    Well now you have A levels, there are loads of doors open to you.

    What sort of area are you intrested in working in? Travel? Retail? Banking?
    And what were you A levels in?
    Are you looking for part time full time?
    Are you going to be studying too?
    - It might help people come up with some appropriate suggestions.

    so instead of doing all the obvious things
    you came to waste more time on the internets, offering rep (in your case worthless) and asking at 3.30 am for advice on a forum...
    wow

    Best way to get a job is to go on yell.com type in "pub" your local area and just call until someone says "yeah we have jobs" a pub is a decent place to work until you find something that really interests you....helps your social skills as well.

    Depends what you fancy doing. My mate worked in a betting shop for a year and absolutely loved it, as he's a gambler himself.

    When I started to look for a job two years ago I realised that most jobs go into roughly three categories.

    Store work

    Restaurant work

    Pub work.

    I narrowed it down with personal pros and cons (i.e would love to learn to waitress, but am complete and utter clutz, so no restaurant work) to working in my local Cooperative. Rubbish work, but it still pays.

    Eventually you will figure what you really want to do (my brother took 4 years between college and uni because he didn't know what to do, but then kinda fell into Snowboarding professionally, but needed a Buisness Degree to get any higher up the ladder). Meanwhile theres a huge amount of stuff.

    My bf is a lifeguard, fairly easy to train, usually about 100 pounds (i think) for a six day course and monthly updates but the pay is immense and the hours are extremely flexable.

    Balfour Beatty were offering opportunities in civil engineering a few months back for A-level students.

    So this is just a gap year job? Anymore information on what you're doing post-gap year. Any interests at all. It is quite vague to say 'looking for a job'. Tell us what you're interested in, do a bit of research and we'll be happy to help point you in the right direction.
