Summer Jobs are probably the most sought after work opportunities at the moment where students throughout the country are looking to earn extra money over the summer! Due to the demand for summer work from the younger generation, employers throughout the country are offering temporary, part time work for people. The most popular areas of work around this time are:
- Summer Camp Jobs
Enjoy working with kids? Spend this summer working at summer camps in the UK or abroad. There are loads of summer camps such as sports camps, adventure camps, special needs camps, educational summer schools, and many more, which recruit for roles including activity leaders, sports coaches, teachers, mentors, kitchen staff, and office staff. Most provide food and accommodation as well as a salary, so they are a great way spending the summer in a new town or country!
- Theme Park Jobs
Give people the time of their lives this summer by working at a theme park! Help ensure that park visitors have a day to remember and leave with huge smiles on their faces. There are loads of roles to choose from including ride attendants, retail, food & beverage, sales, customer service, cleaning, warehouse, photography and entertainment, so there is something to suit a wide range of ages, skills and interests.
- Retail Opportunities
More and more shops exist these days – and more and more staff are needed to keep them running. In the Summer, people shop more, staff go on holiday more, and so they recruit more! As Summer jobs go, working in a shop is a great way of earning money, knowing what hours you are expected to do, and build up experience. If you add to this the latest trend of extended hours shopping, even 24 hour shopping in some supermarkets, then you can see why they require extra staff. Summer jobs can also be found in out of town stores, and retail parks, which have more trouble recruiting people due to their location.
- Summer Festival Jobs:
Between June and September each summer there are stack loads of festivals right across the UK, and they all have loads of summer job opportunities for students. You can do anything from security and stewarding jobs right through to bar work and selling merchandise. You will get free entry to the festival and some jobs will include accommodation and food as well. If you want guaranteed entry to your favourite summer festivals then why not get paid to go as well, with a fantastic summer festival job!
