As the end of the semester starts to draw closer (well it is December now!), you might think that it’s too late to look and apply for a part-time job. However, you’d be wrong to think that!
Employers may still be looking for staff to work during the Christmas period – keep your eyes peeled when you are in shops, bars and cafes for signs or posters looking for part-time or temporary staff. Lots of businesses tend to advertise in their own stores or in the windows at this time of year given the number of people who are passing by or visiting them.
The Careers Service is still receiving vacancies from employers for part-time staff as well. Some may want people to start as soon as possible whilst others may only want people from January onwards. You can search the vacancies on the Careers Service website. You’ll need to login to access the vacancies on the site. Here are just a few examples of current vacancies on our website which might interest you:
