      Hi there

      I mentioned this in another thread so hopefully I’m not inundating Rest Less with this but I started a little side business just before COVID which I’ve been doing from home online during this crazy time.  Cost me £50 to get started.  No stock or product to sell.  Totally my own boss.  You can work on it as much or as little as you like.  The company has been around for 20+ years, listed on the FTSE 250, doing well through now the third recession.  Happy to show anyone what I’m doing with absolutely no obligations.  Basic computer skills an advantage.  Lots of help and support getting started from myself and others.

      Hi. Yes, supermarkets are top-of-the-list at the moment when it comes to ‘who’s hiring?’ Not sure how active you are online, but setting-up job alerts on company pages and job sites would be a good move. When it comes to job sites, then Indeed would be a good starting point. You can search in a specific location, and focus on temp work, and then save this search so that any new jobs that get posted are emailed to you directly on a daily or weekly basis. Happy to help on this if you have any questions. NM

      Look at Supermarkets there seems to  be many part time jobs available with a wide range of types of position to be filled and with a bit of luck there will be one fairly near to you.

      Good Luck.

      I’ve been looking at supermarket extra staff and veg growers  so far.

      Hi Trish. I’m in job search mode myself at the moment, and I’m sure you’re fully aware that the job market is pretty flat as recruitment for most businesses is currently ‘on-hold.’ There’s a lot of different channels out there where you might find sight of local temp work – where have you been looking so far?
