Student Jobs

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?

Student jobs board

“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 the jobs board so I would recommend it to all students.” Suprojit Das, MSc Electrical Engineering
Before you can use this external service, you’ll need to create an account with an email address of your choice. You may want to use a private email address so that you have access to job alerts once you graduate.

Good luck with your job search.

Part-time jobs fairs

Attending a fair will give you the opportunity to network with local and national employers who have current part-time vacancies which will fit around your studies. We hold two fairs every academic year; our Part-time Jobs Fair takes place in semester one and our Summer Opportunities Fair takes place in semester two. Fairs are widely advertised on campus and on our social media.
