Those of you with evening/weekend jobs advice on getting one?

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by cliveceltic, Sep 14, 2011.

  1. Well,I tried over the summer to get a job part time, evenings and weekends etc. I was turned down after applying online to Next, AA, and 2 local travel agents. I worked as a teenager and a student in shops so have had experience, but 12 yrs ago now. I have no call centre experience but you have to start somewhere so how do you 'get in'? Many applications are through an online automated system these days and you have to answer questions with the right jargon.

    I am trying to get freelance work and also do tutoring/instrumental teaching (Music Primary specialist) but I really need to boost my income before our income starts exceeding our outgoings. Luckily my husband has hit targets (call centre sales and tries to put me off getting a job in the industry) and has been given odd bits of overtime. I was out of teaching a few years but working on a decent wage and bringing home £1500 a month which is a lot to be permanently down be these days.

    Thanks in advance

  3. I got a weekend job, started as a summer job, then offered to "supply" during illnesses, eventually got it to become a permanent weekend job. My "weekend" then became days I didn't get supply teaching. The original job came through an agency in town. I guess you could call in on agencies, let them know what you are looking for. Check the papers etc.
