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.

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!

It is important to check your visa to confirm if you can work during your studies. Your work condition includes any paid work, unpaid work, voluntary work and internships. If your course of study is at degree level or above, you are allowed to work up to a maximum of 20 hours per week during term time, and full-time during vacations. You can have multiple jobs but you must not work over your weekly hour limit. You must add all your work hours together and ensure that the total is below the limit.
JobShop makes every effort to ensure featured jobs are genuine, lawful and non-discriminatory. You may, however, occasionally see jobs which are not genuine and whose only purpose is to take advantage of you, usually financially. Sometimes these are illegal but they often exploit loopholes or grey areas in the law or rely on the applicant not reading and understanding what they are getting into.
Please see the below tips for avoiding scam jobs:
- If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
- If a company asks you to ring a premium rate number as the only way to apply, be very wary.
- Be suspicious if directed to different numbers, websites or a different company name than the one in the advert you responded to. This may be done to hide a bad reputation.
- Avoid schemes where you make money by signing up new members to sell for you.
- Make sure you ask questions about the job if you are unsure.
- Do not be pressurised to sign up to anything you do not fully understand.
- When you first apply, do not provide bank or financial information, passport or similar identification. (These might be required later, but only if you get the job).
