    Hey guys,

    Just wondering what you think about this. I have just finished college and wanting a job over summer. Instead of working at the typical fashion retailer or high street store I'm thinking about asking my local banks if I could go and work for them over summer to earn some extra money and also it would look good on my CV! I don't mind what I do, obviously I won't be doing the technical jobs, but opening mail, sorting it and filing it things like that I would be happy to do.

    Has anyone else worked for a bank part time like over summer or anything and also how would I go about contacting the bank to ask them. Should I send them an Email or go in to the branch?

    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    If you're under 18, no chance.

    If you're over 18 you might do, but they'd need to already have a role for this - they're not going to create something especially for you! However, my friend worked in a bank as a cashier during her gap year after A Levels so it is possible.
