2. Promotional work
Popular brands we use everyday run campaigns to boost awareness of their campaigns and need casual staff to spread the word. Where these are held vary but you can find yourself at a festival or even at a major sporting event! You can pick what days you can work and when you can’t. Ideal for the hard working student who doesn’t mind time on their feet!
