I really want to get a part time job in a gym, cafe or shop. I have lots of experience from years ago but most of the places have closed down since or I would struggle to get a reference, plus it’s been a long time. Also I have done a lot of self employed work.
I have been studying and had 2 children and am at University, as well as having to be on the sick for a while due to health reasons.
I really want to be working but not sure how to get my foot in the door.
I can work weekdays but not weekends. Any advice would be much appreciated. I am desperate to be back in the workplace ASAP.
I think not being able to work weekends would be a problem. There are a zillion opportunities like this available now, particularly as it's xmas, but most want you to be available at their busiest times. Perhaps an office role would suit you better? Have you got a cv? Have you signed up to indeed or other job websites for daily alerts? Try dropping your CV at all local gyms, cafes, shops. Blitz them. Good luck
What's the job market like where you live? I looked on Indeed recently for pt jobs for DS, there seem to be loads of vacancies here. I'm sure you'll be able to find something during the week easy enough, as students tend to want weekends.
Of course 😊 I am thinking of doing an admin course too and temping as a receptionist or admin in Surrey or London then going into something more academic once I graduate. Love being in the work place- getting hair and makeup done, ironing clothes, the feeling of being productive, the banter —not being puked on al day—
