Christmas jobs 2013 Leicester
Christmas can seem like a long way off but as time rolls on the availability of seasonal work decreases so you should get in quick. Christmas jobs for 2013 in Leicester might be rare this year because of the economy but there will still be plenty of opportunities if you get job searching sooner rather than later.
Leicester City Council
Leicester City Council’s website, leicester.gov.uk is already listing temporary Christmas jobs for 2013 in Leicester. Their site contains a link to Leicester's large employers' job websites such as Highcross, the NHS and the city and county councils and it can be filtered to “Part-time and other jobs” so you can see the range of opportunities available to you in the area.
Companies like John Lewis are already listing Christmas vacancies on their website jlpjobs.com, but if you are not interested in working in retail employment websites like totaljobs.com and jobsite.co.uk should also be visited. If you’re too busy to actively search these sites, uploading your CV to a site like monster.com puts you on the job market by allowing potential employers to find your CV.
Major Christmas employers
Other major seasonal employers include the Post Office, who take on between 18,000 and 21,000 additional members of staff for the Christmas period across the nation. Supermarkets are another employer who react to the Christmas period by hiring temporary staff. Major chains like Sainsbury’s take on around 15,000 employees across the country, so there should be opportunities in their Belgrave Road, Humberstone Gate and at the Fosse Shopping Park stores.
There’s no shortage of Christmas jobs for 2013 in Leicester if you look early enough. If you get a temporary job be prepared for a busy time no matter which industry you find yourself in, as the firm would not be hiring additional staff unless they were expecting a surge in trade.
