early bird or a night owl?

Most people are either an early bird or a night owl, which are you?

Early birds have never heard of a lie in, they are awake at the crack of dawn and start the day with a spring in their step.

Night owls cringe at the thought of an alarm first thing in the morning and remain groggy until midday, they are often only aware of the world around them from the afternoon and can stay awake all night.

Jobs for night owls

  • Bar staff – Start work in the early evening and work through the night, often bar staff are among those you see who haven’t been home yet when you are off to work in the early morning. For night owls this could be the ultimate opportunity to work during your peak hours and sleep through the dreaded mornings.
