Struggling to find a part time job?

part time jobs

Are you having difficulty finding a part time job in Basingstoke? Are you a parent or a student? Are you partly self- employed or have a part time personal interest? Maybe you just simply only need to work part time hours.

Sometimes it can be hard to pinpoint jobs that have part time or reduced hours. Even some of the big internet job boards don’t always allow you to choose part time jobs filter option. LinkedIn does not offer a part time job search function to date either.

As recruitment experts, we know that there are many part time jobs available in Basingstoke, Hampshire and the surrounding areas. Sometimes it can be hard to match candidate and position, due to the variables of the placement and candidate requirements. For example perhaps you can only do school hours, and the part time receptionist job you apply for requires three full days a week to cover the whole working day as job share. Or maybe you study on a Monday and Tuesday and a sales company needs a sales executive to work on those days because that’s when they receive the majority or their leads. So it’s all about finding the perfect match! (Need help?)

Having said that, most companies are moving fast towards flexible working these days, which is great news for those who require specific hours for a part time role.

If you are having trouble searching the perfect part time job vacancy, here are a few things you can do:

  • Visit your local job agencies and register for the part time hours you require
  • Use the online job boards that allow you to filter by part time jobs
  • Approach companies directly by email, letter, telephone, social media or in person to ask for part time work
  • Check press and publications that advertise jobs and look out for part time positions

It’s worth remembering that companies might be flexible on the hours required, so if you are the right person for the job then you may be able negotiate specifically what hours you work.
