What makes a temporary student worker a Hero?
In every bar, office and store where our Heroes work, there are part time, gap year and temporary student workers who are seen as far more than an extra pair of hands. We have student workers who are valued every bit as highly as many of the permanent, full time staff. And the more a client values what you do, the more they will invite you back. So what can you do to ensure the businesses you work with see you as a Hero?
Self-discipline: It can be a real challenge, juggling your studies with the demands of a job, and even temporary student jobs in london require a level of commitment. The more organised and committed you are, the better. That means doing the basic things right, such as punctuality, focus, preparation and having a willingness to learn.
Don’t think of it as temporary: Of course, you are a student temp worker, and once university is over the chances are you’ll move on. But make a great impression now – by going the extra mile, being flexible and making yourself an integral part of the team – and you could have regular work for the rest of your time at university. If you want it, that could include summer jobs and holiday jobs too. That could add up to a lot of hours.
Join in: We’ll let you into a secret about our jobs for students: success isn’t simply about doing the job; it’s about how well you integrate with the team. Learning how to work as part of a diverse team can be a valuable skill now and in the future. Have fun working, many jobs are in a fun buzzy environment like waiter waitress, bar staff waiter and other jobs.

Temporary student jobs in London – the Q&A
Can I choose my hours?
Yes. That’s what makes Staff Heroes perfect for finding student jobs in London. Naturally, the more flexible you can be the more potential employers you’ll be able to work with. But suppose you have no lectures on a Friday afternoon, or you can work any evening except Sunday because there’s always an assignment to prep on Sunday night. Just tell the app and it will find employers offering hours that match your needs.
I don’t plan to work in retail/hospitality/admin when I leave uni. So why do it now?
Jobs in London for students offer far more than some handy extra cash (although they’re great for that too). There’s a wealth of customer service, teamworking, commercial savvy and entrepreneurial experience you can gain in a temporary student job which will serve you well long after you stop being a student. Remember, the role doesn’t need to be an exact match with your future career plans to give you lots of transferable skills that future employers will want.
How do I choose the right student job in London for me?
It’s a question of finding the right balance. Think about what you are good at. Consider the sort of role you might enjoy, and the sort of skills and responsibilities you want to develop. Crucially, be realistic about how much time you have. It’s much better to start with a few hours and build up than to find the perfect part time student job, only to have to give it up as study pressures increase. Also consider travel distances and how far you are prepared to travel from your student accommodation especially if you might be finishing work late.
I’m concerned about starting something but not being able to commit for a long period?
That’s no problem and many employers understand this. In fact they actively seek out student support for summer holiday and part time holiday jobs. You may even find that a temporary student job is a good stepping stone before taking on a graduate job and relieves the pressure to find your perfect grad job immediately.

"Recruiting temp staff in the hospitality industry is a massive headache for everyone, yet nothing has been done about it from a technology standpoint. Temp Staff turnover is significant creating high recruitment costs and this area is screaming for innovation. Staff Heroes have got it spot on and are on to something which is going to be big”Olly Etridge - First Restaurant Group
"The admin and wasted time from recruiting and managing temp staff is a big problem for all pubs and restaurants. Having an agency in the middle is not ideal as it causes friction and delays... and obviously there are costs involved. If Staff Heroes can provide temp staff on demand and automate the supply and management end to end then they are going to be massively successful”Bruce Newman - SA Brain and Company Ltd
"Many hospitality businesses are still turning to traditional channels such as job boards for temp staffing. This is only one step in the end to end temporary staffing solution and if Staff Heroes can automate from sourcing to payroll this will save everyone a huge amount of time, leaving us to get on with our jobs. A huge improvement for temp staffing!”Alex Davenport Jones - The Porch House
