    I need a job from June to October before I go to university because I need something to do and the money would really help too, I already have a part time job on Sundays but there's only overtime going when someone's off sick (and there's only 7 of us so that doesn't happen often) I'd be interested in anything I'd possibly be able to do (retail, cafe, admin?) anyone know where do temporary jobs that would suit this or could I just get a full time job then quit in October? (I wouldn't use them as a reference anyway)

    So frustrating, I've looked around but can't apply yet because they all want immediate start and I can't do it from now because of college, but it usually takes months to get a job.. Then the summer will be over :/

    I'm going to wait until uni to get a job because there are none here, somehow all these year 10's keep getting hired over us college students (Probs cheaper labour under 18's). I can support myself currently from my online services and they should also increase once I move to Birmingham.

    The best time to apply for summer jobs is around April/May, as lots of University students will be leaving ~June to go home or start full time work. Applying wise means you close the gap, i.e. applying for a summer job in June/August may not leave you with as many options as most employers will have replaced their staff by this time.
    Some employers may be quite happy to offer summer work, as their particular company may have a surge during summer. However I've found it best not to mention that it's short term, as they may not want to waste time an energy training someone up for an insignificant amount of time.
    Most applications will be online, but going into stores dressed well and speaking directly to the store manager bodes well and shows your enthusiasm.
    Best of luck

    Quite a few leisure centres (at least around were i live anyway) run play schemes etc in the summer, so it might be worth applying there.
    Another option is mcdonalds. I work there- and they take on a lot of students. Like the person above said though, it might be worth not mentioning that you will only be there for such a short amount of time.

    Most leisure centres (at least round where i live anyway) run playschemes for kids in the summer. So it may be worth applying for that.

    Go somewhere hot and pretty and work in a bar/restaurant for the summer in a very touristy area where they'll be wanting english speakers for the summer. The money's minimum wage but the cost of living eg in southern Spain is very cheap and you'll have a lot of fun if you go somewhere with plenty to do in your spare time (even if it's just a nice local beach and decent nightlife).

    I've had/ still got one as a hotel receptionist. Just for the holidays- they need more staff over the summer due to more tourists.

    £7.15 an hour for 3 months.
    Where's the hotel?

    If you're looking for a Summer Job, AlpJob.com have a whole bunch of them in Switzerland.

    Good luck
    I looked there, looking for within the UK and nothing suitable atm, but the opportunities for abroad next year look good
