To advertise jobs through the Union, or the JobShop board, is completely free of charge. Simply email the details to email@example.com. We are only able to advertise opportunities that meet the criteria of all our Students’ Union policies and values.
All of our students have different timetables and course commitments can be difficult to rearrange so we are able to promote any opportunities that are flexible. A full-time degree means full-time hours, therefore it’s imperative that students only work part-time with contracts, we’d suggest, up to 18 hours per week.
Please note, we are unable to advertise unpaid internships, full-time roles or graduate roles on this page.
