    Just wondering how people handle a job during sixth form and what kind of jobs you had, what times you worked etc. As I'm currently looking for a job. My mam isn't letting me get a job but my dad is telling me to get a job, the reason my mam doesn't want me to have a job is because my school hours are 8:30 - 5:15 except on on Monday and Friday when they are 8:30-4:15.

    Why not get a weekend Job? or you could volunteer on a 0 Hour contract. This means that you can work whenever you want. My friend does this at the British Heart Foundation.

    I thought with a 0 hour contract flexibility is mandatory? Also many jobs require I work during the week when I don't get in until six.

    I volunteered at a charity shop for 4 hours every Saturday

    Was that to gain experience and if so did it help when applying for jobs?

    I currently work 20 hours a week, on weekends and evenings, and am at sixth form, its difficult to manage, I'd suggest not getting a job at sixth form if you have the option, otherwise look for a flexible contract job, I think most fast food chains have these or a weekend job

    It was partly because I'd had no luck applying for jobs! But when I handed out my CV this summer, places were pleased that I'd had retail experience. It does look good on a PS and it's not as big a commitment as doing paid work but more than that it's really satisfying to be able to help something you care about

    go for a decent restaurant as you won't start work until 6 or 7pm and likely only work weekends and maybe bank holidays and days in and around Christmas and new years weeks

    I think I'll try that to show my mam that I can handle a job but only work a few hours on Saturday, do I need to apply online for volunteering or can I just ask in the shop?

    Yay! I went into some shops and asked if they wanted volunteers and then they gave me a form to fill in. I'm not sure if you can do it online though
