Student JobshopJobshoplarge

The Jobshop is located on Level 3 of the Students' Union, next to SSiD. Opening hours: Mon-Fri 10-3pm; Tues 11-3pm.

Whether you are looking for a part-time job to earn some extra cash or you want to gain some additional skills and experience whilst you study, the Student Jobshop team is here to help.

We trawl the shops, bars and businesses of Sheffield (including the Students' Union itself and University departments) to find part-time jobs that will fit around your studies. Use us too to find out about vacation work, summer internships or year out placements.

We hope you will come up and see us – you’ll find us in the Students' Union between New Leaf and SSiD, or look out for us out and about on campus.

You can also find out more on Facebook and Twitter (available on the right)
