The Student Jobshop is based in the busy Students’ Union, and is the first port of call for students looking for part time and casual work. With just one email or telephone call from you, we can advertise your opportunities and help you find suitable students to fill your vacancies.

Our students have experience in a wide range of sectors including marketing, engineering, social media, IT, translation, retail, administration, hospitality, web design, customer service (and more). They are adaptable, creative and flexible employees who can bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to your business but who are also keen to learn and to build new skills for their future.

Whatever your requirements, with over 25,000 students studying here at the University of Sheffield, there’s sure to be one to meet your needs.


What do we offer?

We offer a FREE, simple, fast and effective recruitment service specifically tailored for local employers, whether your vacancy is for a few hours, a few days, a couple of weeks or longer term – some students stay with their employer throughout their time in Sheffield!

So, if you’ve got a vacancy to fill, our dedicated and experienced team will:

  • Advise on writing your job description to ensure you target the best students to fill your vacancy

  • Advise on pay rates- we ensure you are offering a competitive rate for the type of work you offer

  • Promote your vacancies- we will ensure that your vacancies are entered on to our vacancy service and publicised in the Jobshop window, distributed to departments and included on our social media, as appropriate

  • Advise on employing international students who can bring a global perspective to your business and an insight into life and work across the world

  • Streamline your recruitment by collecting and forwarding applications on your behalf if required

  • Provide a room for interviews or a stand on campus to promote your vacancies (discounted charges apply)

  • Contact you when your vacancy expires for feedback on how to improve our service
