Hello everyone! For this blog I thought I would talk about working while studying and specifically, working for the university.
Throughout the Edge Hill campus, there are a variety of job’s available to students in different areas of the university. The town and surrounding areas are also obviously viable places to apply for jobs and you should apply to lot’s of places if you are looking, but Edge Hill is especially good because of the rapport between you as a student and the university. Working for Edge Hill as a student might mean less issues brought up by holiday’s or getting paid the wrong amount etc that might occur within other workplaces.
There are a variety of roles on campus from traditional part-time physical roles that would involve working at the location week by week at whatever the task entails. This could be work within the Library, the sports centre or the SU bar. There are also more flexible roles such as working as a student ambassador or a student guide for open days. These roles may only be over certain days or weeks and can function as a good extra on top of your studies or any work you already have. The university also offers mainly online roles to apply for such as vlogging, blogging and online mentoring. These roles are primarily ones you can work at on your own time whenever you see fit, and offer great flexibility in choosing when and how long you want to work for, they are also great ways to subsidise your studies or another job.
Edge Hill does post vacancies throughout the year through its vacancies service for students which I will link below so keep checking if you are interested, but around the start of the year is when more vacancies will be posted so if you are a current or prospective student, make sure you are looking around then if you are interested as jobs here and off campus are in really high demand. I will leave a link to more information on jobs and the vacancy service as well if you are interested, and any questions just let me know and thanks for reading!
