    I've had two jobs before temporarily, one was working for Travelex in the summer, it was meh. Then I worked for Amazon before Christmas, it was like 40 hours a week minimum and pretty dull/not exactly the kind of job I want.

    I study for my A-level retakes most days, and I go to a tutor 3 days a week so I don't really want to be working a 40 hour job. Every time I look on sites like indeed, the jobs are things like warehouse operative or truck driver.

    None of these jobs are the type of jobs I'm looking for, most students don't work part time in a factory whilst also studying do they?

    Looking at temp staff jobs would be an idea - you sign up to an agency and work at various events as bar staff etc. Or just handing in your CV at local businesses for part time hours. If there's a University near you it's worth looking at their vacancies as usually jobs on University campuses are really flexible and well paid.

    Would it be best to hand in a CV? How could I make it non specific? I tend to write cvs for the job.

    Yes - so I wrote two different CVs, one for a retail job and one for a waitressing job and handed them into shops and cafes. Also many high street chains like River Island etc will give you an application form if you ask and are usually really helpful
