I recommend Hays:  http://www.hays.com/

I have an interview with them tomorrow morning and most likely I will start work as soon as Monday next week!!! I'm so happy :)

I did not have similar luck with Hays.  Here's the e-mail response I received "The majority of vacancies handled by Hays Office Support do require a minimum of 6 months to 2 years practical experience within designated Human Resources, Sales and Marketing, Purchasing or Office Administration role within the UK. It is unlikely that we would be able to find a suitable post for you."

You have to pay 37 sterling for this job service, but it's really worked for me.

how well did this work out for you?  My wife (she is English) is going back in September and is really concerned about getting a job right away because I will still be here paying our mortgage...I am staying till january when the dogs can come....

If it is worth the money, I would definitely pay the fee....thanks for any information you have.

In London for new media/creative jobs, I've relied on (and found a job through!): http://jobs.chinwag.com/

(Many jobs on it are listed by recruiters, but it's still a great source!)

I've found the Arts Council Website a good place to find job listings.  Unfortunately, most of them seem to be based around London, and not near my little corner of the South West, but I still like it!  If anyone knows of any websites for jobs not near London, I would be interested!
