    Looking for a job for a whole year. Prefer full time. Retail would be great, even supermarket or places like currys, homebase etc. What the best way to apply?Should I walk into the places and speak with the manager, ask if there are any opportunities available and hand them my CV? This seems like the best option imo. what do u guys suggest?

    I'd probably say your best bet is to look at some Job sites (e.g. Indeed) and choose and apply to as many jobs that appeal to you. Also sometimes you can be better off looking at specific store sites for jobs. I did that and got offered two jobs at John Lewis and M&S. Also note a lot of bigger stores now show vacancies and take applications online and not in-store so for some (not all) going in won't be as productive.

    Good luck!
