I know that last year most jobs disappeared out of the paper for most of December until after Christmas. Some companies shut down for two weeks over xmas, so my thought is that they don't like to take people on so near to Xmas as they would then have to either pay them holiday pay or the employee would have to take time out without pay (that's my theory, could be wrong though )

I've asked my OH to keep his ear out for you, but he hasn't heard of anything yet. There's also an agency in SA called Hudsons, get in touch with them when you get here and see what they say - they got my OH a job within 24 hours (but he did have his licence).
