Really, you should wait until the beginning of January or at least after Christmas. Managers, Personnel and other staff members are up to their eyes in organization this time of the year.
Do you really want you CV/Application to be discarded? Or mislaid? Somebody may find it very tactless that you should give in an application this time of year and may not want to hire you for that.
If you really want to get a good job don't ruin you're chances unless your sure somebody is desperate for someone to be hired.
Yeah, do it after chrsitmas, they may even be more likely to want to hire people after the chrsitmas temps have gone.
personally I havent tried bluewater, but ive tried quite a few places round here (dartford) and most places are jobless at the moment! Ive tried supermarkets mainly..
wait till the end of jan at the earliest coz as someone mentioned earlier they are more likely to want staff after the xmas temps have gone. Also, if you ask about it now, they will say that they wont need anyone bcoz of the xmas temps and eventhough you wont be starting till feb, they wont know this far in advance if they are gonna have any vacancies in feb.
But seeing as bluewater is pretty big, there will be a good chance of a job and hopefully plenty of choices
