    I'm going to get one, as I spend too much as it is! If you are getting one, how many hours will you do a week?

    i'm hoping to get one.
    my part time ambition is to be a cashier or a data-entry clerk haahaaha
    or maybe a translator..if they need any Japanese-English speakers..

    i can only work 20hrs a week as i'm an international student. But i'm not sure if i even have the time to work..

    I'll be getting a part time job, not sure what yet though.
    I reckon i'll need to bring in about £100 a week, so that'd mean about 20 hours in a shop, or less hours in a restaurant working as a waiter, maybe 15 hours..

    However, I could also do computer repairs and help with german learners, only to a certain degree, perhaps GCSE..

    I'd have to see what comes up when I get there!

    Oh yeah, and I will need to get the grades to get into Leeds first! :p:

    Hi all, Leeds is supposedly very well geared up for employing students, I applied to an insurance company in Leeds who give out student term-time contracts, I've got through two stages and have another interview so fingers crossed...there does seem to be plenty of work out there esp. for marketing agencies, who offer the odd day and you can refuse it if you want they just put your details on their database and ring you if and when...easy money seemingly at £50-£60 a day.

    Don't think i'll be getting a job as i'll be heading home most weekends, and want to use the week for studies (i WILL get my head down this time!)
    However, i have an interview today for my local cinema, so hopefully if i get that, i'll be able to do the odd shift over the weekend at home.

    Its something ridiculous like 40% discount working there (an ex housemate used to work in personal shopping, got to shop for all sorts of people) But 40% at Harvey Nick's is still a hell of a lot. There are so many shops and bars in the city though you shouldn't have trouble finding work

    20 hours is a lot isn't it?

    I hope to do 12 or less, but might not get it until after Christmas once I've got an idea of the workload etc.

    I quite miss my till I have to say!

    I'm keeping the job I've got in Doncaster while I'm at Uni. I work 16 hours at weekends in a store. Its only about a 35 minutes by train to Doncaster from Leeds anyway so if I don't go home at weekends, I can commute

    what kinda work are you tlaking about, sorry if it sounds thick, but what would you do for a marketing agency to earn £50 a day?

    I relaly need to get a part time job, working in a library at the moment(not many hours though, i will find it hard to adjust to working more than the odd shift a week and saturdays), maybe i can get a similar position at Leeds Library :confused: , otherwise its supermarket shelf stacking and till work for me, not going to be too fussy, thats just pointless! although I may have to draw the line at macdonalds, I would hate to work there, it woudl be worse than being a cleaner in a primary school which was my last summer job :rofl:
    ewww at the memories :eek:

    its only hmm 20mins or so maybe less on the train form Leeds to Braddy, so in theory i can keep my Job here and commute at weekends and the odd weekday, timetable permitting....
