Additional Part-Time Opportunities

Other sources of part-time work at the university include:

  • Student Ambassadors: the University recruits a number of student ambassadors on a paid basis to promote the University, help with open days, campus tours and conferences.
  • Student Reps: The Student Union recruit students to get involved in various activities such as Course and School Reps.  Some of these positions carry a financial incentive.
  • On Campus Opportunities: the university recruits students to work in a number of departments including roles such as admin workers, sports hall attendants, library workers and casual ad hoc helpers.  Positions are advertised on the jobs portal when they become available.

It takes a lot of self-discipline to keep on top of your studies and hold down paid work.  Remember!  You are paying a lot of money to study at University so this should be a priority.  As a result, the University recommends that you do not work more than 16 hours a week during term-time, as this could have a negative impact on your studies.

International Students

Before you embark on any job opportunity please check your conditions of stay in the UK.  Undergraduate international students are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week during term-time.  Postgraduate students on a masters or PhD will have different rules and should seek advice from the international office.

Part-time work with large national employers

Please note that many large employers such as Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury's, B&Q etc. advertise their part-time vacancies on their own job website. There is an expectation that potential recruits will seek out vacancies and download applications via the organisations own website.
