Interested in summer jobs?

Are you looking for summer jobs? In this guide, we have put together all the information that you need to know in order to find a job and apply for it.

What are summer jobs?

Summer jobs are temporary jobs that usually provide relief cover over the months of June, July and August. They are popular with students who look for work while they are on holidays from school or college.

Where can I find summer jobs?

Summer jobs are available in a range of industries, and especially those that receive increased business over the summer months. These include businesses related to tourism or leisure, plus retail, which often receives a modest boost when the weather is good. You will also find summer jobs in companies that require relief staff to cover when their employees go on holidays. For example, an office may be able to cope without one salesperson for two weeks, but a hospital will not be able to cope with one less nurse or cleaner.

How do I find vacancies?

Because summer jobs are casual and temporary in nature, employers are usually unwilling to spend large amounts of time advertising them, so you won't usually find them online or in national newspapers. Instead, check out your local media, like the classifieds section of the local paper. Also be on the look out for "Help Wanted" signs in shop windows. Don't be afraid to call into businesses with a copy of your CV and see if the manager is available to chat about upcoming vacancies.
