Look at the search for employment as a project, and give yourself a list of tasks for each week; e.g. look in newspaper, go to the job centre, and combine them with some of the suggestions below. 
The most important thing you can do is to speak to someone and be honest with yourself about what you can do and what you are willing to do. If you have any skills gaps, get some training, quickly and ensure that it is the type of training that local employers are looking for.
 
Sometimes it can be a number of weeks, or even months, before you find your ideal job, but the more effort put you into looking, the better your chance of finding one.

To find the nearest Jobcentre Plus office to where you live, ring 0845 6060234 or visit Job Centre Plus's website
 
2. Sit down with a good friend, collegue or a careers advisor and explore what you want to do, what you are willing to do and list the types of job that you are not happy to do. List your skills, experinece and qualifications and compare them against what employers are looking for. If there is a gap, do some additonal training, hopefully with a training company that can enrol you right away. Time is an issue when you are unemployed, don’t wait until the next term starts, do something now.
 
3. Read your Local and National newspaper vacancies pages.
 
4. Register with as many job websites as possible. Some of these job sites will actually do some of the searching for you. Type a good CV listing all of your experience, skills and qualifications and get it uploaded.
 
5. Register with employment agencies. Check with the agency if they will give you a contract of employment (e.g. Blue Arrow will give you a contract of employment), this will give you more employee rights. If the agency does not, then this is still a job and it will give you an income.
 
6. Ask relatives or friends to let you know if they hear of any vacancies.
 
7. Consider volunteering work to be trained in the work environment and get qualifications and look at the jobseekers advice pages of direct.gov.uk. If you volunteer, you may be able to gain access to accredited training and further qualifications.

8. Look at local newsagents shop windows.
9. Talk to your adviser about courses to help you get more qualifications.
 

Good luck in finding that dream job.
