Mixing drinks and chatting to inebriated customers may not be every person’s idea of the perfect job but to some, bar tender jobs are exactly what they want from a career. Apart from the late start to the working day and small fortunes in tips at times, a job as a bartender is rewarding if you are a people person. Whether you are looking for a bartender job in a nightclub or at the local pub, you need to have skills and references to get started in this line of work.
Temporary jobs in South Africa are usually easier to find as South African employers are often less enthusiastic about hiring employees on a full time basis due to labour disputes, union demands and full time employee benefits. While a temporary job does mean that you will get less benefits than a full time employee, your rights as a worker is still protected to some degree. Before you begin your search, decide on what type of temporary jobs will suit you based on your restrictions and needs – maybe you just need a holiday job or a part time night job.
