looking to try a part time hospitality job, not sure what the best options are?

Stellar Community member Posts: 131 Pioneering
so as part of my prep to leave the UK i've been thinking about trying to get a part-time, hospitality job to help me broaden my horizons for what i could do abroad once i'm gone.

i'm planning long term to work remotely for myself and/or others with minimal interaction with in-person colleagues, but i know relying on this only is not gonna be possible for many years. especially given to save money i'll likely need to do in person work, like assist in a hostel.

not sure what's the best option to move forward with this plan. i know i would need a quiet environment (like a coffee shop in off-peak hours, or a library) and not full time/unsocial hours under any circumstances.

in many ways, it's quite similar to returning to work as if i was planning to stay here as a disabled person, so i figured it'd be good to ask here. would love some advice if anyone's been in a similar position.

    I'm glad to hear the plan is coming together nicely @stellar ! I'd say pub work, or coffee shop work is always a good call for when travelling around, maybe even remote call centre work?  Though I think most businesses would be hiring people for the busiest times and save the slower paced shifts for people who've been there longer. I think many places want you to "earn" those quieter shifts.
