Temporary jobs

With Christmas fast approaching, it won’t be long before the shops start advertising for Christmas vacancies. Many Christmas vacancies are temporary to cover the period from November through till January but there may also be the opportunity within some posts to be offered a permanent position.

Often the best way to find these jobs are to look in shop windows and even go in and enquire about any vacancies that they may have. You may even be able to complete a job application form prior to them hiring to get ahead of the rush.

Some shops are happy to take people on with little or no experience and offer on the job training to bring them up to speed, meaning that many positions are open to everyone. You may have to be prepared to work late night and weekends as this is often the busiest time in retail.
