Work and travel - France or UK???


Im planning to work and travel from late december 2008 to june 2009 (maximum).

I cant decide between France and UK+Ireland

From your experience, which Trip would you recommend (considering the time of year, amount of money I have to spend etc.), where would it be more likely to get a job (very simple work and travel jobs), which country(ies) is more appropriate for work and travel/backpacking in general?
