Hi,

I'm looking into part-time jobs in Edinburgh that students can do around their studies – wondered if anyone lives (or has lived) there and has any experience in finding casual work for weekends and holidays etc?

Would be great to know if there are any popular places that students go to for jobs? Know there must be lots in retail and hospitality too!

Thanks so much.

Hi
You hit it on the head with retail & hospitality.
Look at likes of say Boots ( take on people from 15 although you older ) , tesco, sainsburys, asda, Morrison's intend to want people at 18 yrs old although will take on 16 yrs plus with restrictions due to age okay, also lots of other retailers.

Most young students tend to go for McDonald's or KFC.

Then try local café & shops within area you'll be living as a student in Edinburgh.

When you apply for jobs do make sure that you apply for weekends and anything from after you finish your day at university as they will presume you willing to work anytime.

I worked part-time job throughout my students days doing weekends as I was already working in it from age firthteen and a half and still there yet.
I completed my degree and I am currently doing another degree course and I am able to work round working there while at university and also on any placements.
It's doable if you willing to do it and don't let your studies fall behind.

I live in edinburgh as been there all my life.
