Jobs On Campus: How to join

How to join

Before joining the Jobs On Campus pool of student workers, you must register as a casual worker through the Student Self Service Portal (S3P)

After you’ve registered for work on campus on S3P, you’ll receive an email within 2 working days inviting you to join the Jobs on Campus Teams site. From accepting your invite to join, it can then take up to 2 weeks to get your request approved and receive access to the Teams site. The site is open to all registered student workers and is where we advertise on campus work assignments. It also includes updates and information as well as resources to help you to develop your skills while you are working.

If you secure a role, you'll then be invited to complete a right to work check with the University's Recruitment Team. You won't be able to start work without this. 

Please only register if you intend to work on campus soon after registering. If you register for work and don’t complete any assignments within six months of registration, your personnel record will be deleted. You would need to re-register if you were offered any assignments after this date.

For more details, see Registering for work on campus. This includes a guide to registering for work and advice on how to check if you're already registered.
