    like many people i'd like to travel during my gap year, however i don't have much money saved so will need to work to get more.
    I was thinking about working at waitrose or the co-op for a couple of months (september to january or smth) but i'm not sure if they are very keen to take people only for a couple of months and am also not sure how to apply?
    would be very gratefull for any advice!

    Look online on universal jobsearch or indeed to find jobs in your area. Try and find temporary work but if unsucccessful, apply for a part time job and fail to mention you leaving.
