    I'm a waitress. I work five hours a week on a Friday night so it doesn't affect my A-level work too much and although the pay isn't brilliant, if you add on any tips you can get it can be a pretty good little earner. Last night, for example, I did 3 tables (still "in training" so I'm quite slow, not allowed full sections yet and get to wear a funky badge telling everyone I'm incompetent at my job! :p:) and made £36.

    Alternatively, I have friends who work in call centres, in deli shops, and kids soft play areas amongst other things.

    The lifeguard job sounds good.

    How do I find a job in admin? Nothing on the websites, so does that mean there's nothing going, or should I be looking somewhere else?
    Try http://www.reed.co.uk/.
    The right search (area, sector etc.) should come up with the right results. Good luck.

    Anyone have/had any well paid part time jobs that weren't working in some shop? How did you find them?
    Bar jobs.

    You can pick and choose shifts.
    Just take round loads of cv's and hope someone likes you.

    Yep, Jennie91987 is completely right. Although I get £20 per session the £7p/h was just for the training!

    Good luck! x

    I' d defintey go for lifeguard, it's not tiring, well paid, not stressful as a catering job and it's plenty of offers. I did my lifeguard qualification when I was in London at london leisure college almost for free as that time I was under 18 but you can get a sponsorship from an employer. WOrth a try.

    I just got a (very) temporary job as a Survey Assistant for a building surveying company - it's only for a week but it's 40 hours at £7.50 p/h. I'm hoping that if I do well, something a bit more permanent may come out of it... I'm going to be walking around the Luton campus of the University of Bedfordshire, counting the number of people in certain rooms, and entering the info onto a handheld computer - I've got to do the round of rooms every hour from 8/9 - 5.
