Not sure how many hours you want to put into your seasonal job yet? Well, with a part-time job over the summer, you’ll still get to enjoy most of your off-time over the warmer months, but you won’t be earning as much money or adding as much value to your CV. When working through your summer in a full-time job, though, your account will be filling up quickly, and you’ll be gaining valuable experience - but with little time to do what you really enjoy. There are pros and cons to both choices, so pick the summer work hours that suit you best.

The best summer jobs

We have many summer vacancies to choose from, so what’s the best one for you? If you’re a social butterfly, how about getting a summer job in retail. You’ll be chatting away with customers, making sales, and keeping the shelves stocked. Or, if you’re more of a small-talker who likes to keep busy, get a bar staff job over the summer. These no-experience-required jobs will have you on your feet, pulling pints and bussing tables. So get a summer hospitality job if you’re interested in boosting your communication and coordination skills.

How about working in logistics as your temporary part-time job? There’s lots of variation in this industry, as it organises and manages the distribution of goods - the backbone of modern society. Get a summer warehouse job to keep fit; you’ll be moving around heavy cargo, so you’ll get that summer bod in no time. One of the most lucrative summer logistics roles is driving work.

There are many open vacancies as meal delivery riders across the country, if you’re interested in giving your calves a work-out. Being a driver is an ideal summer job for students, too, as you can keep this job year-round and just pick up some hours over the weekend whenever you need a cash boost.
