Local councils and public sector organisations like schools, colleges, community centres etc are the most likely to offer part-time, job shares, flexible working hours and term-time only stuff.
If you are looking for casual hours and can spare some time over Xmas, now is the time to go for shop work, as all the shops are taking on temp Xmas staff. M&S and the supermarkets are big Xmas employers.
Thanks, i have been checking the four localish councils regularly but there are no jobs atm. I am just kicking myself for not appylying 6 months ago when i was just considering it but not too keen, everything here seems to be downsizing, all the shops in the high street are closing down, so I dont hold too much hope out that I will get a job in our town but will def keep an eye out for xmas vacancies
