Part time Jobs in Cornwall

It can seem challenging to find a job that fits in with your life commitments. We are aware that 9 to 5 from Monday to Friday does not suit everyone. In fact, statistics show that the number of employees working over 45 hours a week is in decline. It is common for people to need hours which fit around personal factors including childcare.

If you’re hunting for a part time job in Cornwall what are some common sectors to find flexible hours and how can AllCornwallJobs aid you in finding a part time job in Cornwall?

Common Part Time Jobs in Cornwall

Part time jobs in Cornwall are found in all sectors but experience has shown that certain sectors frequently have a greater number of flexible positions than others, particularly when you need a part time job with less experience required. Here are some sectors that we recommend you make your first port of call:

Customer Services

It is not uncommon for employees to require flexible customer service workers. One specific area often looking to take on part time staff is telesales so if you possess a fantastic telephone manner, are good with people or don’t mind cold calling then you could be able to find a suitable part time job in Cornwall in our Customer Services and Telesales sector.


Small companies in particular often require a part time administrator to be responsible for their administration. Larger companies sometimes also require a part time administrator to job share. This may involve working 2 or 3 full days a week or several hours each day. So if you are well organised with good computer literacy you may want to think about a part time administration job in Cornwall.


Shops and supermarkets often have a range of flexible part time jobs available. As shops are often open longer than ‘9 to 5’ and on Saturday you could find hours that will fit with your commitments. So if you have great customer service skills and enjoy dealing with the public then ensure you check our Retail sector for the most recent jobs.

Public Sector

Don’t forget to look at Cornwall County Council / North Cornwall District Council as they commonly have flexible part time jobs in a very varied range of areas.
