Employability

 

As part of our pledge to leave you with the skills and knowledge to excel in your chosen field of work we have a dedicated careers centre which sets out to provide our students and graduates with expertise, opportunities for development and connections to employers to help you secure a job.

Part-time employment and volunteering opportunities

Having quality work experience is an important aspect in being able to secure employment after you have completed your studies.

Unitemps is a university owned staffing agency which provides part-time and temporary work to students and graduates to supplement their income while learning. The university recruits student ambassadors through this service for its open days and various other events so if you feel like this is something for you, get yourself registered.

There are also volunteering opportunities available through our Student's Union inVOLved volunteering scheme. Get inVOLved to boost your CV, learn more about yourself, develop your skills and support the local community or our very own Staffordshire graduates.

Student Ambassador Scheme

Interested in becoming a student ambassador?

Another way to earn some useful cash is by joining our Student Ambassador Scheme. We know from experience that students can help others to find out more about Higher Education, life as a student and about Staffordshire University.

Student Ambassadors help out at various recruitment events. Plus, the scheme also gives you the opportunity to further develop your social, organisational, problem solving, time management and communication skills in a practical way.

Application are made through unitemps between August and September.

Business Venture Support

Be Inspired

Through our BeInspired project we look to train, develop, mentor and fund both students and graduates with great business ideas by connecting them with investors, entrepreneurs, politicians, role models and industry leaders to improve the chance of success when opening a new business.
