Your money-making expert. Financial journalist, TV and radio personality.
Calling all freshers! We’ve found a perfect way to get some of your booze paid for, while making extra money on top.
If you’re 18 or 19 and look pretty young for your age, you could get paid to buy alcohol by Serve Legal. This firm is dedicated to checking whether staff in pubs and shops ask for ID when selling age-restricted goods.
It’s a flexible job and you can take on as many or as few hours as you like, and you get to explore your local area at the same time. Could this be the dream student job?
If pubs, restaurants and off-licences are caught selling alcohol to underage customers they will face a huge penalty. This is why businesses go to Serve Legal. They facilitate undercover ‘visitors’ to go into businesses to be served.
It’s just like mystery shopping with one key difference. You’re ensuring that the person serving you is obeying the law and checking your ID.
You will buy an age-restricted product from a supermarket, bar, pub or club in the UK and Ireland. These jobs pay £20-50 (with bonuses if the visit is urgent).
Serve Legal has active social media accounts, posting up helpful videos and tips on Facebook and Twitter – so you can make the most of the role and earn as much as possible.
Serve Legal need dedicated young people. You will be called on when needed and may need to carry out the work in a detailed and focused manner. You will need to pick up on any specifics they need to know about your experience. Finally, to make the most of this opportunity you will be self-motivated.
If you reckon you have the right go-getting attitude, and are flexible enough to take on assignments around your studies, you could be earning money buying alcohol in no time.
It couldn’t be easier to join their team!
Just head to their registration page and create an account. First, make sure you’ve got a recent clear photo of yourself, and scanned copies of your passport and photo ID.
You have to be 18 or 19 to join, but you can apply two months in advance of your 18th birthday, so you can start visiting pubs as soon as you’re a legal drinker! And once you’ve started working and are bringing back the lovely libations, get your friends and flatmates together for a night in bonding with drinking games…
It’s a flexible, interesting job with decent pay and you walk away with free alcohol – sound good? Apply ASAP to start earning.
