Can't think of companies as such Kenneth, as Iâ€™m in the same rocky boat as you mate. :(
But what I would say is to keep plugging away & to network as much as possible.
BTW Can ya make it tomorrow evening to the forum meeting? As itâ€™ll be the ideal chance to try & get ya foot in the door...
I still have an application form spare if you, or if you know of anyone who still needs one &/or you're fed up of waiting for one to arrive, as I'll send it out to ya first class at no cost :)
I say that there might not be much going 'Up North', as such- but there certainly bits of stuff down South. Just done (on Sat) a nice & steady 2-man day job, for the CP Company that trained me up.
It was 6 well paid hours for a political organization’s AGM in North London. :D
Just need some...
