Jobs featured in Summer Jobs in Britain include:
>Deck hands for luxury hotel barges on rivers and canals
>Staff for Wimbledon tennis or the British Grand Prix
>Work experience placements at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

>Walk leaders for the most scenic parts of Britain
>Volunteers for an archaeological dig at Silchester
>Guides for a whisky distillery in Scotland
>Stable staff for a racehorse yard in Lancashire
>Visitor service assistants for Windsor Castle

To help readers decide whether a job is right for them the book explains when and to whom to apply and gives information on wages (up to $900 per week), when the work is available, what previous experience if any is required, if there are age limits and whether accommodations are provided and at what cost.

Also included are information on work permits, including the Work in Britain scheme for American students, and advice on taxation and the British national minimum wage. In addition, for people who want to work in a particular part of the country the book's regional chapters are preceded by introductions that explain the possibilities for finding work in that area.
