Incredible service and access to jobs that I otherwise wouldn’t know about while I was studying.

Jobshop helped me access a highly motivated team that worked perfectly with my staffing needs.

Franklin1st Year Mathematics Student 

When I first started Uni, I really struggled to find a job. I went to JobShop’s Part-Time Jobs Fair and spoke to loads of local employers. I was offered two different roles after handing out my CV there.

Aisha3rd Year Mathematics Student 

I got my first job through JobShop, I’ve been with the same employer now for 2 years and they’ve even offered me a full-time role when I have finished my degree!

Finding a job through JobShop couldn’t be easier. You can just check out their website, Instagram or job wall in the SU to see what they have available. They always provide links to apply so the process is straight forward.

Jessica1st Year Geography Student 

After meeting JobShop at Fresher’s Fair, I searched the website for jobs and applied to a couple. I had an interview request straight away from an employer and had a job within a few weeks!

JobShop's mailing list helped me find a customer service job in no time right next to my campus, which enabled me to earn some extra cash along side my studies.

Students

What is JobShop?

JobShop is an online service that is operated by the University of Manchester Students’ Union. We advertise part-time jobs within the Students’ Union as well as with external employers in Manchester.

I need some help find a part-time job. What support is on offer?

We run a weekly drop-in support session called JobClub. You can get in-person support from writing CVs to practising interviews. Pop in anytime from 10am-12pm on a Thursday (during term-time) in The Nest, Ground Floor of the Students’ Union.

Do I need to sign up?

No! You can view all of our available jobs on the ‘Job Board’ tab. You can sign up to the mailing list to receive notifications of new job opportunities, if you want to.

How do I apply for a job through JobShop?

Each advert will specific how you should apply. Sometimes you’ll send a CV to a given email address, sometimes there will be a link for you to submit an application form.

I want to work for the Students’ Union. How do I do that?

We often advertise jobs at the Students’ Union. Jobs are normally available during August, but they do recruit throughout the year. Check out the website for more info

Do you advertise internships or graduate schemes?

Nope! We focus on part-time jobs that you can do whilst you are studying – everything else is done through UoM Careers

Employers

If I want to advertise a vacancy with you, what do I need to provide?

We’ll need a job description (that includes wage), a link to apply for the job and a jpeg/png copy of your logo.

If you are a new client, you’ll need to complete a new customer form as well. You’ll only need to complete this the first time.

Can you help me recruit staff as well as advertise?

Yes! We can run your full recruitment process for you including advertising, shortlisting and interviewing candidates for you. Just get in touch with us and we will put together a bespoke recruitment package for you.

How much does it cost to advertise?

We have 4 advertisement packages available, starting from £99+ VAT. All money generated through JobShop is invested directly back into the Students’ Union.

You can see the available packages on the ‘Employers’ page at the bottom.

What does an advertising package include?

You choose a package based on how many different methods you want to advertise with. For example, you could choose our Advanced Package and then choose your preferred ways to advertise such as via our Mailing List and Social Media post.

If you aren’t sure on which one to choose, we’d be happy to advise you.

We’re a charity and want to advertise. Can we get a discount?

Yes, of course – we'll give you a 10% discount, just give us your charity number when you make a booking.
