Working Part time during your studies
  • We trawl the shops, bars and businesses of Sheffield (including both the University and Students’ Union) to identify part-time opportunities to fit around your studies. Don’t forget, we recommend up to 16 hrs per week during semesters, but you can work longer hours in holidays

  • Want to gain skills and experience? Ask about our many programmes which can build those all important ‘employability’ skills – ask about our Taste of Work, Skills for Work Certificate and the Sheffield Graduate Award.

  • Struggling with your CV? Writing a CV can be a challenge but good news - we can help you to organise your experience and present it to employers so that you stand the best chance of success in finding part-time work.
