Judging by your post here shes not going to able to rely on you much then. Think about what you wrote a bit more and imagine you were answering that query then re write it correctly.

Firstly, does she speak English and can you get the CV translated into English?

Secondly, what is her background and what type of work is she looking for?

From here we might be able to advise you what the best steps would be

Then my advice is for her to get her CV out to as many agencies as possible and for her to be prepared to register with as many as possible. Most agencies are being swamped by candidates right now so my advice is to "stay close" to them and continue to follow up and chase them - there is a lot of competition out there. Also look at company websites in the area that you live in and check out their career sections. Even if they are not recruiting, get an e-mail address for HR and e-mail them directly enquiring about opportunities. If she doesn't mind the type of work then I would also knock on doors - IE go into pubs, shops, restaurants, offices and speak to managers and give them the CV. The online job boards - Monster, CVLibrary, Jobsite and the like are always worth a shout. Get her to post her CV on as many of these job sites as possible for maximum exposure.

Put the word out to your friends and family as well but avoid actively job seeking for her. It never comes across well when someone phones up or enquires on behalf of another person.

Chances are she will not be given a job on the strength of her CV alone and as there is more competition for jobs at the moment, Hiring Managers are being more thorough with their interview and selection processes. Therefore if your girlfriend is invited for an interview, make sure you get a detailed brief and outline of what to expect and if there is anything she would specifically need to prepare for the interview. If she then does the research and the thorough preparation, she will hopefully go into the interview with a fighting chance.

Good luck

Try jobseekers.direct like the rest of the 2.5 million unemployed at the moment! Oh and I am sure with your Welsh connections you will be able to "pull alot of strings". The Welsh, after all do stick together. Good luck.
