Applying For Jobs - Asking For Part Time Hours
I suffer from a mental health disability in the form of general anxiety. I had a breakdown in 2014 and I have been trying to hold down employment ever since. I was lucky to gain some work experience via the Jobcentre back in Feb doing some gardening work. I discovered that I really enjoyed the work and the physical aspects of the job had a huge positive impact on reducing my anxiety. I want to apply for horticultural related work in plant nursery/garden centre, however these roles tend to recruit people on full time hour contracts. I am considering writing to prospective employers asking whether they would consider employing someone part time, on a two days a week basis. However, I am not sure how to word my application. I have the right experience and qualifications, I just need a lucky break to get my foot in the door somewhere. Has anyone had experience of making a job application like this, or do you have any advice on how I could word my application?
