    I live in a smallish town and there isn't much in the way of part time or temporary job opportunities here and so I have been struggling to find any sort of work, i have looked everywhere i can think of. so I was wondering what other things i can do to earn a bit of money over the summer. I just need some ideas really.

    Have you looked locally, e.g at supermarkets and shops? There is the UCAS survey site, where you earn £1 vouchers for completing surveys, and there are plenty of sites where you earn for completing surveys but surveys dont come everyday. I`d suggest you keep looking, and ask family to look out for vacancies aswell. Even while you`re looking, try to find volunteer somewhere so you can continue gaining skills to include in your CV, shows employers you take every chance you can get to improve your skills . Try these sites when job searching:
    Indeed
    Reed
    Totaljobs
    cv-library
    Employment4Students

    Hope that helps
