I have a full time job, but I'm thinking about getting an evening/weekend job in Edinburgh or West Lothian to supplement my income. (Maybe 12 - 15 hours a week, but I'm flexible about this). Any suggestions re companies, employment agencies, types of jobs, etc? Many thanks.

    A friend of mine's works twilight hours in a solicitors office as a legal secretary (really just audio typing). You don't need to be trained in legal jargon (it helps) and I think they pay around £7-£8 an hour. Guess you could maybe write or phone around some in your area if you have typing/computer skills? Hope this helps.

    That's a great idea - I've never thought of that before.

    I can type ok (not touch type though) and my spelling/computer skills are quite good too. I'll phone around.

    I understand Sky are "downsizing" and people have to apply for their own jobs shortly.
