Work whilst you study
Taking on part time work whilst you study is a great way to earn some money during your time at university. It also allows you to develop some new transferable skills which will be very beneficial when you are looking to secure a graduate role or placement.
Fortunately, studying at a university in a vibrant city like Leicester means that there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants always looking for students just like you to work on a part time basis, so there are lots of options for you to find something you’re interested in.
We’d recommend taking a look at sites such as Indeed and Highcross to see what vacancies are live. You could also keep an eye out in the local area for adverts on social media, noticeboards and in windows.
A big tip is to ensure that in your application you make it clear you are a full time student. You need to ensure that the company is aware of your commitments and that you are allowed to take time off during exam or holiday periods.
Did you know we also offer options right here on campus. This would be our first port of call when looking for a part time job, as your managers will understand that your studies need to come first and will have more flexibility with you.
