    I currently work part -time 9 hours a week in retail. I cannot get anymore time and my hours are fixed but that's not a big issue as much as I really don't like working here and it is making me very unhappy.

    I graduated this year and am looking to apply to graduate schemes. is it risky leaving this job without another job lined up ? I've tried getting another retail job but most were christmas temps until January so I left it.

    So retail companies look for Christmas temps but if they like you they will keep you on for full time. It is a bit risky to leave a job without one to go onto, but if you can survive a few weeks with no job whilst looking for one, then it's better to leave. Happiness is important in life. There's no point in living an unhappy life, unhappiness can have a drastic effect on your well being. So yeah, just apply as many jobs as you can for now and give your current job a week or two notice to say you're leaving and hopefully you'll get a job within that timeframe.
