Heading south: where to find a job for the summer and how much they will pay for it

Farmers with open arms await not only experienced specialists, but also hard-working ones.

One of my acquaintances takes three months of unpaid vacation in May and travels south. But not to rest, but to work. Summer is the hottest time for him: not in terms of weather, but in terms of income. In general, he works as a salesman in a Moscow store, and by the sea in Gelendzhik he transforms into a peerless barbecue, which vacationers always line up for.

– I work in a private hotel, where they always wait for me, – he says. – For several years I have settled there. I live and eat there for free. During the season I earn three times more per month than at my main job!

There are quite a few of these “seasonal workers” in the summer in our south. Every year there are more and more tourists, there are not enough local residents to serve them, so there are no extra seaside workers during the season. If only he was conscientious and didn’t shoot “free for fun”.

However, we will return to the sea. Ilgiz Valinurov, a well-known Russian labor consultant, author of books on career and personal search, is sure that there are always seasonal vacancies on the market. But the summer dictates the qualification of him. Ilgiz listed us the top 5 industries waiting for their summer jobs.

1. Agriculture. And during the planting season, and during the harvest, and when processing the fields, workers are urgently needed. Farmers with open arms expect not only experienced specialists, for example, for service teams, but also workers in general.

2. Spas. Entertainers, rescuers, ice cream vendors, souvenirs, street fast food – the list goes on and on.

3. Cafes and restaurants. In the summer, public catering opens open terraces and recruits additional staff: waiters, cooks, administrators, etc. You can do it without experience: students, unemployed and everyone, everyone, everyone will do.

4. Tour guides are especially in demand in summer. Travel agencies are hiring more guides to accompany groups. This category includes entertainers, diving instructors, horse riding, hiking.

5. There is a growing demand for specialists in the installation and maintenance of air conditioners, which, as a rule, are used exclusively in the summer.

– In addition, pickers of berries, herbs, wild plants are in the price in summer, – adds Ilgiz Valinurov. – In the same Karelia, you can earn up to 200-250 thousand rubles per season.

And yet, according to the Avito.Rabota service, summer is also a hot time in the construction sector. Already, the number of vacancies in this area has increased by 18%. Hands in the range are required: handyman, construction workers (painters, plasterers, finishers, carpenters, etc.), qualified specialists (estimators, designers, engineers).

Require import substitute

If we talk about the labor market in general today, then the most popular, according to Valinurov, will be vacancies related to import substitution. This applies both to ordinary specialists and to top managers who will develop domestic technologies and products. And in a variety of areas.

– One of the engines of growth (the most important for the development of industries – Ed.) of the Russian economy is agribusiness. After him, information technology and mechanical engineering, explains Ilgiz Valinurov. – A lot now depends on IT specialists, especially the digitization of production. Despite the sanctions, the number of IT vacancies increased by 20%.


a place in the sun

But you must admit that jobs at sea seem the most attractive. Worked, bathed – on the embankment; worked, bathed – on the embankment … Romance!

Therefore, the South Sea vacancies are now more than sufficient. Job search sites require specialists in at least 40 specialties. Many of them – with free room and board during the period of employment.

First of all, maids in guest houses with salaries from 30 to 40 thousand rubles. There are also more profitable offers, but already from higher category hotels with strict requirements such as knowledge of languages, etiquette and even impeccable appearance.

In second place are dishwashers and cooks. Here the payment for one shift is from 1000 to 2000 rubles.

In the third – hotel managers. Salary or shift (about 2500 rubles per shift), or monthly (30 – 40 thousand per month). Higher education, competent speech, work experience, knowledge of reporting programs and recommendations are welcome here. Because the manager has to work with money.

In the fourth – guides and animators. Salary – from 1000 rubles per shift.

On the fifth – electricians and plumbers. The average salary is 35-40 thousand rubles a month.

How not to run out of salary

Unfortunately, not all temporary employers are clean on hand. Sometimes when hiring an employee, they promise to pay for the job at the end of the season. Yulia Chistyakova, Head of the Intellectual Property Department of the Sovet Legal Group, advises: if you are offered such a condition, you should be on your guard! And at the same time, take into account several important points in advance.

1. First of all, you should get as much information as possible about your potential employer or client from open and official sources on the Internet. Fortunately, now people are not too lazy to write reviews.

2. Complete all documents before starting work. Depending on the nature, type, duration of work, relationships can be formalized by means of an employment contract or a civil law contract (contract for the provision of services, employment contract, etc.). Carefully study all the conditions of the document, if doubtful points are found, it is better to contact a lawyer.

3. When concluding an employment contract, pay special attention to mandatory points, such as:

– position,

– job description,

– Workplace,

– the amount and method of payment of wages,

– the start date of work, the duration of the employment contract (in the case of a fixed-term employment contract),

– hours of work and rest,

– guarantees and indemnities,

– Working conditions in the workplace.

It is also necessary to familiarize yourself with the job description, internal work regulations, remuneration regulations and other local acts of the organization.

4. In order not to be cheated with the payment, do not start work before signing the contract.

5. Be sure to pay attention to the presence of penalties in the contract.
