Employment Issues


Many students need to earn money while they study. The University has a Careers Network that will help you with your CV, and have suggestions where you can find a part-time job.

It is important that you do not work too much in term time, as your studies may suffer. 

Once you have a job, the employer has legal obligations towards you but equally you have responsibilities to them. Our leaflet below will provide an overview of these rights and responsibilities.

If you are having a problem on your placement or need to discuss any concerns you are having, we strongly encourage you to contact the Placement team. You should do this as soon as you can and definitely before resigning or taking any action.
