There are Christmas jobs available from October onwards. Early Autumn is a good time to start looking, particularly if you would like work as Santa or an elf in department stores and shopping centres.
It used to be just the Post Office and high street stores that brought in extra workers at this time, but now the online retailers need them too. On its busiest day Amazon receives 47 orders per-second (no wonder they’re taking on extra staff!)
It’s an insight into the way internet shopping is changing our lives, as increasingly more jobs are created to deal with online demand rather than typical shop work. This is particularly significant for young people who might find this is there first step on to the career ladder.
The Christmas post is huge with all the cards and presents being delivered, so Royal Mail always needs extra help in the run-up to the big day.
They have a mix of full and part time indoor sorting positions on early, late and night shifts available from early November through until 23rd December at a number of sites across the UK.
If you look at their website here you will see PAGES of vacancies in all parts of the UK. These jobs do go fairly quickly so it’s a good idea to apply for them now to be in with a chance.
Rates vary from £7.50-£10.55 an hour depending what you are doing and where you are doing it.
