How to become a teaching assistant?

In my borough schools say all vacancies are advertised on the county council website, but hardly any ever appear. Yet in another borough my friend asked to help out and somehow managed to land a teaching assistants job, even though she has no experience! I work at a nursery so have some experience, but wonder if I should be helping out at a school for free rather than waiting for the perfect assistants role to be advertised?! Also what is a teaching assistants salary, at infant level?
