    Hey, Does anyone know any jobs that I can apply to that is just during the Christmas break (maybe over by a couple of weeks)?
    Most xmas temp jobs require me to work in the beginning of December and even October which I can't do because of my mock exams.
    Thankssss

    I think the post office ask for extra people on the run up to xmas? no idea what the exact dates are though

    very few places will literally want someone over december, they'll want you to be trained and confident before the worse of the rush hits

    for the record I don't think working over your mocks wuold be an issue at all

    ISIS are looking for "one day only" type workers to cover the extra rush of people in busy shopping centres.

    Santa Clause is looking to hire short people to assist in his busy polar warehouse for the run up to christmas and to double check lists.

    ESA (European Space Agency) are seeking to take on both permanent and temporary orangutans, ideally with at least 2 GCSEs in science related subjects.

    The local police forces also often hire part time students to help their dogs sniff out drugs.

    Also local shops in general also take on thick people for similar reasons. You get peanuts instead of money but a job is a job.

    Most retail chains take on Christmas temps, as do supermarkets. It'll be difficult to find somewhere that'll only take you on for those couple of weeks though, because they need them for longer and there's always people able to do it. Maybe you could ask if you can do less hours around your exams, to increase during the holiday?
