    No; it takes a week for them to look through yours and others' applications, and another week to conduct interviews, collect references and offer jobs to people. That's the bare minimum.

    Something like a small time takeaway.

    Small-time takeaways are usually family-run businesses; they are not going to give somebody they don't know a job for 2 weeks, for them to just leave the company after this time. Companies like these will draft in relatives (paid or unpaid) to cover periods such as a fortnight.

    Not all small-time takeaways are family run businesses. He's got nothing to lose by going in and asking.
