Have you considered using jobsites like Indeed and simply applying for them?

Hi I’ve been using Indeed yet the responses haven’t been encouraging at the same time would you say this time of job is demanding or can easily be obtained…

Does your CV list all the skills they are requesting? Also, could you ring around and offer a week's work for free as a trial and at the least you will have some work experience.
You could try tech consultancies like FDM group (require 2.2 minimimum which means you qualify), kubrick group, infosys, sparta global etc...

Essentially they train people up and put them into companies. I know there are some people who say avoid them but there are also some people who now work for great companies after being placed. Its for you to do your research and decide.


Edit: I see you have been posting the same question many times over the past few months. I understand that finding a graduate job is hard but you just have to keep applying. It is a numbers game.
