Welcome back to Broke in Bristol – & beyond the blog that helps you save money, make money and invest in your future. Over the next few weeks and months, the blog will be taking a different course as I'll be doing all I can to share information that I hope people will find valuable during the Coronavirus crisis.
Even though this started as a health crisis, I know that a lot of people are worried about their finances. Sadly, some people I know have already been made redundant, are on zero hours contracts or are self-employed and don't know how they will make ends meet for their families over the coming months.
Right now, supermarkets are looking for extra temporary workers who can start straight away and reports on social media suggest that you could be accepted for a role in just a few hours. All the supermarkets are hiring and the rates of pay are: Aldi £9.48 an hour, Asda (varies on role), Iceland £9.10, Lidl £9.30, M&S £10.60, Tesco £9.30, Sainsbury's £9, Waitrose £9.35. You can also try Amazon £9.50 an hour, Deliveroo £10, Just Eat £9, Ocado £8.43 or UberEats £11.14 per hour.
I've also heard that British farmers are urgently appealing for Brits to work on farms as travel restrictions and tighter border controls have had a huge impact on the number of seasonal workers able to travel to the UK. Recruitment specialist Hops Labour Solutions has launched a new scheme with the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs, encouraging people to apply for these jobs on farms.
Alternatively, if you're self-motivated and looking for a self-employed role that you can fit in around other commitments then send an email to email@example.com with your best contact telephone number. This is a fabulous opportunity for a FTSE 250 company which can be done from home with full training and support provided.
