Very few would imagine they could find such an opportunity working with UK Parking Control as an attendant. If meeting new people, working outdoors and self-management fits your work style, this just might be a good fit for you.The Freedom of Working Outdoors Some of the best jobs are outside the cubicle. Not being tied to an office chair and desk can be exhilarating. While workers may fantasize about being outside throughout their work day, you have a chance to actually live that dream.

Most attendant booths are in a visible location where you can breathe in nature.Meet New People and Befriend the RegularsEveryday can be a new day as people come and go.
