Employment Advice

Your rights as an employee

Working part-time alongside your studies has many potential benefits not only earning extra money to support your time at Keele you can use it to improve your transferable employability skills! 

Graduate employers complain of a lack of commercial awareness and exposure to workplace environments, interactions and demands in graduates. You can gain all this as well as demonstrating your teamwork, timekeeping, communication skills and much more by balancing a little part-time work with your studies. 

You also get to meet new people and reports have shown that working part-time helps with the transition into graduate employment. KeeleSU itself is a great place to work to gain these skills but Jobshop can help you to find work both on and off-campus to help with skills development!

We work closely with Keele Careers & Employability to help you recognise, articulate and demonstrate the transferable employability skills you gain from part-time work to meet the needs of graduate employers!
