Looking for a summer job for an 18 year old in Limerick?

Despite the fact that the economic crisis is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down for Ireland the fact of the matter is that there is still plenty of casual and part time work out there for people who are willing to put in long shifts, work hard and make minimum wage. While it might not sound like the most enticing of offers, it's just an unhappy truth about the current recession that you're going to have to get over and deal with as quickly as possible.

The times of being able to pick and choose which kind of work you wanted are long gone in this day and age. Now it's a case of taking what you can get, even if it's something you could never have imagined yourself doing previously.

Since you are only 18, it's going to be even tougher to find reliable work since you're unlikely to have any really meaningful work experience in the past. If you have already gained some part time retail experience then you'll have an excellent chance of finding something in one of your local supermarkets (Tesco, Lidl, Aldi and Supervalu all have a strong presence throughout Limerick and are worth checking out, since they are the major employers of part time staff in the area).

For those of you without any form of work experience, we recommend you take a look at the increasing number of outbound telesales positions. The work is hard, and you will most likely spend the majority of your day fending off abuse from people irrate at the fact that you called them at home, but if you can settle into the groove you should be able to meet your sales targets and earn some decent commission on top of your likely wage of between €8.00 and €9.00 per hour. Since the majority of people only manage to last a few months in outgoing telesales jobs, it makes them the ideal summer job for an 18 year old in Limerick.

In order to find yourself some of these telesales jobs, we recommend you check out the website of Dublin based recruitment agency Safe Tic who specialise in recruiting for this particular kind of work, especially in the Limerick area. You can take a look at their website at safe-tic.com.
