    Am looking to see how does everyone look for work as am starting a smallish inn in the next few weeks,

    Other than recruitment agencies where would you normally look for work? Trying to find out where younger people normally look for work.

    Am trying to avoid using any agencies.... so am looking to see where would be the best venue to place notices.

    Thanks..

    P/S : If you want to share something but don't want to make it public... feel free to PM me.

    Can't really put it at a pub as it would look as if I'm trying to pinch their staff. The nearest uni is almost 30 miles away and the location isn't really a student friendly area.

    Only really the jobcentreplus website, the likes of gumtree tends to act a lot of 'earn £2000 a week working from home!' kind of thing.

    I use gumtree a lot actually, if you know how to use the search function it's great for finding jobs and I find the layout very clear compared to other sites. It's also free to post ads so there's no harm in using them.

    Start with jobcentreplus website to see who actually is hiring, then tailor my searching down to local shops with websites that may or may not be hiring (usually not) and then cold calling where the staff give you eyes like daggers for bothering them during their working day.

    Finally it ends with me blaming the government. Rinse and repeat every week. Should be thankful I'm at least in education I suppose but man some money would be nice!

    Keep it coming.

    I've somewhat resisted putting an ad on gumtree as it attracts a lot of foreigners who may require a visa to work in the UK.

    Looking to hire people for at least 3-4 years so someone requiring a visa isn't going to cut it.

    Cold calling? Do you call or actually go to the shops?

    I go directly to the shop, normally talk to a member of staff, ask if the managers in and more often than not just the staff are in so I hand in a CV and hear back sometimes from that.
