Weekend Jobs Overview

Although we may think of the working week as strictly Monday to Friday, the reality is that a variety of weekend jobs are crucial to keeping the economy going. Living busy lives, many of us save the weekend for errands and leisure, so for businesses to cater to this demand and operate on Saturdays and Sundays, they need a workforce of dedicated people looking to leave traditional hours behind.

For workers, these roles can be an opportunity to earn extra income from a second job. In fact, according to the Office for National Statistics, around 31 million people in the UK have a second job, and many of those will be worked on weekends. Weekend work could also be your sole gig and a great way to fit your career around other commitments such as study, family, and creative pursuits.

How Much Does Weekend Work Pay?

How much you earn in a weekend job depends on the industry you’re in, the expected qualifications and experience, and your responsibilities. Because weekend work is often part-time work, your salary will be calculated pro-rata of the full wage for your job description during normal hours.

However, some jobs may offer a financial incentive to work outside the traditional 9-5 Monday to Friday schedule. This will be at the company’s discretion and may come in the form of a higher pay rate or money to cover your meals and travel costs. Do some research to learn what you could expect to earn in the position you’re seeking.
