Newsagents/Local shop windows
This is where you can often find casual or part-time vacancies such as child minding, gardening, cleaning. If you have a particular skill you could always advertise this way
Using your contacts Most vacancies are never actually advertised but rely on staff to spread the word to people they may know. Tell your friends, neighbors, relations that you are looking for work and you may be lucky.
You could also contact firms ‘on spec’ either by a phone call or by writing a letter and enclosing your CV.
