WEEKEND JOBS IN LONDON
When Monday to Friday is out of the question, we know where the jobs are that suit your availability.
Why find weekend work with Staff Heroes?
What makes a weekend worker a Hero?
Ah, the Saturday (and Sunday) staff. You might think of them as the part time cavalry, the support workers for the store’s/bar’s/restaurant’s full time employees, but there’s an important thing to remember about the weekend team: they probably do more business and take more money than anyone else.
In short, what you do as a weekend worker matters, and that’s why our clients want to find just the right Heroes for the job. So in a market that’s full of people eager to nab a weekend position, here is how you make yourself indispensable:
Make the job your own: Weekend jobs in London are typically busy, bustling and hectic – whether you’re waiting on, working in retail or tending a bar. These sectors typically have a high turnover of staff, so people who show passion and commitment to go with their skill and experience really stick out for all the right reasons. Own the job from the outset, and you will often find repeat bookings come you way.
Don’t be a Saturday worker: By that, we mean, don’t be the person who knows this job is only temporary and treats it as such. Many of our Heroes have started out with weekend jobs in London that have evolved and grown into something more. So treat every new opportunity as a chance to make a great impression.
Join in: You may not be around for the bulk of the week and you may not be permanent, but you have more chance of being a regular weekend worker when you involve yourself in the team.

Weekend jobs in London – the Q&A
What hours will I be expected to work?
You choose your availability, although the greater the range of hours you can do, the more employers in your chosen sector may be able to offer hours to suit your preference. If you can, try to avoid limiting your opportunities and match your focus to your availability. If you can work on Saturdays and Sundays but only during the daytime, for example, you may find more opportunities in retail than in bar work.
Who are your weekend jobs in London for?
We are fortunate to have a huge range of people who become Staff Heroes, and for all sorts of reasons. You may be looking for weekend jobs in London because you are studying or working another job during the week. You may have family commitments that make Saturday and Sunday the only viable workdays. You may be thinking about a career change and using weekend working as a way of building experience. Or you may be a retiree looking for fresh experiences and new opportunities at a time of the week that suits you.
How do I choose the right temporary weekend job for me?
Think about your availability, your skillset and the things you enjoy doing. Consider how comfortable you are in customer-facing situations or in pressurised environments and choose a role that’s the closest match for your capabilities and preferences.

"Recruiting temp staff in the hospitality industry is a massive headache for everyone, yet nothing has been done about it from a technology standpoint. Temp Staff turnover is significant creating high recruitment costs and this area is screaming for innovation. Staff Heroes have got it spot on and are on to something which is going to be big”Olly Etridge - First Restaurant Group
"The admin and wasted time from recruiting and managing temp staff is a big problem for all pubs and restaurants. Having an agency in the middle is not ideal as it causes friction and delays... and obviously there are costs involved. If Staff Heroes can provide temp staff on demand and automate the supply and management end to end then they are going to be massively successful”Bruce Newman - SA Brain and Company Ltd
"Many hospitality businesses are still turning to traditional channels such as job boards for temp staffing. This is only one step in the end to end temporary staffing solution and if Staff Heroes can automate from sourcing to payroll this will save everyone a huge amount of time, leaving us to get on with our jobs. A huge improvement for temp staffing!”Alex Davenport Jones - The Porch House
