Summer in the UK is bright, eventful, but unfortunately, a lil’ pricey. In between drinking beers at the pub and having picky bits in the garden, there may be time for you to pick up a job this coming summer!
Employers are always looking to hire in the hotter seasons as more seasonal events take place, and their opening hours extend. Here are some hot jobs to do this summer, including ones that are currently on Placed!
Nothing screams ‘British Summer’ like boozy nights in beer gardens, and you can still soak in that atmosphere whilst getting paid. Marston’s and Greene King have plenty of bar staff vacancies on the Placed App. La Terraza, part of Ibérica Restaurants, also has a lovely outdoor terrace area so you can also catch those rays whilst on the job. If you prefer skies over grass, it’s a great idea to find work on a rooftop bar!
Just finished your exams recently, knowing you smashed it? Get into tutoring!
It’s only right that you pass on your big brain waves to a hopeful student looking to come back smarter than ever after the summer holidays. The great thing about tutoring is that it’s super flexible, so you can teach a few hours during the week, leaving the weekend completely free! Just remember to put your tutoring ad on a safe website or offer your lessons to families whom you trust.
If all of that seems like effort, just use Placed to get matched with a job instead!
Following the pandemic, the UK has seen an increase in outdoor dining. Nowadays, we’re seeing dining tables spill out onto the sunny street – we can’t help but eat out! So it’s perfect timing to be snagging a waitstaffing gig. Head to Placed for vacancies in restaurants such as Côte, Marston’s, Belushi’s Bars, and Ibérica.
Most restaurants provide their employees with a complimentary meal on their breaks, and happy Brits or tourists are bound to be generous with tips this summer as well!
4. Retail Assistant
Why not work at some of your favourite high-street stores, whether that be O2, Urban Outfitters or JD Sports? Or find smaller, local shops for a more unique experience. Working in retail offers flexible hours in many locations across the country. Speaking as an ex-retail worker, shifts went fast in the summer months! I also took it as an opportunity to window shop whilst getting paid. You may even get an employee discount at your store!
Pick the shop you like the most – and buy your summer wardrobe at the end of the shift!
