We can help you get a part-time job

Tuesday 24 March 2015

If you want some extra cash and you're looking for a part-time job, our Careers and Employability team can help. Not only can we point you in the right direction – we can also help you put a winning CV together and prepare for interviews to increase your chances. Have a look on the Career Hub for details of upcoming workshops.

Why you should consider a part-time job

As well as being a great way to earn money, part-time work gives you the experience that graduate employers are looking for – and you can fit it around your studies and other commitments. Even if you don’t work in an area related to your career aspirations, the transferrable skills you gain will be invaluable.

We can help with your job search

We advertise hundreds of part-time vacancies from a wide range of organisations on the Careers Central Jobs and Events database – including jobs at the University itself through our Campus Jobs scheme. These roles include student ambassadors, events assistants, student researchers and many more.

We also invite employers to promote part-time vacancies at recruitment events, including the Work While You Study Fair which will be held on Wednesday 24 February at City Campus and on Thursday 25 February at Collegiate Campus.

Help with submitting a successful application

We can help you build your CV, complete application forms and practice for interviews, giving you a great start when it comes to getting a job. Visit Careers Central to find out more about the support we offer.

Feedback from students who have worked on-campus

I engaged in tasks which were completely out of my comfort zone. I gained so much confidence, an insight into the work 'behind the scenes' at the Uni and so many transferable skills for my future career.

Jessica Dixon, psychology student

If I have one bit of advice it would be get involved in working on campus. You will really start to see the benefits. There are so many skills to be learnt and so much knowledge and experience available here at Sheffield Hallam.
