I've got an interview next Friday at one of the most well known organisations in the world, and its based in London.

Congratulations mate. Who's it with? Trotters Independent Trading?

Not telling. I REALLY WANT this job, so am keeping schtum as it is still open to applicants.

Yeah. Cos not telling anyone else will really make a difference as to whether you get the job or not. :lol:

Great logic.  :laugh:

It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals

Thanks for the info everyone, I reckon I'll be looking to pay about £500 a month to share with other people and about £1,200 for a season ticket possibly. Reckon I'll just look in the Greenwich area as it does not seem too bad either.

nah, they just make up the stats and pretend that the surveys took place... ;p

there's usually hundreds of applications for jobs that're advertised externally at the BBC. can also take a few months for recruitment to get back to the people as well.

Ok, well I'm digging this thread out because I don't see any others. It's just hit me today that, if I find a London job, it'll be a quick turnaround and I need to be looking at where to live.

Firstly, which areas are the cheaper, safer ones? Secondly, I wouldn't have a clue where to start with letting agents. Which sites are good for London house shares? Google can only get you so far :lol:

Cheers!

Spareroom.co.uk for the house shares. It's been ages since I looked though, might be others now.

I don't think there are any unsafe areas really, there are more or less 'nice' ones though.

If you want the real central London/city experience then there are certain places, or if you're prepared to go suburban you could go further out and spend less.

Nearly 9,500 people die each year in London because of air pollution – study
Counting impact of toxic gas NO2 for the first time suggests more than twice as many people as previously thought die prematurely from pollution in UK capital

This. It has a mixture of everything really. I never used to like the place and although when I'm working there I don't enjoy it, I do like visiting my sister there and spending a weekend there every now and then. I could even see myself living there one day.

The people may or may not be rude but it's where all the jobs are. It's a great city and I just think it's something everyone should try, at least for a year or two.
