Part-time or
casual work

Our Student Employment Agency can help you find a suitable student or graduate to fill your casual or part-time roles. It has thousands of students and graduates on its books and offers a flexible service, at very competitive rates.

Our students and graduates are looking for work

We have thousands of students who are looking for part-time, casual work to improve their employment prospects after graduation and help support themselves financially during their studies. We also have lots of graduates on our books who are looking for more experience. 

Students are allowed to work for:

  • 16 hours each week during term-time, and
  • as much as they want between May and September.

Graduates can of course work as much as they want at any time of year. 

What the Student Employment Agency offers

We can handle the full recruitment cycle for you, including:

  • advertising your vacancy
  • searching and selecting candidates
  • arranging interviews
  • completing on-boarding and ‘right to work’ checks
  • payroll.

Our rates are very competitive, and we are flexible and responsive — even if you need someone tomorrow. Speak to us today.

Suitable roles

Most roles that are temporary or casual would be suitable but our students are particularly keen to see more roles in the following sectors:

  • Customer service and administration
  • Early years and education
  • Events and hospitality
  • Marketing, digital and social media
  • Research roles or project support
  • Technical support.

You might need someone for just a day or several months.
