If you’re looking for a part-time job to fit alongside your studies then look no further! Here’s our essential guide to finding a part-time job.
Register with Hope Works
Take a close look around campus and you’re likely to see fellow students working in a variety of roles. With advertised positions in Catering, Hope Sports, The Library and Capstone Theatre there’s plenty of opportunity to get paid without setting foot off campus.
All our Hope Works positions are advertised on the My Hope system so if you’re looking for part-time work log on and complete the online registration form. From 30th September we’ll be in the Employability Hub from 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday for you to complete your registration and for us to check your Right to Work documents (the online system takes you step-by-step through the whole process).
Employability Hub dates for your diary:
Hope Works Registration 30th Sept – 11th Oct (weekdays) 10am-4pm
Secure a role in Catering Monday 30th Sept & Monday 7th Oct 2pm-3pm (informal interviews, no need to book just come along and speak to us. Hospitality experience is useful but not essential)
Attend our events and fairs
We organise a range of events throughout the year that offer you the opportunity to meet employers and hopefully secure employment. If you’re looking for a part-time job in Liverpool don’t miss our Part-time Jobs Fair at the start of term.
Part-time Jobs Fair 15th October 12-2pm
With paid roles in hospitality, education, social care and more, join us as we welcome some great employers on campus. Read our great blog by FGH Security to find out more about one of the jobs on offer.
Search our online vacancy system
You’ll also find part-time jobs advertised alongside internships, placements and graduate jobs on My Careers Centre, our online jobs board. Why not take a look and see if you can find a part-time job that not only offers you some much needed cash but also links to your course and will add invaluable experience to your CV? Advertised roles range from Teaching Assistant to paid art commissions, get searching here.
Get help with your application
Don’t forget you’ll need to provide as much relevant detail as possible to your application. Think about the skills and experience you’ve got and how these match the job description and person specification for the role you’re applying to and give the recruiting manager all the information they need to shortlist you for the job. For help and advice with applications visit our Careers Express Drop-in.

Strike the right balance
Juggling it all can be hard, we appreciate there’s a lot to manage with lectures, seminars, academic deadlines, socialising, sporting or voluntary commitments and work. You’ll need to be organised and be smart with your time. Try to find a part-time role that links with your career objectives or course and if you’re struggling to think of jobs that might link why not drop in to Careers Express to chat to a Careers Adviser?
