Are you looking for part time work around town over the summer holidays?

Local businesses often place adverts in their windows. Don’t just hand over your CV and leave, be prepared to talk to them about their business. Show that you know what they do and are interested. Pick a time when they are not too busy and have time to talk!

Just the other day I found these tasty retail jobs whilst shopping ( note the Kamsons is in Hove, the others in the North Laines ).
