Looking for work
Being able to find a part time job not only allows you to earn some money while you are studying, but also build on your employability skills for the future. Once you have completed your CV, you can upload it to the following job sites. This allows you to register and create alerts when vacancies appear.
Please note, some employers will use a number of sites, so you may see the same job advertised on many sites.
Also, some employers DO NOT advertise on any job sites at all, they may only advertise on their own company website; so it’s worth checking them out too!
