Many students work part-time whilst at university. Depending on your course, you may be able to work a regular part time job and for others, you may need something more flexible.

You’ll get so much more than money from a part time job. Future employers value part-time work on your CV, which includes valuing part-time work in a sector not related to where you want to work as a graduate. 

A job alongside your studies can help you develop & demonstrate skills such as:

  • Motivation and drive
  • Time management
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Organisational skills

King’s Careers & Employability are here to support you at every stage of your career, including finding part-time work and providing advice and guidance.
