Before you start

Working Part-Time

If you are looking for part-time work during term time, read our e-zine: Guide to Working Part-time.

Remember; competition for the opportunities that are available can be high, so an effective application is essential.

Do take time to look at the information and resources we have on:

  • Applications
  • Interviews
  • Assessment centres

This includes a range of videos, help sheets & guides, online tests etc.

These should help you to produce high quality applications and prepare for any interviews you may have.

On-campus recruitment

The Employment & Recruitment Service is located on campus in the Base and handles all of the casual employment opportunities offered by the university.

The service also works with other local and national employers offering part-time and full-time work.

You should register online with the Employment & Recruitment Service if you are looking for part-time work.

Or you can search the current vacancies that are available.

NB - If you are an international student your visa may restrict the number of hours you can work.
