    Default Second job

    Need to pick up some extra work for next 12 months or so.

    Ideas I've had currently are:

    * Event stewarding (Via G4S)
    * Weekend Asda/Tesco delivery driving.
    * Other forms of weekend delivery driving avoiding take away cunts, something more robust!


    I don't want pub work etc, but it's tricky to find just weekend work on its own.

    I'm based in Manchester.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Not curretnly a higher rate tax payer, but if I worked x4 weekend days a month, I probably would shortly, so this'll obviously impact my earnings!

    Asda home shopping delivery is hard work for minimum wage, plus everyone hates you, car drivers, customers etc, and you are out in all weathers, never mind trying to find addresses in the dark lol.

    Good luck

    Thanks to ilscuro

    Delivering for take away company's. Takes a lot of toil on your car but find a busy one and you'll make around 150 a night and it's usually cash in hand.
    I understand and accept that some people hold opinions that are different to my own. Living in a free and democratic society, I fully embrace and respect their right to be wrong.

    Interesting, thanks chaps.

    None travel take away delivery is a no go, as I have a company car that's exluded use from other events such as delivery, hire & reward. So either somewhere with own trasport, or something not involving transport.

    One of my buddies does G4S, picks what he wants to do, generally stands around not doing too much but does get into music places etc so mildly entertaining.

    Track marshalling any good for you?
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    I think bookies take on part time, so many of them about might be worth a go if you can put up with a load of cunts in your shop.

    I remember when I was a student I worked for Controlled Event Solutions for a while - they did the security for Old Trafford as well as a few other sites. Added bonus is getting to watch the football for free (if you are working on the ground on a match day).

    Thanks to Over Carl
