Looking for Extra Work This Christmas? Try These Industries

Christmas is always a busy time of year for recruitment in Surrey, with new openings being posted frequently. Of course, not only are employers looking for more hands on deck, but candidates like yourself are also looking for a little extra spending money for the festive season, whether it’s for more generous or indulgent things. So, just which sectors are likely to be hiring this time of year?



‘Tis the season for work parties and family do’s, meaning you’ll find plenty of openings for catering, waiting, and other roles in hospitality. Depending on your role, you may be able to make even more than you bargained for if you manage to perform particularly well when it comes to tips (and the festive season is also one of generosity, so you never know).


Customer Service

An increase in sales and business during the Christmas period means that employers are always looking for extra people to field calls, answer emails and deal with other customer queries and problems.


Warehouse / Stock

The run up to Christmas is one of the busiest time of year, with everyone rushing to buy gifts for friends, family, and co-workers. Naturally, this means that all this extra stock needs sorting, and busier than usual warehouses need all the extra pairs of hands they can get.



Retail generally has a lot of openings throughout the year for sales assistants, but the holiday season will see even more openings and more chances for overtime.



Another job that’ll get you out of the office! Increased sales and demand means that you could be delivering stock to local outlets, or delivering packages to customer homes.
