Looking for work over the holidays? Finding seasonal work is a great way to earn some extra money and it may even be the first step towards a long-term career.
On-call have more than a hundred positions to fill in the months leading up to Christmas. With recruitment currently in full swing, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Notts TV to put together the top five tips for making sure your application stands out when you’re looking for the perfect role:
EXPERIENCE RELEVANT TO THE ROLE
Have you got the matching skillset for the role? Make sure you check the job requirements and that your application reflects all your relevant experience – it’ll make things easier for the recruiter to match the right applicant to the right position.
DETAIL YOUR AVAILABILITY CLEARLY
Are you flexible when it comes to working hours? Are you prepared to work evenings/nights and weekends? Make sure you highlight that in your application in order to be shortlisted for the appropriate positions.
If you’re able to start a seasonal job with very short notice, or even immediately make sure you make that clear.
OWN TRANSPORT IS ALWAYS GOOD
Seasonal roles can be all over the county, so being able to move around during the cold winter months is always a bonus.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT JOB
Make sure you choose seasonal roles that you have an interest in. There are many available, so take your time to cherry pick your favourites – just in case you’re offered permanent work at the end of the season.
On-Call Recruitment have hundreds of opportunities available across the county for seasonal roles. From packing gifts to agricultural work there are opportunities available in the Mansfield and Greater Ashfield areas.
