Administration experience via Unitemps
Some of the most flexible roles on offer at Unitemps are in the administrative sector. University departments and companies are often looking for someone to cover a role at short notice or assist with a project on a temporary basis and these can fit the student lifestyle perfectly. The skills and experience gained during these administration assignments can boost your CV and demonstrate flexibility and reliability. If you are interested in this type of assignment and have a varied study schedule, try searching for roles that state ‘20 hours a week, flexible Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 9am – 5pm’ or something similar, as this generally means that as long as you can provide 20 hours of cover during the specified days, the timings can be negotiated to fit around your current schedule. Often there are roles that offer a few hours per week on a short-term basis, meaning that they could be a perfect opportunity during term time to fill the hours between key lectures and seminars. These short-term temp jobs also let you experience a wide variety of roles so you can see which are suited to you.
If you are staying on or around campus during term breaks there is often the opportunity to work full time for a few weeks. This will not only increase your employability skills, but your bank account too!
The graduate market place is often difficult and there is fierce competition for employment. Employers want to see examples of employment experience when reading CVs, and being a student means this isn’t always easy to find. Working through Unitemps means you can have a wealth of experience to include on your CV, line managers to contact for references and a good working knowledge of office systems and protocols.
