Student Jobs Career Fairs

Each year the Careers & Employability Service, in partnership with Student Jobs, showcase two recruitment events for students looking for part-time work whilst studying. In October, our Part-time Jobs Fair welcomes local employers to promote both on and off campus opportunities and in March we work in partnership with UPSU Volunteering to bring a host of voluntary, local and national employers onto campus for our Summer Opportunities Fair. Part-time work is a great way of not just earning some extra money but to also develop your communication skills, confidence and commercial awareness. Part-time work can be a really useful addition to your CV.
