re claiming?

    When you have a re-assessment it can go against you.

    Bluefox was just asking a question and bg844 was answering their question, that’s why they quoted their comment.
