Have you ever wondered how to make money with the university? Wonder no longer, for I have arrived with the answers!
UCB offers a wide variety of temporary (or permanent) job opportunities. We have student ambassadors, kitchen porters, front-of-house staff, porter jobs and many, many more.
To apply you need to register yourself with Unitemps.com (a student staffing agency originally founded in Warwick, 1997). If you go to the 7th floor Summer Row, ask at the reception, you will be given a paper. You must follow the instructions on the paper! Just because you register with Unitemps doesn’t mean you are in the scheme!
Unitemps will invite you to an interview. The purpose of this meeting is for them to assess you as a candidate, show you how to navigate around the website, how to submit time-sheets and – mainly – where they should pay you.
The hard part of the battle is won. You can start applying on the website for jobs. You will find, however, that most of the jobs require you to be a student ambassador.
Student ambassadors work for the marketing department. You can’t miss them when they’re around; their vibrant blue hoodie shines throughout the room. As an ambassador, you are asked to represent the university as a current student. Your experience is invaluable! More on student ambassadors in the future.
Student ambassador? Check. Unitemps? Check. Well then, time to start applying. Most of the jobs advertised are only temporary (open days are amongst the most common assignments), so I do not recommend completely depending on Unitemps as a main income generator. I think of the work I do with Unitemps as… well, side cash.
In conclusion: Unitemps is working in partnership with Hired for students who would like to work for university and outside opportunities, while studying. Applying and registering is very simple and working even easier. Definitely worth the hussle.
