Job hunting in London - where do I start?

I'd like to work in London but I have no idea where to start! I'm a British citizen, age 30, but I've grown up in Australia. I'm looking for any kind of work that pays the bills. Policy work would be especially nice (I have some experience there) but temping/office jobs would be fine too. Can you recommend me some agencies and websites where I can start, and also any other hints and tips for first-timers to the London/UK job market! Thank you!

Why do bus shelters face the way they do?

A colleague who has recently moved to London asked me why bus shelters here sometimes face towards and sometimes away from the road, seemingly at random. I guessed maybe to do with the location of under-road pipes/wiring, but couldn't find anything concrete online. Anyone know?

Trying to rent a room in (South East) London. As we all know, renting in this city is a sweat, a nightmare, and a racket. But my question is pretty specific - what sites do you use other than Spareroom and Gumtree? Thanks.

I need a classroom!

My fundraising training class has taken off. I started teaching four weeks ago and now I have been asked to teach two more modules. Problem is one is in London. I would like to find a place to lead a fundraising training on consecutive Sundays in Watford between Watford High Street, Watford Junction and Watford Tube starting in September. Anyone have any ideas or alternatives I should consider? My classes are action learning so there are only handouts and homework not overheads.

Where to find a reasonably priced studio flat or room in London?

Where to find a reasonably priced studio flat or room in London? I've been looking for accommodation in London for quite some time now, but so far I've been unsuccessful (or.. unlucky) with searching in all the "usual" places (Gumtree.com, Findaproperty, flatland.co.uk etc.) In the meantime, I need to move within a couple of weeks, and can't seem to find anything in East Central London (close to City University) that is not super expensive and/or managed by a (what i prefer to call) "greedy agent"... very frustrating :/

I need dice dammit!

I need to buy/obtain at least one set of polyhedral dice (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20 (pos d00)) by Wednesday morning (6th June BST). Problem: I will be travelling to London Tuesday morning (5th June), and it's a public holiday, so not many shops, especially specialist gaming shops, will be open. Is there an online shop that will deliver in less than 24 hours, or will there be an IRL shop open in London on Tuesday? Thanks!
