There are far too many people now chasing each job vacancy, so much so that usually - within the space of just a few hours - the vacancy has gone.

Depressing. It just makes you feel like giving up looking for work altogether.

Dont take this the wrong way but considering all the work you have done to get a job it's about time you ask yourself " am i doing something wrong "
have you got a proper CV? and i dont mean one you knocked up on the computer in an hour?
all these letters for jobs. are they cold letter?
I'm not saying you havent tried but trying "wrong" is as bad as not trying.

My CV has been professionally done, and indeed has been praised y one or two employers and recruiters, so there is no need to revamp it.

No, the problem is that I live in a rubbishy area like Wirral, which is one of the worst places in the UK for unemployment. I would love to get out of the place, but the question is, where to go?

have you considered working in security?
i dont know if its still available but if you have been unemployed for 6months or more the job centre would fund you the training and a badge.
there is always lots and lots of work available in security i promise you that. just something else for you to consider. smile

Have you tried indeed.co.uk? They are advertising plenty of jobs on the "rubbishy" Wirral and even describe it as "The Wirral Peninsula is an extremely attractive and sought after location with excellent schools and leisure facilities. It enjoys proximity to the exciting cities of Manchester, Liverpool and Chester with good road and rail links to the rest of the country, while maintaining its rural character." But that was on a advert for a Consultant in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery - Foot & Ankle....

Well, according to you, anywhere would be better, so why delay?

Tut Tut ... stop picking on jobneeded, he / she, is right.
Wirral IS a crap place when you are looking for work. Anyone who says it isnt is seriously out of touch !

Have any of the people complaining about the lack of work considered putting their skills and talent to work by doing something for themselves, the JobCentre will even give (or is that loan) you a thousand pounds and pay you a portion of Job Seekers' allowance for a few months. There are also grants, some repayable, some not, available.

With your outlook on life, and all the moaning you do, I know of just the job for you, it requires no people skills, and no sense of humour, Become a prison officer.

May I point out to Jobneeded67 numerous members over at least the last 6 months have taken time to inform you of places where there are vacancies including myself but to my knowledge you have never returned any feedback back as to if you have applied to these vacancies whereas you have commented about 3 times of one place you have applied to as a total waste of time
