    It would be 0 hours contracts but its a start, if you look at events stewarding e.g. G4S, flexible and where I grew up they were always looking for people. Basic safety stewarding is minimum wage but doesn't require any licenses or much training, just lots of standing around (in knee-deep mud if a music event) and speaking to people.

    Also agree with the charity shop suggestions.
    I actually got a zero hours contract but was never called . . .

    Once you get on the email/phone list its fine. I used to do a rugby match and a football match each weekend plus whatever else was going - random weekend evening shifts at the ice rink would sometimes come up at short notice or music events would be on or other stadiums would be short staffed - but if I hadn't heard from them in a while would send an email or phone the office to see what was happening. Some of the stewarding companies do night time taxi rank work too, no idea if that pays well though.

    I've had an interview today, and am having another one tomorrow. I also signed up to an agency. Wish me luck!
