Why attend the Part-time Jobs Fair?

  • Many employers who are looking to recruit students for part-time work both on and off campus 
  • There are hundreds of jobs in industries such as retail, hospitality, education, sport and many more
  • You’ll be able to chat to employers, register with them and Legoland and Thorpe Park are even interviewing on the day
  • Careers Consultants will be on hand to answer your questions on the day.

What are the benefits of a part-time job?

  • Working part-time is a good way to help cover living and academic expenses while studying
  • It’s also a way to gain valuable work experience before graduating
  • A part-time job is a great way to find out what you like and don’t like about a role and what you’re good at
  • You learn new skills when working. For example, by interacting with people, whether it’s your line manager or a team, you are building some communication skills. These are the important transferable skills which employers are looking for
  • Apart from the advantage of earning some extra money while you study, part-time work provides great experience, which can help you when applying for jobs after you graduate
  • You can update your CV and LinkedIn profile with your role and responsibilities and when it comes to job applications and interviews, you have real-world examples to discuss with employers.

Working alongside your studies


  • Here at Royal Holloway, there’s lots of opportunities for you to get a part-time job.

-       Various departments in the College recruit students for part-time and casual roles.

-       Royal Holloway employs around one in eight of its students, an unusually high figure for a university.

        These campus-based roles are quite useful as they can integrate well with your academic work.

-       If you’re looking to work off campus, local employers also recruit throughout the year.

Frequently asked questions

How should I prepare?

  • Do some extra research on the employers attending

  • Have some general questions to ask the employers, e.g. What's the work culture like? What roles are available? 

  • Remember to bring along your college ID card to be scanned as you enter the fair, there's no need to pre-register.

 

What should I wear?

  • There is no set dress code, but remember you are there to meet real-life employers. No need to wear a suit, but a shirt and smart jeans may help you make a professional impression on an employer rather than your sportswear.

I'm an International student. Can I get a part-time job?

  • If you're an international student, please check to see if you have proof of right to work in the UK and/or the terms of your student visa. To find out more, please visit the UKCISA website. (See the video presentation abelow)
  • I'm an employer, how can I exhibit at the Part-time Jobs Fair?
