How to register as a casual student worker for work opportunities on campus

Have you been offered work on campus?  

If you have been offered a work assignment on campus you must ensure that you have:

  1. Registered as a student worker via S3P
  2. Completed a right to work check with People Services
  3. Have a work assignment booked in the My Working Hours app.

If you have not yet been offered a work assignment you can find information on how to find work opportunities on campus here.

How do I register for work?

You can register as a student worker through the Student Self Service Portal (S3P) and completing a right to work check with People Services. You must complete a right to work check before your registration is complete, you will not be able to commence work without this.  

You can find guidance on how to register for work and how to check if you are already registered in our S3P Registering for Work Guide.

You only need to register as a casual worker at the University once, unless you ask to leave university employment and then choose to work for the university again at a later date.

Who do I contact for a Right to Work check?

Once you have registered for work via S3P you will be required to complete a right to work check with the People Services Recruitment Team.

For UK/Irish Nationals, you are able to evidence your eligibility to work in the UK by providing a copy of your UK/Irish passport or Birth Certificate along with proof of National Insurance.  To then verify your documentation, we are required to arrange an appointment with you via MS Teams.

For non-UK/Irish Nationals, you are able to evidence your eligibility to work in the UK by completing an Online Right to Work using this webpage.

You can then supply us with your share code and confirmation of date of birth and we can organise a video call with you to verify this check.

Please note that all right to work calls are by appointment only. During peak times (September to November and February to April) we will require a minimum of 5 working days notice before your work is due to commence to arrange an appointment. Please ensure you have a right to work appointment booked at least one day in advance of your assignment start date. You must not commence any paid work activity before your right to work check has been completed.

How do I access the My Working Hours App?

You will not be able to access the My Working Hours App until the department you are working for create your first work assignment in the Manage Student Work app. Once your first assignment has been created you will receive an email providing you with a link to access the app. Guidance on how to use the My Working Hours App can be found here

Once registered will I receive job alerts?

Registering for work does not mean you will automatically receive updates about work opportunities on campus. Information on how to keep up to date with new vacancies can be found here.

What will happen if I register for work but do not complete an assignment?

We advise you to only register for work, once you have been asked to undertake an assignment. If you register for work via S3P and do not complete any assignments in the six months after you have signed up, your personnel record will be deleted. This means that you will be required to re-register via S3P should you be offered assignments after this date.

If you have worked previously, but have not completed any assignments within the last 12 months, your personnel record will be made a 'leaver'. You will be able to re-register if you are offered any assignments after this date
