The UK is an island nation, but shares a open land border with Ireland. The flag of the United Kingdom is popularly known as the Union Jack or, more properly, Union Flag. As Wales was politically integrated into the English kingdom hundreds of years ago, its flag was not incorporated into the Union Jack. The Welsh flag features the Red Dragon of Cadwaladr, King of Gwynedd, superimposed on the Tudor colours of green and white.

Most recruitment agencies specialise in a particular sector like IT, retail, childcare or secretarial. Some agencies are ‘headhunters’ who are employed by large companies to recruit executives and professionals on their behalf. Others are ‘temping’ agencies who can help you find temporary work in offices and retail, for example. Look on the online phone book under ‘recruitment consultants’ or at Agency Central or Recruitment Search.
