    As I saw in advertised jobs, salary is usualy £18k in London. Does anyone leave in London on that salary? Is it realistic to expect more than that?

    I'm sure that if x number of million people can survive on less than a dollar a day, then 18k should be manageable in London. :)

    Accomdation is going to be the key factor, try and find a flat share or something that isn't too far from the job ... that way you cut down commuting costs also. Do your homework in that regard and you should be onto a winner.

    Flatshare is something I don't look forward to but looks unavoidable. :(

    Depending upon your qualifications, your experience & the job you're going for - it can vary.

    It's always accomodation that's a crapper in london - it's too expensive to live on your own, so it usually is a flatshare that's the best way to go. I did it once for about 3 months in London, and i was still paying 350 quid a month, for a small room - which i thought was expensive

    I used to do bar work when i started out in IT (I was on 10k a year) - worked every Friday night after work til about 4am, and saturday nights aswell. Albeit it not in London, but still the same theory

    This made me an extra 100 a week, which would cover quite a few things.

    Plus, if you get into a decent bar / club - it's more fun and social then having to be a second job - used to love working the clubs/bars when i was younger.

    No I do not have a second job, there are part time work or night work all depends on what your current hours are, one thing about London is there is alot of evenning/night work but just like all jobs there is alot of people going for these jobs.

    One person I live with works nights then in the morning sleeps for 2 hours then uni then a few hours sleep and does it all again its possible but not easy.
