    I'm 23 and have graduated uni. I'm getting paid £25k a year which I'm fairly happy with but I'd like to save up to buy a house. Occasionally on some weekends I'm siting at home with not much to do. I would love to find a job where I can work but when it suits me best (so must have a degree of flexibility!)

    I've always avoided retail as I'm not good with numbers (especially quick arithmetic). In terms of flexibility, something like babysitting or dog walking would be perfect as I could just do it when I'm free. Problem is most parents want a babysitter who they can trust so it's mainly word of mouth, while most dog owners would rather someone who's had experience with dogs. I don't mind physical jobs. What would you recommend? In an ideal world something flexible, well paid, won't need qualifications/experience in, and wouldn't affect my 9-5 weekday job (I know it's a lot to ask).

    Sports Development. I now work in Marketing so I guess I could tutor for that. I did Business Studies at GCSE and A Level (A* at GCSE and A at A Level) so I guess I could teach in those areas too. I'll sign up to a few websites now.

    Try mcdonalds.
    They are very flexible. You can do 1 shift a week, 2 shifts a week, shifts that fit around other jobs, school college etc. I worked there for 9 years while at 6th form, college and while at other jobs.

    Bars/clubs often need more staff on during the weekend as it's their busiest time

    I wouldn't expect any unskilled part time job to offer more than the minimum wage though

    Since when has retail required any level of numeracy? Tills do the maths!
