So, I finished my degree in Computer Science with a 2:1 in May/June time. I started towards doing a PGCE, but I'm starting to realize it isn't for me and am in the process of withdrawing from the course. Now I'm looking for work in something like IT support, market research, admin or some kind of office work, just to help me get by and give me more experience.

Despite my decent grade in my degree, I'm not a huge fan of programming and I'm not really compotent at it. So I'm trying to get ideas on what I can use my Computer Science degree for that isn't strictly programming or software development. Something where I can work up from a junior position if I wish to. Currently spending my time searching through LinkedIn and Indeed for interesting positions but the one's I am interested in feel like they're way out of reach, due to my lack of experience. Just looking for thoughts on what I should try next and what anyone in a similar situation previously did.

2:1 is more than ‘decent’ btw. You should be proud of yourself.
