    The jobcentre is a :knob:
    The website won't let me search for seasonal summer jobs only specific bollox about what job i want (animal care? performing arts?:mad: )
    I want any job as long as it starts on the 14th July and ends in sept (to fill in my weeks when i am not working at the college i work at)
    I can't get to the jobcentre as it is too far from work and i can't get out for that long!!!
    So........
    Anyona wanna give me a summer job? or know anyone that will? Pleeeeeease help a desperate bear out!!!! I will do anything as long as it is full time........except anything to do with shit ( i was offered a job by my mate cleaning human sewage silos but i did not want to spend summer in there you get me?!!!)

    In Aus we have privately owned sites to find jobs, like this ---> http://www.seek.com.au/uk/

    sure you have some similar sites, you could find with a bit of googling.
    its hard getting a full-time job as opposed to casual, for sure mate.
    do you have hospitality experience, cause you can often just roll up with a decent CV/resume for them

    hehehehe well..........
    I used to but as i work in a college, i can lose my job and get myself on the "national register of dangerous adults" if i get caught doing anything with drugs or kiddie fiddling (thats my two favourite pastimes out then :teeth:)

    And mesh..... yeah i have lookedainto private sites/agencies etc but they usually take a quid or so of your hourly wage and they cannot help with seasonal summer shizzle!!! AAAAGGGH!

    I know man, i once worked for this agency and was being paid £5.00 an hour and found out the "real" staff who weren't on the agency got £7.50!!!!
    Needless to say i quit that one straight off!!!
    I need money to eat at the moment not partys!!!!
    All i live on at the moment is Double Deckers and coffee!!!

    I did actually ask the deal with benefits etc but again another dead end. It turns out i can get about £250 a month for various things (including being a "key worker" whatever the hell that is!!) BUT.......
    and its a big BUT...........
    The benefits would be added to my taxable income as i work and there fore would send me into a much higher tax bracket meaning i would actually get less than i get now without them........
    Go Figure!!!!:mad:
