Before anyone can give any advice, we really need to know:

- What country you are in;
- What country your father is coming from;
- Under what visa conditions is he entering, e.g. permit to work, right to remain, length of residence;
- Does he speak the language of his intended country fluently;
- Does he have a specific profession or any kind of specialist education;
- What type of work does he actually want?

We still might not be able to help, but this information may be sufficient for someone here to point you in the right direction.

I'm not sure what country you are in, but most countries require that he have a work visa or be a permanent resident, which I gather he isn't.

Thanks Liz! It was very helpful for me. Well i know he has to be in uk to find a job for him. He is planning to come uk in july. and i even want to know that in which month generally most jobs declared? He has not any qualification. so he would not get any office job. I think he is best suitable for factory jobs. He will definetely try to improve his english.

Is he attempting to improve his fluency? He'll need to if he wishes a job that's more than minimum wage. Also, I doubt that you can 'find' a job for him. He'll need to do so himself, naturally with your support if you both wish it. You can't attend interviews for him or consult with job agency staff about his strengths and weaknesses and experience etc. It has to be him in person.

There are various agencies in the UK that help with finding work, including general ones that have branches which operate on the high street. Job Centres also post notice of some work that is available. The pools of jobs posted in each place do not necessarily overlap, so he'll need to check all of them. You can use a telephone directory, commonly called 'the Yellow Pages' either in hard copy (they should have one at your local library if you don't have one yourself) or online in order to find all the places in your locality that offer job listings. They're often listed under 'Recruitment'.

Local newspapers will also carry job notices. There is usually one day a week in which they run a longer feature on available jobs and it's definitely worth while finding out which day that is. For example, the Bristol Evening Post runs many more job ads on a Thursday in their evening edition especially.

You can use the telephone directory to find the general enquiries number for any given newspaper's offices and ask them which day they carry their job ads. If you buy the paper from a smaller newsagent, they may well be friendly enough and knowledgeable enough to tell you which day the job ads run for that paper, if you ask them. It's worth a try.

Well he is portuguese so he doesn't need any visa to come and work in uk. that's not the thing i worry about but i just want to find a suitable job for him. I didn't work in uk so i don't know about jobs.
