Make Extra Money At Christmas
For many people Christmas is a difficult time income wise. So I have put together a brief guide on some roles that maybe available.
Below are some ideas on how to Make Extra Money At Christmas.
While these jobs are during the Christmas season they could earn you some income and have some fun at the same time.
Please note I cannot guarantee that these jobs have not yet been filled.
Fancy being a Santa?
The real Santa as we know lives in the North Pole. He simply cannot get round to see everyone (especially on a busy Saturday afternoon in a shopping centre!) so he has some representatives who can be Santa (or even an elf)
Great Grottos has an advert (see below) for Santas, Elfs and Grotto Managers.
Duties for Santa include greeting families, giving out gifts, posing for pictures and asking children what they want for Christmas.
Experience is not essential.
Minimum age is 28 and full training is given.
They have full time and part time posts also available.
Working in a store or bar
If being a Santa or Elf is not your thing then why not consider working in a bar or a store.
Why not check out your local area as many stores and bars will be looking for Christmas staff.
Below are some stores where they are looking for staff (correct at time of checking)
Marks and Spencer
More Retail Jobs
Deliver the post with Royal Mail
Royal Mail are currently looking for Christmas staff.
On their website they currently have the following vacancies
- Mail Sorters
- Parcel Delivery Drivers
- LGV & MGV Drivers
- Customer Services
Ice Rink Marshalls
If you love Ice Skating why not consider being an Ice Rink Marshall. Below are two adverts one for Somerset house and One for Hampton Court. However a quick search should find many more in your area.
While these are only a few job roles I have seen.
It is important to remember that even though these are Christmas jobs you still need to be a good team player. So do not act like this is ‘just a temp job’. Why not think of it as a new job trial. So take care and attention to the job you do as if it was a perm role. First impressions last and your Manager could think of you when a perm role comes up
Remember a lot of the businesses will be open later than usual over Christmas so you could find you are working early and late shifts and this could include the weekends.
Depending on the role you choose you could be working Christmas Day and Boxing Day and even New Years Day especially if Shop or Bar work. Christmas is especially busy for these Companies.
I hope you found this blog post useful and if you get a temp Christmas job I hope you enjoy it.
