Manual Labour

Hello all,

Would anyone have any ideas about places where manual labour is needed? I'm talking about the kind that requires no qualifications, languages or particular skills. Perhaps factory work, back of house admin, airport baggage handlers, or something along the lines.

While I'm searching for the perfect job, I'd like to keep busy and perhaps earn a bit of money.

Re: Manual Labour

Is there a Job Bus group in your area?

The one I know of is in Meilen, but I believe there are similar groups elsewhere in the canton. The Job Bus is a kind of day-labororer set-up - you meet at an arranged point each day (in this case, the Uetikon Bahnhof), and are assigned work as available. Most is outside work - moving, unskilled construction or demolition work, garden work, forestry, etc. I think this is a kind of social program - in the Meilen one, one needs to be a resident of the Bezirk, have a valid permit if a foreigner, and one does need to understand some basic German. One is insured through the organization.

Perhaps you might look for something similar in your area?

Great idea. I spent a few minutes googling and found plenty of references to Job-Buses in Zurich, but no concrete info. Then I thought to try an EF search instead.... and bingo, there it was!
