If you're financially independent that's nowhere near enough.

If you worked 10 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, for £15 an hour, you’d be earning £7800 a year or £650 a month.

You may be able to survive on that just about, but it would be a struggle. You’d be living in a room in a shared flat and wouldn’t have much money left after rent, bills and food.

I’ve seen jobs advertised for 2 hours a day. I’ve never looked at electrician jobs, but things like after school clubs, cleaners, some maintenance/caretaker jobs are 2 hours a day or 8-10 hours a week. Retail can be 8-10 hours a week.


If you want people to help you, taking the piss isn’t going to help you get good answers.

yes easily, working 10 hours yields £180 a day, £900 a week and over 3.6k a month and around 46k a year

assuming you are only working for 5 days
