I'm looking for one of those table top dishwashers. I can use the sink's tap if it has a screw end. The problem is that mine doesn’t.
Can anyone think of a way to adapt this tap to get a screw end on?

See those little flats on the tap nozzle? Those are for a wrench. Underneath is a threaded connection. Perchance it's the one you seek.
Dishwashers often come with various adapters. If not, your local hardware store probably has something that will adapt the connections.
Put some tape on the wrench to avoid scratches.
If you absolutely must get one of those things, and from what I've heard, they are more trouble than they are worth, go under the sink and put in a 'T' fitting with a ball valve. Then drill a hole in the counter and run the hose down to the connection under the sink. Now you your dishwasher has a dedicated connection. If you are feeling especially motivated, you can even put a dishwasher elbow in your drain and sink a second hole and run the drain under the sink as well. Then you don't have a sink full of all the grease that was on your dishes.
