We look at some of the best approaches for getting a job in London

While many people are still struggling on with the major online job sites and having no luck whatsoever due to the huge levels of competition found in the current job market, there are an ever increasing number of people out there who are starting to take alternative approaches to getting a job in London.

There are a number of different avenues you can take that don't involve sitting in front of a computer for hours on end getting more and more frustrated at the lack of responses that your applications are getting, and we're going to take a look at some of the most popular ones today.

Firstly, taking a look at where the jobs are to be found in London always help. Since it's the capital city of England, it's got a huge retail sector, so that's worth looking at. With a high level of staff turnover, it is usually quite easy to find a job in retail with a little perseverance. We do recommend, however, that you call into stores in person rather than searching for online vacancy postings. You'll have a much better chance of success this way, since the majority of retail positions are never posted online. You can expect to earn between £5.93 and £6.00 per hour working in this field.

Alternatively you could leverage your professional experience with a recruitment agency in order to have them find a job for you. Not only does this take some of the pressure off your shoulders, but it also allows you to take advantage of the agency's excellent contacts. We recommend trying the following agencies to start with;

  • BJ Crawford Recruitment, 65-69 Pottery Lane
  • Quest Search and Selection, 9 Argylle Street
  • Reed Recruitment, 17 South Molton Street
  • Morgan West Recruitment, Rivington House, 82 Great Eastern Street
