    I would like to earn money this Christmas, and I know businesses are hiring for Christmas jobs already this October. however, a lot of the temp Christmas Jobs are during school hours.

    for anyone who has done a Christmas temp job, how did you fit it around school? can you ask the employer if you could only work during half term?

    Hand your CV out and tell the employer you are only available on weekends until the Christmas holidays. A lot of places need weekend staff to give their full-time staff the time off.

    I agree.
    Depending on the opening hours of the place you are applying to, you may also be able to do evenings after school
