At English Minds, we know that there’s more to an effective job search than just sending out CVs. We help our students prepare for employment in London and the rest of the UK by providing recruitment advice to those who have become sufficiently proficient in English to begin a job search.
Our recruitment advice services include:
Job Searching Resources
There are several resources for English learners seeking employment in the UK. Job opportunities appear online, in newspapers, and at Job Centre offices and employment agencies.
Below is a list of websites that either specialise in or include employment opportunities.
National newspapers and local newspapers throughout the UK all contain job adverts. The Times and the Guardian regularly post new employment opportunities, with different industries featured on different days.
Job Centre Plus
Job Centre Plus is part of the UK government’s Department for Work and Pensions. Jobs and career opportunities are posted on its website and at all Job Centre offices. Those who visit their closest office can search a database and complete application forms with the assistance of an on-site advisor.
There are a lot of employment agencies in London, so it is important to find one that specialises in the type of work the applicant is looking for. Review ads in industry publications and find out which agencies advertise in them. Then contact the best prospects and request an appointment to register.
Job vacancies in the UK get thousands of applications. It is a competitive environment, but the recruitment advisors at English Minds will assist students with CV and interview preparation, recommend the best resources for a person’s chosen field, and give them the tools they need to find the job they want.
