If you need your part-time job to make £18,600 now, you must not leave your job until the visa is issued. If you don't need it now but only used it to bring up your previous (last 12 months') income to the required level, then you can.
You can apply under Cat A if you have been with your main employer for 6 months, and on average you have earned £18,600 (by taking the average of your 6-month pay).

In that case you cannot apply, as you no longer meet the condition of actually earning the required amount at the time of reapplication. So you need to carry on in your PT job or start another job. Under Cat B, you can apply as soon as you start your second job, provided in the last 12 calendar months, you have actually earned the required amount, including the time when you were only doing one job.
