    Someone give me ideas for night jobs......pleeeeease xx

    I've been working nights as a home carer for the past 18 months but there's not a lot of work at mo. The problem is, wherever I am I have to leave at about 6am and can't start till 9pm due to hubby's shifts and having the kids. I've tried care homes, hotel reception, petrol stations, supermarkets even Maccy D's with no luck......
    I don't wanna sound greedy but I really don't want to be working for minimum wage either. I wonder if you guys can think of something else....pleeeeeeeeease xx

    Oh.....and not the obvious ....before someone ppes up with that lol

    as does Paper girl
    Mobile Security - I'm a weed
    Burglar.....Hmmm... will keep my options open

    Thanks hun x

    Mobile security, you don't tackle anyone, more keep an eye out on places covered, normally over industrial estates for burglaries and report them as they are happening. Being a weed won't matter, I think you do need some form of SIA licence though now.

    Oh lol.....I was just picturing my self straddled over some 6'6" bloke holding a sawn off shotgun and wearing a stripy suit strugling to pin him to the ground X)
    Seriously though....will look into the licence thingy, thanks x

    how about royal mail, my partner works there doing evenings in the sorting office but im sure he said the night shift is 10pm till 6am. not sure if it will be the same at every royal mail centre though.

    think the licence is about £250 and last for 3 years.I remember the security on our front desk moaning about paying for them.

    Ah, not sure I wanna do that then...especially as I'm not 100% sure it's gonna be my kinda thing! Thanks for the info hun x

    NHS? like A&E receptionist

    one of them people who sits and watches cctv cameras in city centres and liases with the police when crap kicks off like you see on those itv4/virgin progs- not sure if its the same as mobile security

    Had to take my lad to A+E one night a month back. If they don't pay at least a grand a night I wouldn't touch it. The morons and drunks you get in there are unbelievable. . .

    I know! We took my daughter once at late night, its a totally different scary world out there in the A&E reception X) ....one after another rough looking guys coming with bloody wounds!

    Receptions are not alone though, could see security guards actively monitoring.

    All security persons must have a licence on display, strange as I'm exempt from having mine on display

    Door person/supervisor(Bouncer in the old days)

    Women are always in demand and its worlds away from what it used to be

    Now there's a thought lol........like I said earlier, good to keep my options open I surpose X)

    Curb Crawl Bait (_;)

    Ok, agreed... bit OTT

    Any call centres local? I know some operate 24hours. How you would find out though I dont know. Other than that drop into your local jobcentre and see if they can suggest anything and also employment agencies? I know they can be a pain to sign upto but might be able to help?

    Warehouse/Factory nightwork aswell? Theres also cleaning nightwork

    Hope you find something

    My neighbour used to fill shelves in our 24 hour Tesco at night. She always used to get home just after 6am so I presume she finished at 6. Not sure what time she started though. I am sure a lot of the supermarkets must do this.

    Nah, you don't really wanna go down that road. That's usually a very last resort. Think if your kids ever found out.......


    (Soz, missed the 'obvious' reference in the op, but thought I'd leave it anyway as it took some editing on my mobile :D)

    Stuffing envelopes?
    Mind numbingly boring but I heard that the pay is above min wage.

    Ooo, had a thought, are you near an airport or similar? I am and there is always have hotel work come up locally, even if it's just reception or similar.

    Are the kids at school during the day or at home?

    I think bossy is trying to point out that she has young children who are not schooling age so she has home all day, so working in a school is out , as for the childminding there are loads of rules and regs , qualifications to be a childminder .

    If the kids are at home what is the op going to do, work all night, then stay up all day with the kids, then go back to work on the night?
