Introducing Student Jobs

The University of Plymouth recognises that many of our students want and need to work while they study, whether for financial reasons or to build skills and improve their employability.

Student Jobs provides a free recruitment service to support our students in finding and applying for paid part-time work to fit around their studies (up to 20 hours a week).

Working part-time is an excellent way of gaining valuable experience, which could help you to stand out from the crowd when you start applying for graduate opportunities.

Pop into the Careers & Employability Hub in the Roland Levinsky Building and talk to our friendly Student Jobs staff about securing part-time employment.

How do we support you in your job search?

Find vacancies on myCareer

“I am an international student from India and I work part time to enhance my CV in order to find a graduate placement. Part-time jobs aren’t just helping my career, these roles are developing me as a person and improving my language skills. I found all of these roles on myCareer so I would recommend it to all students.” 
Suprojit Das, MSc Electrical Engineering
