    I have a main job where I do 22.5 hours a week then I have a 0 hour contract job which I do one hour every fortnight. It doesn't give me a lot of money at all (13.40 a month!) :hmmm: but the company is still waiting for more clients for me to visit (domestic). Does this sound a bit pointless to do? I'm trying to make every penny as I can

    I don't think it's pointless but 13.40 a month is literally pennies I'd say keep with the 0 hour contract for a few more weeks at most and if things don't improve then it very well may be better just to quit (unless you don't mind it or enjoy the job). If you still wanna keep with 2 jobs I think you'd be better looking for an alternative part-time job that offers around 8 hours max a week (you can look for more but try not to tire/stress yourself out too much) so then at least you have a lot more consistency in your shifts and higher wages

    Thank you for your reply. Well, I decided that I am going to quit - because I've waited for two months nearly and only got one client per fortnight during that time as many clients want regular cleaners every week on the days I'm not available. I am going to do volunteering instead with the company (hospital aftercare) as I think that will benefit me more as I am at university so I need experience and I haven't got to worry about financial woes. I will do overtime in my main job instead as many staff have left now! Thanks for your help x

    What are you spending on travel for the second job? If you can afford it, I'd drop the second job.

    Not much.They pay petrol expenses but only from the first client you visit. So I will not get any petrol expenses because I have no client to visit after the first one so I will be spending my petrol for just £13 a month! Not really worth it at all.
