Bar work involves completing a variety of jobs from cleaning tables and countertops and serving drinks, to taking payments and delivering meals to customers. It is often a relentless job, especially if you end up working the Friday night shift at your local Wetherspoons on campus. As long as you’re over 18, there shouldn’t be anything stopping you from getting a part-time job at a bar or pub. There are no qualifications required to do this kind of work but some experience in a customer service-related job in the past will probably stand you in good stead. Be warned though, most bar jobs will require a fair amount of flexibility and a need to work late into the night. Still, if you’re struggling for money (as many students often do at some point), bars and pubs often have a lot of overtime available. Just don’t let the paper chase affect your studies!
