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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
