    Hello Luke, and welcome to Edugeek. (yes this is a copy/paste from Terry's thread, but it's just as relevant!)

    May I suggest you look here: Educational IT Jobs

    As this forum area is not really the best place to ask for or advertise work.


    You've got a good grounding point to start from, more than some of us on here have or started with, so make sure your CV is up to date, and keep an eye on the big job sites, get yourself signed up to them.

    Monster.co.uk
    cwjobs.co.uk
    reed.co.uk
    totaljobs.co.uk

    I've used all of these over the years, and they've all worked well for me, the top 2 especially.

    Since your new to the industry, and probably competing against 100 others in your area who are looking for similar work, then I heavily recommend using your time before you get your job to do something interesting.
    Go join a youth movement as a leader/helper (eg scouting or YHA), join some clubs, or look into other courses that you're interested in; photography, web design, electrics/plumbing, whatever you fancy.

    Because if ALL you have on your CV is a couple of certifications, you are less likely to get a job than someone who has the same ones, but does things with his life outside of work. Employers will look for people who are enthused and energised in life in general, and shows the ability to work with and for people.

    Keep up the good work, and see you around here.

    Luke one thing I can recommend for your CV is the free courses available via various universities over the globe (Munich, Oxford, Cambridge, OU, Harvard, MIT, Cal Sci). I have taken over 60 of these courses, and they have official certification at the end, IE Xperson has taken YCourse at ZUniversity on ADate. Pads out the Record of Achievement (if they are still going) and gives your CV a big boost for no cost!

    My personal favourites have been robotics and artificial intelligence by Cal Sci and Harvard (not the easiest to learn, but great fun).
