Working on Campus

Working on Campus

Working on campus is a great way to develop your vocational skills at a fair hourly rate.

How to find work on campus

There's a wide range of paid work opportunities available on campus each year. Information about looking for an on campus role is available from the Careers Service.

New paperless system

Rather than the paper forms used previously, work will now be assigned to you through an app. You’ll be able to access it from any device including laptop and mobile.

The app is called ‘My working hours’ and will make it simple for you to keep track of all of the work you are doing on campus. You'll also be able to submit hours for approval and find payment details, and the app will completely remove any need for paper forms.

New policy and pay rates

Along with the new system, we’ve introduced a new policy and new pay rates for employing students on Campus. Learn more about these here.
