Check out this guide to finding part time jobs in Manchester

We know just how hard it can be to find part time work these days, especially given the combination of an increased number of unemployed people and the fact that the vast majority of job vacancies advertised online are for full time positions only. Fortunately, there are other options available that should suit your needs, and we're going to take a look at the best of them right now.

As you probably know, the retail industry provides more part time employment in Manchester than any other, so finding part time jobs in Manchester usually means taking a look at the best retail options out there. In terms of variety and the best use of your time, we recommend that you take a look at the excellent Trafford Centre.

With dozens of stores spread across one of the biggest shopping centres in the United Kingdom, you should be able to find at least a handful of potential positions that interest you. The trick to finding retail work isn't to search for vacancies online, but to call into the stores in question and enquire as to the availability of positions in person.

For the most part, you'll be told that there are simply no positions available. Rejection is something you'll need to get used to if you want to take this approach to finding work, but the flip side of this is that you'll be out there and getting your face known. If you can speak to the manager then all the better. The chance to build a relationship with someone who will have a say in the hiring process early on is an important one for you to take. Be sure to let your personality shine through and see if you can get on the same wavelength; in the long run it'll mean that you'll be remembered as someone that they would like to work with, rather than just a random name on a CV.

The money on offer for part time retail jobs in Manchester isn't great, unfortunately, for the most part you'll be earning strictly minimum wage of £5.93, but some stores may offer you as much as £6.30 should you have previous experience working in retail.
