I've got a job as a temp, doing waiting, bar work etc. through a temp agency at various events.
It's my only job I can put down. Would it look bad on a UCAS application?

Why would it look bad? I applied with no employment so I doubt having temp work is any worse than that.

Nope still shows that you are employable, reliable, punctual etc. etc.

For most applications, I highly doubt the universities pay that much attention to your actual job beyond seeing you have one and the obvious time management skills that come into play there. If you're applying for primary education and have been working as a teaching assistant for the last 5 years then this is highly relevant, but in terms of applicants coming straight from school it doesn't really matter what you write there. For mature applicants, the employment section holds more importance as they have an actual working life to include.
