To help readers decide whether a job is right for them the book explains when and to whom to apply and gives information on wages (up to $900 per week), when the work is available, what previous experience if any is required, if there are age limits and whether accommodations are provided and at what cost.
Also included are information on work permits, including the Work in Britain scheme for American students, and advice on taxation and the British national minimum wage. In addition, for people who want to work in a particular part of the country the book's regional chapters are preceded by introductions that explain the possibilities for finding work in that area.
