London Jobs: How to Find Work in the Capital

Finding a new career path in any given location can feel like a challenge, but perhaps even more so in London. A city that is bursting with young professionals and those seeking the latest positions at prestigious companies, London is a hub of opportunity. Whether you are a university graduate or hoping to change career, finding a job in London is an exciting prospect.

The first challenge is knowing where to look to find your perfect role, with the sheer scale of the job market being enough to make your head spin. At Attic Recruitment, we have years of experience in helping candidates across London settle in to the right career with the right employer.

With that in mind, here are some tips to help put you in the best position to become successful in securing a job in London.

Decide what type of job you are looking for

The first step is knowing what type of job you’re hoping to get. If you’re just starting out, temporary jobs in London could be a great way to start building on your experience. From covering for maternity to assisting with long projects, there are always a huge host of companies looking for temporary support.

If you’re looking for something more permanent, consider your existing skills and identify what type of role you would have the best chance of securing before applying.

Standing out from the crowd

You’re not the only one seeking a perfect role in the capital. It’s important to find ways to stand out against your fellow candidates, in the hope of being noticed by your potential employer. For some roles there can be dozens of applicants, especially in industries such as secretarial, PA and HR. At Attic we take the time to understand what you’re looking for and what your credentials are, to help progress your career successfully.

It can be helpful to take every step to upskill yourself and build on your experience, whether through free courses or other methods to enhance your industry knowledge. Anything additional you can add to your CV or experience you can talk about in an interview can be very valuable.
