Looking for a job in London?

Given the difficult economic circumstances, you may be having a hard time looking for a job in London. However, it's not all doom and gloom - although the job market is more crowded than ever, there are still plenty of opportunities available for those who know where to look. Here are a few tips to get you started...

  • Where you find London jobs largely depends on the type of jobs you are applying for. High paying professional jobs may be advertised extensively while casual jobs may be advertised in shop windows. So we'll summarise the main sources of employment and you can utilise the ones that are most relevant to you.
  • Job search websites, like Guardian Jobs, Job is Job, Total Jobs, Monster and Reed are a great starting point. Almost all large employers will advertise vacancies online. Job is Job is particularly useful because it amalgamates the job ads from other websites to give more comprehensive listings.
  • Many people snub recruitment agencies because they take a cut of your salary - but they are one of the best ways to find the jobs that aren't advertised publicly, and they'll be happy yo give you help with your application. Money well spent, in our opinion.
  • The local media (job pull-outs in newspapers, classifieds and local radio bulletins) remain a good source for information on vacancies in London. Smaller employers or employers who want casual or part time staff often stick with these low cost advertising options.
  • Send your CV in to companies that you're interested in working for. Just don't forget to customise the cover letter for each company.
