"As a council we will always look to do all we can to help people into work. At this time of year, with Christmas just around the corner, lots of people are looking at ways to earn a bit of extra money.

"These casual vacancies could be a great way of doing just that, and we would urge people to come along and have a look at what is on offer.”
