First job in Leeds

Hi everyone,
I have recently completed level 2 while working full time in education. Any advice on how to get my foot in the door? Over the summer holiday I have been working as a payroll assistant/Bookkeeper but recruiters are still not getting back to me. Thank you.

    Congratulations on achieving level 2!

    What door exactly are you trying to get a foot in? What's wrong with the payroll/bookkeeping job?

    Sorry, I wasn't really clear in the post. I worked for FREE to get some experience over the summer. Now, I'm back at my old job and looking for a way out. Thanks

    I would keep onto the recruiters, contact them and ask them how the market is and if there is anything available in your area.
