    Due to studying commitments I have very specific requirements when it comes to looking for a job.

    I'm looking for something 4-6 hours per day, up to six days per week, any time between 10am and 7pm. I study for anything up to five hours per day, finishing no later than 8pm.

    I don't mind what kind of work it is, but it needs to pay upwards of eight pounds an hour. I have a huge loan to pay off for my studies, and I only have five years.

    Thank you if you do help, I really appreciate it!

    Temporary work in a warehouse is probably your best option?
    That's the most suitable option as the pay is good too. It quite difficult for your circumstances as you're a university student and many businesses would need you to be more flexible with your hours. There is no harm in asking though.
