I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need…

Where would you get a part time job in Ormskirk?

Well, there’s loads. For starters EHU displays all their current vacancies on the student information section on Blackboard (the university portal) and on the main website when you log in with your student ID. Some of these positions could be helping students on moving in days or being a student guide on open days. It’s easy money and doesn’t affect your study timetable, so why not?

You then have job opportunities in Ormskirk, with local pubs and food establishments constantly needing staff. Christmas jobs in supermarkets are common, as well as branded shops like New Look hiring over the festive period.

If you’re willing to use some of your wages up on transport then there is a wider scope of jobs in Liverpool (25 minutes away on the train). I have friends who managed to get Christmas temp jobs easily (and some have been kept on and made permanent staff). Likewise to Liverpool, Southport is 20 minutes away on the bus and can also provide more jobs.

Another option is volunteering. I know for students money can be very tight and the thought of waking up early on a Saturday is bad enough, let alone without getting paid… but if you haven’t got a lot of experience on your CV it’s a good way to get some. It’s also nice to give back to your local community, gain some self esteem and it keeps you busy on boring weekends. You wouldn’t need to travel to Liverpool or Southport, as Ormskirk has plenty of charity shops- which are constantly looking for help- some of which are YMCA, Cancer Research and Barnardos.

Until next time…
