    Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone knew of any flexible jobs?

    I'm looking to save up for my own car which will probably be cheaper in the long run as my mum & dad both have mini coopers... and I just want my own car, haha. I haven't passed my driving test yet (I actually haven't taken any lessons yet, although I'm really 20! oops!)

    The job would have to be quite flexible though (maybe 2 days a week?) because I already have a part time job (sunday, monday, saturday) going to Egypt for 2 weeks & Rockness for the weekend... but so far that's all I have planned for summer (Which is like 5 months long for my uni!)

    I was thinking along the lines of working in a call centre (where would I look for such jobs though? I live in Glasgow) or a bar. Nothing that requires a lot of energy because my current job is quite stressful really.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Some kind of seasonal work at somewhere like one of those National Trust houses?

    take anything you can get. i don't think you can be picky in this climate- it's hard enough to get any job! your best bet is a supermarket or call centre- just send your cv around or look online

    A call centre job would be good for you. Its rota - based and you just choose your shifts

    School uniform shops are fantastic for summer jobs. They recruit especially for summer, as its their busiest time.. the smaller ones will take on part time staff for summer, the bigger ones (one I worked at last year) took on five full time shop girls over summer.
    There's lots of chance for overtime if you want it (Going to school open nights, big order days etc)

    However, as the jobs are good, there's quite a bit of demand for them, and so the wages aren't great. I got paid minimum wage last year, but as minimum wage for an 18 year old is around £185 for a weeks work.. not terrible for a summer job.
